Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Explicit Version. For Your Consideration. A comedy CD created exclusively for the purpose of gaining a Grammy nomination. Kathy explodes onto your stereos and IPODS with track names like Straight Guys Wake Up! and Hi Barbara Walters.
Loved by some, loathed by many, comedienne Kathy Griffin (MY LIFE ON THE D-LIST) plays up her proudly obnoxious persona on this 2008 live album. Staying true to her Hollywood insider/outsider celebrity-skewering ways, Griffin tells irreverent tales of Barbara Walters, and explains why "Oprah Is a Deity (And I Think She's Full of Sh**)." She also warmly mocks her mom on a wide range of subjects, from her TV-viewing habits to her love of boxed wine to her singular fashion sense. While FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION isn't likely to convert those who are Griffin-adverse, it is a fine example of her unabashedly brassy humor.
