Kathy Griffin

The Colonial Theatre is pleased to welcome Kathy Griffin to the stage Thursday, April 27, 2017.

Two-time Emmy and Grammy award-winning comedian Kathy Griffin is a towering figure on television, on tour and in publishing. She breaks through the entertainment clutter with her universally recognized brand of pull-no-punches comedy.

A #1 New York Times bestselling author, Kathy recently released her much-anticipated second book, “Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z Index,” in November 2016.  The book is an A-Z compendium of the celebrities she’s met over the years and the outrageous, charming and sometimes-bizarre anecdotes only she can tell about them. Simultaneously, she revealed a brand new nationwide, 50-city standup tour under the same moniker that will begin in January of 2017.  

In 2016, Kathy completed her 80-city, “Like A Boss” Tour, with stops from coast to coast including a four-night run at the famed Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, CA, and two sold out performances at the illustrious Kennedy Center in Washington DC and the iconic Carnegie Hall in New York, NY.

From penning New York Times best-selling books to filling the country’s biggest concert halls on her comedy tours, Griffin has cemented herself as one of the most powerful figures in comedy. Unfiltered, unafraid, and utterly hilarious – she is a must-see for any stand-up fan.

Kathy Griffin is in wickedly funny form…for an immersion into something truly wild, there’s nothing like experiencing Kathy Griffin live.” – The Los Angeles Times

Juston McKinney

 

New Hampshire’s Juston McKinney returns in 2016 with lots of new material. Juston has two Comedy Central specials, including his own one-hour special, and multiple appearances on The Tonight Show and on Conan O’Brien, but there’s still no place like home!

When New Hampshire magazine named him “Best of NH” they wrote, “The Granite State may have more famous comedians than you can shake a stick at (Seth Meyers, Sarah Silverman and Adam Sandler to name a few) but no one really ‘gets’ New Hampshire humor like Juston McKinney. He’s been using the state as his comic muse since he was humoring perps as a deputy sheriff on the NH/ME border in the 1990s. Now he’s got TV deals galore and appearances on The Tonight Show and Comedy Central.”

His YouTube channel has over a million views, including New Hampshire favorites such as “Live Free or Die” and “Live Freeze Then Die!”

Born in Portsmouth, Juston currently lives in New Hampshire with his wife, two children and two dogs.
