Bravo cancels Kathy Griffin's 'Kathy'

Monday, April 8, 2013 - 5:42pm

Like a seasoned comic, Kathy Griffin took a bit of bad news and turned it into stand-up material.

The comedian was gearing up for a Friday performance in Cincinnati, Ohio, on Thursday when she learned that Bravo wasn't bringing back her talk show, "Kathy."

The program's second season just began in January.

When it came time to take the stage at the Taft Theatre, Griffin found a way to poke fun at the news - although she did bury it into her act, said a review in the Cincinnati Enquirer.

She explained to the crowd at the Taft that she found out "Kathy" wasn't going to be renewed the day before, prompting "boos" from the audience in response.

But Griffin turned it around, "predicting the demise of Bravo," the Enquirer said.

She also confirmed the cancellation on her Twitter account, calling the news "sad but true."

Griffin does have a performance scheduled here in Baton Rouge. She will headline on Saturday, May 11 at 7:00 p.m. at the L’Auberge Casino. Click here for more information about that event.
