Bravo has ordered four new stand-up comedy specials with Kathy Griffin, the most in a single year for the comedian and star-executive producer of the network’s Emmy-winning reality series Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List. Since 2005, Griffin has done 8 comedy specials for Bravo, most recently Kathy Griffin: Whores on Crutches. The new one-hour specials will air quarterly in 2011. “I went to Bravo and told them I thought I was being a little too nice in my stand up specials. They agreed… and gave me four more. Let the fur fly,” said Griffin. Following the sixth season of D List over the summer, Griffin said she didn’t want to continue with the docu series. To keep her presence on Bravo, the network decided to expand her portfolio of specials.
