Kathy Griffin, a two-time Emmy winner, New York Times best-selling author and four-time Grammy nominee returns to the Newport Comedy Series at the Newport Hyatt after a seven-year absence. Her performance in the 2008 Series before a sellout crowd had the Newport audience rolling in the aisles!

TWO SHOWS: Friday, August 21st at 7:00pm and 9:30pm.

Kathy did an interview with our friends over at Lite 105 where she calls the Rhode Island accent adorable and says her three priorities in Newport are: 1) Entertaining the audience 2) Offending the audience (it’s not a good show until there is a walkout) and 3) Good food!
