Laughter is a great way to break the ice, which is why the all-clown expedition to Antarctica was never heard from again. Chuckle on steady ground with this GrouponLive deal to see Kathy Griffin at Fox Theatre Detroit. For $29, you get one G-Pass for seating in rows AA–MM of section F1 or F6, rows GG–SS of section F2 or F5, or rows B–K of section GA1, GA2, GA5, or GA6 on Friday, November 9, at 8 p.m. (up to a $59.30 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
The resumé of actress and comedian Kathy Griffin sparkles with awards and honors. Across a decades-long career, she has garnered two Emmys for her Bravo show My Life on the D-List, four Grammy nominations for her comedy albums, countless standup specials, and performances on television shows such as Suddenly Susan. A longtime Los Angeles resident and alumna of famed improv group The Groundlings, Griffin perches on the edge of the Hollywood in-crowd, allowing her to skewer stars' foibles and excesses using firsthand observations and a scandalously wicked sense of humor.
She's as hardworking as she is gleefully loudmouthed, working as fast as the cable-news cycle spins to generate new material—last year alone, she created four standup specials for Bravo and debuted a new talk show, Kathy. Live onstage, she told Creative Loafing Atlanta, "I can give the behind-the-scenes stuff from the Kathy show, the stuff Bravo won't let me talk about . . . My show is highly improvisational and I basically do standup until I get arrested."
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
Fox Theatre, originally opened in 1929, has long been established as a venue for legendary performances, earning induction into the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. Domed entryways, walls lined with pastoral murals, intricate chandeliers, and a palette of brilliant gold and crimson hint at the venue's Moorish influences, which eclectically clash with the ordered lines of its Gothic exterior.
