The best part of Kathy Griffin is that she’ll call out all the dickholes in Hollywood and when you see her live, it’s like she’s calling them out just to you. Like you’re a couple of gal pals getting some dippity ’dos at the local salon even if you’re no parts gal. (She loves you gays!!) She’s been doing stand-up since the beginning of time (read: the ’90s), so she’s got a lot of dirt, too. She’s Grammy- and Emmy-nominated, and she’s had a book on the bestseller list, but perhaps her crowning achievement was being called a “bully” by Sarah Palin. Oh, come on, you know you’d add that to your résumé, too. Plus, one of her best friends is Lance Bass. Say whaaat? Yep, she hangs with that pinch-face on the reg. Tickets start at $39.75 and are on sale now at verizontheater.com. The show starts at 8 p.m. Friday at Verizon Theatre (1001 Performance Place, Grand Prairie).
