This week's opening stand-up salvo involves a story about Kathy Griffin's mom watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians, a show that manages to be too trashy and pathetic even for me. And while it's a funny story, nothing will top my Grandpa watching Sex and the City, so let's move on.
Kathy gathers Team Griffin for a company meeting, at which point she informs them that she signed the three of them up to teach a class at the Learning Annex on how to be a celebrity assistant. The enthusiasm is noticeably absent, even given Tom and Jessica's usual state of catatonia. The Learning Annex people even misspelled Tom as "Tim" on their brochure, and the best reaction he can give is a weary rubbing of his eyes. I guess all that nonstop masturbating can really sap your energy, but what's Jess's excuse? Tiffany, of course, giggles her way through the entire meeting, particularly when Kathy and Jess re-enact the moment they decided Jess needed an assistant. Nobody's laughing when they find out the seminar is three hours long, though. Well, nobody but Kathy. Oh, and it's in two days. Go team!
