The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Kathy Griffin brings her comedy act to Las Vegas in July

Celebrity zingers are sure to fly when Kathy Griffin appears at the Mirage

Kathy Griffin has a knack for making fun of herself. She did it so well that she landed her own reality show on Bravo, “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List,” where for six seasons she poked fun at being a minor celebrity in Hollywood.

She brings that same fiery and sometimes controversial humor to her stand-up show, coming to the Mirage on Friday, July 3.

The Chicago native, who says she’s been influenced by Don Rickles and Joan Rivers, got her start doing improv, and then landed a role on the ’90s sitcom “Suddenly Susan” with Brooke Shields.

She won two Emmy Awards for her reality show and even wrote a New York Times best-selling book, “Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin.”

Now she’s the newest commentator on E! News’ “Fashion Police.”

Celebrities are another favorite Griffin target. Over the years, she’s been banned, and then unbanned, from CNN and "The View," where she has appeared as a co-host.

Tickets start at $59.99.

Tickets: Mirage, 702-792-7777
