Comedy Central Extra has picked up the exclusive first run UK broadcast rights to Kathy Griffins late night talk show Kathy, which aired on Bravo in the United States before recently being cancelled. Comedy Central Extra will start airing the series, beginning with the second season, from Thursday May 2nd at 10pm.
Kathy is a weekly prime-time talk show hosted by two-time Emmy award winner Kathy Griffin. Every week, Kathy will be joined by a throng of celebrities to discuss everything pop culture from the latest celebrity scandals to Kathy’s new favorite television obsession to her most recent celebrity run in. Previous guest, Jane Fonda, called her “basically insane,” Chelsea Handler quipped, “You’re going to have to bleep all of this,” and Jimmy Kimmel commented, “It’s very hot in hell, Kathy.” In addition to celebrities, Kathy will again be joined by her often intoxicated mother, Maggie, and always adorable assistant, Tiffany, as well as a panel of friends, co-workers and normal people dishing on the weeks headlines. In the opening episode of the show’s second season Kathy will be joined by guests Jane Lynch (Glee) and Lisa Kudrow (Web Therapy).
