Another reviewer summed up this comedy special as Kathy Griffin standing on stage, dropping names, making gossip comments, and being generally boring. Her "jokes" are nothing but gossip, this reviewer says.
That is more or less accurate. I suppose everyone has to have their niche, and Griffin's niche is talking about other (better) celebrities. Sometimes this works, and sometimes it does not. Making cracks about famous people is usually good for a laugh, but sometimes the jokes here just are not really jokes at all, but observations.
The subject matter also makes the special dated. Already today (2013) the comments on Taylor Swift are dated and therefore not very funny. A large segment is concerning Cher, who I was not aware was still a big deal for anyone... but, who knows?
