Kathy Griffin to do new shows, 9 months after Trump photo

Kathy Griffin Announces First US Shows Since Controversial Trump Photo

In fact, her first two shows are set to take place right in "Trump's backyard".

"I'm dipping my toes into touring again even though the Trumps and nobody wants me to work again", she told Maher.

The dates for the shows have not yet been announced, but in a tweet posted shortly after her "Real Time" appearance, Griffin said tickets for the Carnegie Hall show will go on sale next week.

These are the comedian's first performances following the backlash she received for posing for a photo with a fake severed head made to look like Donald Trump. While in the middle of a "50-city tour", she remembered TMZ reporting her show cancellations "in real time", which she says "scared" other theaters. She also lost her longtime New Year's Eve hosting gig on CNN. But because she was under investigation in the United States, she was "detained at every single airport", she said.

Griffin initially apologized for the photo, but she said in August, "I am no longer sorry, the whole outrage was B.S., the whole thing got so blown out of proportion".

Griffin thanked Maher for being one of the only celebrities who publicly supported her during the ordeal. "Everyone makes mistakes. Kathy Griffin should not go away". "They're normally doing "Stomp" or 'Mama Mia, '" not dealing with what she says were multiple death threats against her.

Referring to the desire of some Trump supporters to "decimate" her, she raised her arms defiantly and exclaimed, "I'm not decimated!"

Nine months after her career was almost derailed by the backlash over a provocative, anti-Trump photo shoot, Kathy Griffin has lined up high-profile gigs at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center.
