Kathy Griffin says she can't get work, blames 'older white guys'
The comedian lashed out at a male news anchor who questioned her claim

Comedian Kathy Griffin claims she can't get work these days, and says "older white guys" are the reason why.

Griffin went on KTLA-TV to promote her new film, "Kathy Griffin: A Hell of A Story," which tells her perspective of the fallout after she released a picture showing her holding a fake rendition of President Donald Trump's head, decapitated.

Three of the four anchors on set who were listening to Griffin's aggrandizement of herself mostly sat in silence, but when the comedian claimed she couldn't get work because she is a "58-year-old female in comedy," KTLA veteran Mark Kriski interrupted and said, "I think there's a lot of 58-year-old comedians that are working out there."

"Are ya?" Griffin responded, before challenging him to "name five women."

Griffin noted that he's "not into the comedy thing," before Griffin asked her interviewer, "What is this guy? What's with the new guy?" Griffin went on the say, "Look, the point is, it's a male dominated field, which, I really don't want to hear your take on that," directing her ire back at Kriski.

The comedian addressed the camera again, and said (while pointing at Kristi), "Working in a male dominated field, is something where I deal with that sort of thing every day, so I spend most of my day trying to talk to older white guys and explain 'I just want to do what I do.'"

Here is the interview in its entirety. The exchange with Kriski begins around the 3:55 mark:

It's a helluva stretch calling Kathy Griffin a "comedian".

Whatever you think of them, they are still working. And so Griffin was wrong. It's not that she's old. It's that nobody wants to see her try to be funny--or wants to see her period.

Ya.. I was just rattling off names of working female comedians. I would have thrown in Lily Tomlin but I'm not sure if she's still in the business.

Probably has something to do with the decapitated White guy's head you were holding up.

She and Hillary should hit the road as a comedy duo wailing about how it's the fault of the white men in this country that they can't have what they want...

I had to look up her history in show business to figure out why I had never heard of her before she displayed that severed prop head of Trump. It is because nearly all of her show business jobs were on television shows I have never watched or gave up watching a long time ago because I did not find them entertaining. She is a mediocrity who thinks her failure makes her a victim.
