Kathy Griffin is wading back into the world of comedy nearly one year after a Donald Trump photo scandal derailed her career.

Griffin announced her first USA shows since the gruesome photo, which showed her holding a bloody mask of President Donald Trump's head, was released in May 2017. In fact, her first two shows are set to take place right in "Trump's backyard".

"I'm dipping my toes into touring again", Griffin said, asserting that the president and his supporters would likely prefer she never worked again.

Kathy Griffin will appear in upcoming shows in NY and Washington, she has announced.

Her focus was solid as Williams, with the exception of a few displays of emotion, maintained her cool for much of the night. Venus preceded her younger sister on the stadium court and beat Sorana Cirstea of Romania 6-3, 6-4.

The comic was also scheduled last Thursday for a Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance, but canceled due to what her rep described as "a scheduling conflict".

Kathy Griffin is touring in the States again.

Griffin told Bill Maher she is not "decimated" - despite the wishes of the Trump family.

Finding it hard to book any jobs in the US post-scandal, Griffin embarked on an global comedy tour of 23 countries and 15 cities, where she revealed the extent of her scandal.

She pointedly did not congratulate Ford, and continued to dispute the result. "On June 7th, we can vote to say no to it". The leadership race itself stirred strife and forced party brass to defend their decisions on a number of fronts.

"I did an overseas tour, and I was detained at every single airport", she told Maher.

"Hey Suzie Hardy, I will do for you that which no one did for me after May 30", Griffin tweeted Sunday. She recounted a vile and violent threat that she said was the most common one she received.

Griffin stirred controversy previous year when she posed with a severed head resembling the president. "When you're in that moment, you're at the mercy of the one or two people in that room".

"Donald Trump Jr. goes on "Good Morning America" and goes, "We don't just want to ruin Kathy Griffin's career, we want to decimate her"..."

Regrets? Maher asked, "If you had to do it all over again, I assume you wouldn't take the picture..." "Just kidding! Ten months I waited to do that joke".
