Get your laughs in with Kathy Griffin August 26

Kathy Griffin

You don't want to wind up on the D-List, but you just might find yourself there if you miss the hilarious Kathy Griffin next Friday, August 26, at 8pm in our beautiful outdoor Lilian Fontaine Garden Theatre.

The two-time Emmy and Grammy award-winning comedienne breaks through the entertainment clutter with her universally recognized brand of pull-no-punches comedy. She's appeared in dozens of TV shows (including My Life on the D-List and as a co-host on The View), as well as films and stand-up specials. Her first-ever performance at Montalvo is sure to have you rolling with laughter!

When you purchase your tickets, be sure to add Dining on the Terrace, our elegant pre-concert meal on the front veranda of our historic Villa. The menu for the evening includes a mixed greens salad with grilled peaches, pan seared salmon with roasted sweet corn, and shortcake with vanilla gelato for dessert.

To get your tickets, just click the button below. We hope to see you at the show!
