I cannot stand Kathy Griffith

She is not funny at all. Her attempts to "shock" us are utter failures. Not sure why CNN keeps asking her back every New Years Eve. BTW, I keep switching to CNN when MSNBC is on commercial break and I am forced to change it back when I see her on there.

2. I love her!

 

She's a great progressive politically.
And very talented, comic-wise.

19. I usually hate NYE shows, but love Griffin and Cooper

Every year, they make me laugh a lot.

Been fans of both forever (Cooper's since 'World News Now' with the polka).

6. sorry, we've seen her live and she's absolutely hilarious!

people have different tastes among comedians, so i recognize that her schtick (most notably taking other celebrities down a notch or two) might not be for everyone.

but mrs. unblock and i think she's one of the best out there.

26. I noticed she is part of the trend of calling women "whores"

when she thinks they sleep around too much.

In that (and going for the nasty, gross-out stuff with gusto) she reminds me of Chelsea Handler. Unlike Chelsea and some others, she doesn't seem to use "gay" as a synonym for "stupid", "tasteless", etc.

But she probably make the Andrew Dice Clay of the 80s blanch.

when paired up with Anderson Cooper.

Just because you don't find her funny doesn't mean she isn't funny to others, btw.

21. I've never quite understood the concept of "caustic humor". Rickles was the first comedian I heard

whose schtick was referred to that way and I've never thought mean was funny. I never heard much Lenny Bruce but then I didn't think he was that funny either.

She's NOT funny, and her voice reminds me of a noise that can only be remedied with belt dressing.

29. I've never cared for her, either. Mainly, she's not funny (to me). I don't think I've ever laughed

at any of her jokes, and that's going back for years. Her voice is irritating, too. I'm sure she's a nice, good person and all, but I don't find her funny. My sister, though, finds her very funny. Go figure.

32. The other seasons have been even better

Try to download them

I love her, her standup is okay to me, but I LOVE her reality show. She is so funny on that.

I also recommend reading her autobiography. It is very interesting and open.

33. I cannot believe anyone

would post how great Kathy Griffith is after what she did to Anderson Cooper on national TV last night. She claims to be his friend. Friends are supposed to treat each other with respect, not to make attempts at humiliation.

36. Just don't find her funny. Never did.

She always seems to be desperately casting about for laughs, very undisciplined. I can just hear her thinking "You didn't like that last gag? How 'bout THIS one?? PLEASE LIKE ME!!!"
