Student Union Activities brings ‘D-list’ celebrity Kathy Griffin to KU

LAWRENCE — As part of Homecoming Week events at the University of Kansas, comedian Kathy Griffin will perform at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 3, at the Lied Center.

Griffin will replace Darrell Hammond of “Saturday Night Live,” who was originally scheduled for the event, sponsored by the university’s Student Union Activities. Hammond was forced to cancel because of his “Saturday Night Live” production schedule.

Griffin is best known for her Emmy-nominated show “Kathy Griffin: Life on the D-List.” She previously co-starred for four years on the NBC show “Suddenly Susan” and had recurring roles on “Seinfeld” and “The Simpsons.” She has hosted several stand-up specials, including “Kathy Griffin ... Is Not Nicole Kidman” and “Strong Black Woman.”

Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 5, SUA Preferred Student Card holders can purchase tickets for $3. All KU students can purchase $5 tickets beginning Thursday, Sept. 7. Tickets will go on sale to the public Monday, Sept. 11, at a cost of $12 each. Tickets are available at the SUA Box Office, Level 4 in the Kansas Union, and at the door until seats are sold out.

For more information, contact SUA at (785) 864-SHOW. Homecoming Week is Oct. 1-7.
