Kathy Griffin: Comedian or Stand Up Comic?

I was reading the post Dane Cook is NOT FUNNY. In the comments, it was brought up that there might be a difference in being a comedian and a stand up comic. So, that made me think about Kathy Griffin. Some will say that she is a comedian. Others will say that she is a stand up comic. However, I do know that she has stirred up controversy. What do you think she is? A comedian or a stand up comic?

    I’m pretty sure stand up comic and comedian is the same thing. Either way she’s not funny.

  2. Wow, looks like my post got some attention.
    I googled comedian and the first result I got was from Wikipedia:

    A comedian (comedienne if female) or comic is a person who seeks to entertain an audience, primarily by making them laugh. This might be through jokes or amusing situations, or acting a fool, as in slapstick, or employing prop comedy. A comedian who stands alone and addresses an audience directly is called a stand-up comic.

    WellI thought a few lines her lines were not bad, especially the part about “Not All of them” Didn’t make me laugh out loud, but not bad at all. I digress, Kathy Griffin>Dane Cook.
