Kathy Griffin Plays 'Pharaoh Lady' for Egyptian Themed Shoot

Kathy Griffin poses for an Egyptian themed shoot and plays the role of “Pharaoh Lady” for the cover of a recent November 2015 issue of Adweek.

Here is what the 55-year-old comedian had to share with the mag:

On having Emmys and a Grammy: “My awards are more important than people. That’s going on my tombstone. That’s what we’re about here, babe. Awards and artifice. We love it.”

On wanting to be more than just an A-list name: “I think anybody can be a person. I’d like to be a brand. I’m tired of being a human being. I’m way overdue for my next endorsement, way overdue, because now it’s official. You know what you’re getting. You know what you’re in for. You know what I’m about.”

On how being a shocking comedian is a plus for advertising: “If you look at the Super Bowl ads, advertisers understand that they have to infuse humor. So that’s where I come in.”

On sexism in comedy, and her plans for her future in comedy: “I was on a mission because of the sexism in stand-up comedy to prove that I thought, you know what? I’m just going to win as many awards as I possibly can as a woman, and I’m going to do more and I’m going to write more and I write every word of my specials.”
