Groundbreaking women in American comedy

There are only three women who have ever won Grammy awards for comedy albums, and Kathy Griffin is one of them. (She's in a great company; the other two are Whoopi Goldberg and Lily Tomlin.) From the stage to the screen, Kathy Griffin's voice has become one of the most recognizable of the past two decades. She has been adaptable in a changing industry, shifting from sitcom to reality TV with her award-winning "My Life on the D-List," and enduringly unapologetic about her sense of humor and her activism.
