[via press release from Bravo]


NEW YORK - July 26, 2012 - Hot off of her recent Emmy nomination for the comedy special, "Kathy Griffin: Tired Hooker," Bravo Media greenlit a second season of "Kathy," the weekly prime-time talk show that Jane Fonda deemed "...the weirdest show I've ever done in my life," and had Anderson Cooper asking, "Bitch, what the f-- are you doing?" Each episode features Kathy Griffin and a panel of civilians and celebrities commenting on the week's most talked about moments and no public figure is off limits from Kathy and her crew. Additional celebrity guests from season one included Sharon Osbourne, Chelsea Handler, Whitney Cummings and Jimmy Kimmel. Check out the best moments from "Kathy" here: http://www.bravotv.com/kathy/season-1/photos/best-moments/top-5-moments-of-season-1

"Look, I don't know what the hell's gonna happen in season two of 'Kathy,' I'm still sore from season one," said Griffin. "It's kind of like "not Martha Stewart" meets "Not at all Ellen" meets a lot of negative energy. Last season I had every one on my couch from Jane Fonda to Chelsea Handler to Anderson Cooper to my dog walker. Just sit back and laugh. I'll do all the embarrassing stuff....oh, and I'm nominated for an EMMY"

"Bravo's relationship with Kathy Griffin has outlasted Katie and Tom's, Ashton and Demi's and while we won't be couch jumping, we continue to be in awe of her quick wit, rude humor and spot-on analysis of pop culture and celebrity happenings," said Frances Berwick, President Bravo Media LLC & Style. "The first season of 'Kathy' struck a chord with our educated, upscale viewers with its fresh new approach to not-letting-anyone-get-away with-anything TV."

Kathy's all new original one-hour comedy special "Kathy Griffin: Seaman 1st Class" will premiere on Bravo Thursday, July 26th at 10:00 PM ET/PT. This time the comedian aims her razor sharp wit at Miley Cyrus, Bristol Palin, Anderson Cooper, "The Real Housewives of Orange County" and of course Oprah. Kathy chats about her latest antics at The Grammys, dishes on her most recent run in with Cher and what comedy special would be complete without another letter from prison?

Griffin has had an impressive 14 original comedy specials on since 2005 and won two Emmy's for the network's "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List." Her stand up specials "Kathy Griffin: Tired Hooker (December 2011), "Kathy Griffin: Straight to Hell" (November 2008) and "Kathy Griffin: She'll Cut a Bitch" (April 2009) were nominated for an Emmy in the category Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special.
