Kathy is a one-hour talk show hosted by stand up comedian and reality show star Kathy Griffin on the Bravo network. Griffin is known for her caustic take on celebrities and pop culture, as well as her no-holds-barred style. Rather than bring movies stars to the show, the format focuses on discussing them. The conversation often covers taboo and sexual topics, so the program may be best suited to mature audiences as the discussion includes swearing and crude humor. The show begins with a brief monologue by Griffin similar to her comedy specials and nightclub performances, where she mocks the behavior of popular tabloid fixtures like Kim Kardashian or Sarah Palin.. She then joins a round table discussion about the latest celebrity gossip, TV shows and current events with lesser known comics, writers and ordinary folks, like her production assistant Cole Bruns or personal assistant Tiffany Rinehart to broaden the perspective beyond Hollywood insiders. Occasionally, Griffin includes personal friends like singer Lance Bass and fellow talk show host Chelsea Handler in the round table. The show also intersperses filmed comic bits and celebrity interviews with the discussion segment with guests such as the music group Wilson Phillips, actress Jane Fonda, reporter Lisa Ling and reality star Sharon Osbourne. Lisa Kudrow, Chris Noth, Jane Lynch and T.I. have also visited the set. For an added personal touch, Griffin regularly includes her over 90-year old mother, Maggie, by placing her in the front row of the audience with her trademark box of wine. Maggie wears a microphone and often reprimands Kathy for going too far or picking on one of her personal favorites, like political pundit Bill O'Reilly. For fans of Kathy Griffin, the show captures all the elements of her personal style and interests familiar from her routines and reality program. Kathy dramatically departs from the typical talk show format by mocking Hollywood and not providing the typical platform for publicity.
