I bought Kathy Griffin’s autobiography on Kindle at the recommendation of Jen. I enjoy her comedy and thought her book would be a fun read. I was not disappointed.
I thought Unofficial Book Club Selection by Kathy Griffin was an entertaining tell-all book. Kathy (yeah I wish she was my friend so I’m going to use her first name) talks about her family, starting out, Groundlings, tv, calls people out. It’s just like her show. I think it’s easy for people to dismiss Kathy Griffin as a loudmouth who talks about celebrities and makes jokes. This autobio shows a different side of her; you can tell she’s a caring person, even if her stand-up gets her in trouble. (See Dakota Fanning rehab joke.)
This was a pretty easy read. It’s like having a conversation with Kathy, only on paper and one-sided. Once I finished, I got the feeling that she still had a lot more to say, and I can’t wait to read about it!
