My friend Anne and I went to see Kathy Griffin in concert on Wednesday at Constitution Hall. For those of you not familiar with the DC area, Constitution Hall is owned by the DAR and located next door to the campus of George Washington University. This venue is also notorious for having the most uncomfortable seating for events requiring one to sit for any length of time, like a two-hour concert.
Now I've never seen Kathy Griffin's Bravo show My Life on the D-List, but I do know her from stand-up and Suddenly Susan. Anne is a huge fan and really wanted to go, so I went. I had heard that Griffin was incredibly gay friendly and it really showed in the make-up of the audience. If you're a fan of chasing Amy, it was definitely the place to be.
The show itself was fairly funny, aside from a joke about Bill Shatner killing his wife. All in all, it was a relatively pleasant evening despite the late arrival of the cast of Zoolander who felt they had to stand for the first five minutes of the show.
The best part? That was when I was handed a card advertising an upcoming event. That event, ladies and gentlemen, is Morrissey in concert on November 2!! Shoplifters of the world, unite and take over!
