Comedian Kathy Griffin says she’s embarking on a comeback tour, some nine months after provoking outrage — and losing much of her work — by posing with a fake severed head of President Donald Trump.
Griffin announced on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday night that she has booked upcoming shows at New York City’s Carnegie Hall and at Washington’s Kennedy Center.
“Trump’s backyard,” she called it.
“I’m dipping my toes into touring again,” Griffin said, asserting that the president and his supporters would likely prefer she never worked again.

Griffin’s appearance on Maher’s show appeared to mark the beginning of her comeback attempt, after the backlash over the offending photo last May badly hurt her ability to work.
“TMZ was reporting my show cancellations in real time,” she said. Griffin also lost her longtime New Year’s Eve co-hosting gig with Anderson Cooper on CNN.
