"Did you get my twat?" Kathy Griffin asks me when we start our phone interview this past Friday. "I twatted at you."

It takes me a minute to understand that Griffin is talking about a tweet she had just sent me. Before I can even reply, she jumps right in to congratulate me on Texas's choice in governmental representation. I can tell this conversation is going to be one for the record books.
Griffin has brought up Texas for a few reasons. One, she wants to make fun of Ted Cruz and two, she will be here on tour this week. She will be stopping in Austin, then Houston and rounding this mini-tour out in San Antonio, where she will be taping her 20th comedy special for Bravo. This is a big deal for Griffin as once this special is in the can, she will have broken world records. Griffin is on her way to entering the Guinness World Records for "Most Stand-up Specials by a Comedian" passing the "late great George Carlin." At first this title wasn't a part of any calculated move on Griffin's part, but once it seemed like she was headed in this direction, she thought there was no better place to tape the title-making special than Texas.More »
