Kathy Griffin? The kooky comic was spotted at L2 on Friday night. Griffin, who had just wrapped a performance at the Kennedy Center, made a surprise appearance at the Georgetown club to wish CNN’s Jessica Yellin a happy 40th birthday and hang with her pals and parents-to-be, CNN’s John King and Dana Bash. Other guests at Yellin’s birthday bash included NYT’s Jeff Zeleny, TIME’s Jay Newton-Small, Doug Heye, NRSC’s Brian Walsh, Jack and Susanna Quinn, Mark Cuban, Kimball Stroud, Treasury spokesman Mark Paustenbach, CNN’s Brianna Keilar, NYT’s Carl Hulse, HuffPo’s Peter Cherukuri and SKDK’s Emily Lenzner, NBC’s Savannah Guthrie and GPG’s Mike Feldman, NYT’s Mark Leibovich, NBC’s Betsy Fischer and Politico’s Jonathan Martin, W.H. Dep. Social Secretary Ebs Burnough and Wolf Blitzer who graciously posed for pictures with a posse of L2 cocktails waitresses.

Comedian Kathy Griffin sat down with CNN’s Larry King this past weekend and spoke on a variety of topics including reminiscing about her March visit to Capitol Hill.
“I learned a lot about how things work on the Hill,” Griffin told the host. “I’m doing a lot to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. I did get in a little trouble with a woman called [Rep.] Michele Bachman [R-Minn.]. I sort of got kicked out of my first Senate hearing because I said something to [Sen.] Saxby Chambliss [R-Ga.] she didn’t like.”
(As you’ll note, Griffin purposely referred to Chambliss as a “she.”)
If we couldn’t have Chelsea Handler, couldn’t her handlers at least have given us her petite sidekick Chuy Bravo? The nerve. E!’s late night talk show host was in town this past weekend for a performance at DAR Constitution Hall and for a book signing at Borders for her new tome with the ever classy title, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang. Our sources tell us Borders PR set up media interviews only to have them canceled by Handler’s handlers. Comedian Kathy Griffin was far more accessible to D.C. media during her recent visit, with handlers treating press to a variety of interviews.
As reporters know, sometimes handlers are the worst part of the show.
