Griffin, who begins her limited engagement in Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony March 11 at the Belasco Theatre, told Playbill.com, "I would be thrilled to host the Tonys. … I swear to you, if I ever did have that privilege, I wouldn't swear. I don't get those gigs sometimes because I know they really think I honestly can't control myself. But, you know, this year [at] New Year's Eve with Anderson Cooper, I didn't swear. I knew I wasn't going to swear. I would actually … be a good host for the Tonys because I would certainly have them laughing but I wouldn't be scary.
"I will say, though, that if you come see my show, that's gonna be f*ckin' scary, and I'm absolutely gonna swear and offend everybody."
Tickets for Griffin's show are priced $61.50-$121.50 with premium seats available for $196.50 and $226.50; visit Telecharge.com.
The Belasco Theatre is located in Manhattan at 111 West 44th Street.
