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

"But I'm dipping my toes in and I just booked today, I'm gonna do a show at Carnegie Hall in NY, and I'm also gonna go right to Trump's backyard and do a show at the Kennedy Center".

She contrasted that public support with other unnamed "celebrities" who, she said, texted her "saying "Don't tell anybody about this text, [but] I totally support you".

Kathy Griffin is wading back into the world of comedy nearly one year after a Donald Trump photo scandal derailed her career.

Earlier, Griffin thanked Maher for his support during the uproar over the photo, which depicted her holding the severed head of Donald Trump.

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.

"I'm dipping my toes into touring again, even though the Trumps and nobody wants me to work again", Griffin said Friday on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, her first major TV appearance since the photo.

"TMZ was reporting my show cancellations in real time". Many of her 2017 performances were canceled, but Griffin will return to to the stage in 2018. "I did 15 countries and 23 cities, and I was detained at every single airport, which is frightening", Griffin said.

The photo not only got Griffin booted from her New Year's Eve hosting duties on CNN, but launched a two month federal investigation by two departments from the Department of Justice.

Kathy Griffin is an American comedian and actress.

Referring to the desire of some Trump supporters to "decimate" her, she raised her arms defiantly and exclaimed, "I'm not decimated!" "After you were courageous enough to speak out I'm happy to offer you a job as my stylist to dress me this week for Jimmy Kimmel and Real Time & I'll PAY you".
