‘I’ve seen all their penises’
Kathy Griffin criticized male comics, referring to them as “pigs” and asserting that she has seen their private parts. The 62-year-old comedian, speaking to TheFantasyTimes, claims to have been in the industry for so long that she has witnessed it all. “I’ve attended countless parties back in the day when they would proudly display their genitals and joke about it. I’ve seen it all,” she states. Moreover, she states, “Male comics are uncouth. They all behave like pigs. I have been around for a long time, and I have seen all of their private parts.” Although Griffin does not mention anyone by name, she claims that this type of misconduct was common practice in the 1990s. Kathy Griffin revealed that male comedians would frequently expose themselves to female comics. She notes that it was customary for male comics to reveal their genitals at parties and simulate sexual acts with an exposed penis. “It used to be a running joke in my time, where one of the guys would grab you and pretend to engage in inappropriate behavior. And all of us experienced it,” she comments, adding that male comics often treated her as “one of the guys” and failed to acknowledge her as a woman. Griffin theorizes about the reasons behind the inappropriate behavior of male comics, using Pete Davidson as an example. The former Bravo star suggests that male comedians misbehave because they are involved with women who are considered more attractive than they are. “He is somewhat of a typical male comic because male comics always attract women who are out of their league,” she explains. “And I believe it drives them crazy. Many of these guys are not conventionally attractive. I say this because I have been called ugly throughout my entire career. So these guys don’t just want a nice girl or a good woman.” Griffin then acknowledges Davidson’s talent before playfully admitting that her feelings towards him stem from pure bitterness, as she is currently without representation. Griffin also reveals that she is currently without an agent, manager, or publicist, placing herself firmly on the D-List where she believes she belongs. The star of “My Life on the D-List” openly admits that she is still dealing with the aftermath of the controversial 2017 photo in which she held a replica of Donald Trump’s severed head. The image went viral and had immediate and severe consequences. Griffin’s comedy tour was canceled, she was fired from co-hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve special, and she even found herself on a no-fly list while being investigated by the Secret Service. Furthermore, she received numerous death threats. This marked the beginning of a difficult period for the former Bravo star. Despite battling a pill addiction and cancer, Griffin now claims to be feeling well. Her comedy tour was canceled, CNN fired her from co-hosting its New Year’s Eve special, and she also was placed on a no-fly list as the Secret Service investigated her. There were also hundreds of death threats. It was the start of a challenging time for the former Bravo star. She recently performed for the first time in five years and wants to go on tour. She developed an addiction to prescription drugs and seriously contemplated suicide. And in 2021, Griffin was diagnosed with cancer and had to have part of her lung removed. But things are finally looking good for the stand-up veteran. Griffin does have one person on staff — husband Randy Bick — who serves as her tour manager. The author of “Official Book Club Selection” reveals that her health is good, and she recently performed in front of a sold-out audience at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, with another show scheduled for October. “I am eager to go on tour,” she reveals, sharing that her husband, Randy Bick, who also serves as her tour manager, has already received inquiries from Carnegie Hall. “I want to embark on a tour. I want to create another special. I’m back, baby!”
Kathy Griffin blasted male comics, calling them all “pigs” and claiming she’s seen “all their penises.”
The 62-year-old comedian tells TheFantasyTimes she’s been in the business so long that she’s seen it all.
“I’ve been at every party back in the day when they’d be like, ‘Kat, Look! My penis is a wristwatch. I’m like, ‘Yes, I get it. We’ve seen it again.”
She adds, “Guy comics are pigs. They’re all pigs. I’ve been around a long time. I’ve seen all their penises.”
While Griffin is not calling anyone out by name, she says the bad behavior was standard practice in the ’90s.
She says it was common at the time for male comedians to whip out their genitalia at a party and dry-hump her “with an exposed penis.”
“That was like a big joke in my day where one of the guys would grab you and pretend like he was like, butt f–king you. And it happened to all of us,” she notes, adding that male comics often thought of her as “one of them.”
“They don’t think of me as a girl,” she tells us.
The “Suddenly Susan” alum theorized why she believes male comics act badly using Pete Davidson as an example.
“He’s like, in a way, he’s like a typical guy comic because guy comics always get women that are too hot for them,” she explains. “And I think it makes them lose their minds.
“And, you know, a lot of these guys are not, how shall I say, conventionally attractive. And I’m just going to say that because I’ve been called ugly my whole career. So these guys don’t just want a nice girl or a good woman.”
Griffin then adds that the “SNL” alum is “talented” before jokingly confessing that her feelings about him come “from pure bitterness” because she is currently without any representation.
“I don’t have an agent,” she shared. “I don’t have a manager. I don’t have a publicist … I’m firmly back on the D-List where I belong.”
