Suck it, bitches!

Kathy Griffin“She’s so raunchy!” my mom said, when I told her who I was seeing this weekend.

But I don’t care.

I love me some Kathy Griffin.

I’ve been a fan of hers since her NewsRadio days.  I’ve seen most of her HBO specials, and her Emmy-Award-winning series “My Life on the D-List” is REQUIRED viewing when it’s on Bravo.

But I’ve never seen her live– until this weekend.

She’s doing two shows on Saturday at the legendary Chicago Theatre.  I lucked out getting tickets just at the last minute– the 8:00pm show was already sold out, so I got tix for the 10:30 show.

Funny thing is, when I bought the tickets, I saw where they were on the schematic of the theater seating chart and thought that I had front-row balcony tickets.

Even though the tickets read something like “Row U-U” or some crazy thing like that.  I figured maybe they started lettering rows in the middle and went out from there.  Ha.

My tickets are in the last row of the main balcony.

So instead of seeing Kathy like this:

She’ll look more like this:

Unless I remember to bring my opera glasses, in which case she’ll look more like this:

Hey, as long as I can hear her, I’m fine.

So that’ll be my excitement for the weekend.  Hope yours is just as thrilling, if not more.
