I met Kathy Griffin
Last night I had front row tickets to the Kathy Griffin show at the Flint Center in Cupertino. The tickets were pretty easy to get - I just showed up at the box office just before they opened on the morning tickets went on sale, and grabbed 7 tickets for me and my friends.
The show started off with Kathy running on stage, and her iPhone flying out of her pocket and onto the floor of the stage. So, she went on about some things she didn't like about the iPhone.
I knew someone who knows Kathy personally, so he was able to arrange for us to meet her backstage after the show. It was pretty cool. We told her right away that we were a bunch of Apple engineers, and some of us actually worked on the iPhone, so she took advantage of the situation and got us to show her how to do some stuff on her iPhone. We spent about 20 minutes with her, and she posed for pictures between iPhone lessons.
Before we left, we invited her to our weekly dinner club, and then she said, "Oh, you're those people!" Maybe we'll see her again.
Was she funny?
Oh yeah, I should have mentioned it was a great show. She's always very topical, and that keeps the comedy fresh.
