KATHY GRIFFIN SERVES UP CELEBRITY DIRT IN BRAVO'S ONE HOUR STAND-UP COMEDY SPECIAL 'KATHY GRIFFIN: STRONG BLACK WOMAN'

ONE-HOUR SPECIAL PREMIERES TUESDAY, MAY 9 AT 9:00 PM ET/PT ON BRAVO

NEW YORK -- April 11, 2006 -- Kathy Griffin takes the stage once again for her all-new, laugh-out-loud Bravo stand-up special "Kathy Griffin: Strong Black Woman." In this one-hour comedy roast, Kathy takes no prisoners when it comes to revealing Hollywood's juiciest secrets and red carpet blunders, and this time everyone from Paula Abdul to Dakota Fanning is fair game. "Kathy Griffin: Strong Black Woman" premieres Tuesday, May 9 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on Bravo.

"This special is yet another hilarious and surreal account of D-list celebrity survival in a business that Kathy knows all too well," said Frances Berwick, Senior Vice President, Programming and Production, Bravo. "Kathy brings her outrageous stories to the stage to reveal her own vulnerabilities in Hollywood as well as her unbelievable encounters with some of the most well-recognized Hollywood names today. This helps to fill the D-List void before the launch of her second season of 'My Life on the D List' on Bravo this summer."

"Kathy Griffin: Strong Black Woman" features an unapologetic Kathy, who refuses to curb her political incorrectness in a hilariously entertaining performance. Find out why Kathy was stroking Celine Dion's hair in a backstage greenroom, the ongoing battle against Steven Spielberg and Dakota Fanning, and the real reason why Paula Abdul is always running late for red carpet events. Grab your best gay and tune in to everyone's favorite D-lister to hear for yourself what everyone will be gossiping about the next day.

"Kathy Griffin: Strong Black Woman" is produced by Emmy-winning Production Partners Inc. in association with Bravo. Production Partners Inc. has produced a number of Bravo specials including "Kathy Griffin: The D-list," "Kathy Griffin Is...Not Nicole Kidman" as well as HBO's "Chris Rock: Bigger & Blacker" and "Curb your Enthusiasm."
