Kathy Griffin has had a rough couple of years after her infamous Trump-beeading photo, and she’s sharing the journey in a new concert film, “Kathy Griffin: A Hell of a Story”.
As Entertainment Weekly reports, the standup veteran tackles the controversy onstage in her first-ever comedy concert film.
“No matter how polarizing you may find her, this is an unprecedented story in U.S. history. An attempt to decimate an American citizen from the highest levels of government,” reads the press release for the film.
“From losing an entire career, receiving death threats, being the subject of a federal investigation, it only took Kathy Griffin one afternoon to learn the impact one photo could have to ignite a continuous smear campaign,” the release continues, adding that the 58-year-old comedian will share “the scary and hilarious behind-the-scenes stories of her fight to stand up for her First Amendment rights. From Trump to celebrities, no person or topic is off limits.”
The film will make its debut at the SXSW festival, held in Austin, Texas, from March 8-17, where Griffin herself will be on hand to host the world premiere.
