No matter how polarizing you may find her, this is an unprecedented story in US history. An attempt to decimate an American citizen from the highest levels of government. 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. When the gossip blog TMZ published a photo of Griffin holding a mask that looked like the severed head of President Trump which quickly went global, on May 30, 2017, everything she had worked for in her life vanished overnight and she became the target of the President and the Department of Justice. In her first comedy concert film, Griffin shares 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. Watch this Phoenix rise and have a good laugh while you are doing it!
