Meet the Winners in our Kathy Griffin Ticket Contest

By L.K. Regan

We're excited to announce that we have winners in our Kathy Griffin ticket contest! We're giving two lucky members tickets to see Kathy live and in concert on either September 18th or September 19th in San Francisco. We drew our winners at random, and asked them to send us a picture and tell us a little about their reaction.

We were thrilled with the overwhelming response to our Kathy Griffin ticket contest. We drew two winners at random, and gave each of them a pair tickets to one of two shows in San Francisco in September. Our first winner was mranderson. He'll be attending the Sunday, September 19 show. Here he is, in the virtual flesh:



We asked him how he felt about winning. His response: "'Eh... um...what?' was about all I could say, literally out loud, at my office desk. I am at a complete loss for words. My friend and I get together religiously to watch her show each week. I have never been to a comic show, in fact not even a concert before. So when I saw that the contest was for tickets to see Kathy Griffin, I just had to give it a chance. Nothing to lose, right? To actually have been chosen is quite a blessing, and I am looking forward to a fantastic September weekend spent in San Fran!"

Our second winner was will_thomas. We asked him what drew him to the contest, and he said, "The Irish-Catholic satire, the socially awkward situational comedy, and the uproarious accounts of unwieldy run-ins with A-List celebs...what is not to love?! And who can forget the deliciously delivered vulgarities? Pure genius that proves that she's real, that she's boisterous, and that she's a riot. She is the queen of comedy in my book."

Here's a pic of will_thomas—who said we could mention that he's looking for a date to the September 18th show, and RJ members are welcome to message him if interested in going:



Be aware of what you're in for, though. This guy's got a plan: "Y'all, when Kathy Griffin comes on stage and asks, as she always does, 'Where my gays at?! Where my gays at?!' I'll be there. In person. Screaming, 'OMGHERE!'"

Congrats to our winners, and thanks to everyone who entered the contest!
