Kathy Griffin Signs With APA

Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin has jumped over to APA for representation in touring, television and publishing.
Griffin is still reviving her career after she became the target of a huge wave of criticism for posing in a photograph with a replica of Donald Trump’s severed head last year. She had shows canceled, lost her ad campaign with Squatty Potty toilet stools, and was dropped from her annual gig co-hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve show with Anderson Cooper.
She started touring internationally after the incident and returned to touring her home country of the U.S. this year. 
That run included a sold-out show at Shubert Theatre – Boch Center in Boston June 21, which moved 1,459 tickets for a gross of $88,665. Those numbers are very much on par from the last time she performed in Boston, a two-night stand in 2016 with 2,081 tickets moved for $139,558.
She has shows planned throughout the regional South and Midwest in the coming weeks and months. Her next gig is tonight in Miami. 
She made the Guinness Book of World Records in 2013 for writing and starring in 20 TV specials, and she now hosts the late-night talk show “Kathy” and was the star of “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List.”
Her books include “Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin” and “Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z Index.”
Pollstar recently profiled Steve Lassiter of APA Nashville, discussing his career and the cutthroat nature of the agency business.
Agent Troy Lusk moved to APA earlier this year after Circle Talent Agency was acquired by UTA.
The APA family lost two revered members this year, as founder Roger Vorce and Troy Blakely, the company’s longtime managing partner and head of music, both died this year. 
Griffin was previously booked by ICM Partners.
