Kathy Griffin is racing to the bottom, competing mostly against herself. But an honorable mention should also go out to Samantha Bee for the feckless see you in tea comment. Kathy, in efforts to get even more attention, which is working I might add, announced she was giving away two tickets for her “comedy tour.”
Because I have zero effs left to give, I’m offering two free tickets to any show on my new comedy tour! Click below to enter, and I’ll even call you myself if you win.

Simple enough. She hasn’t anymore craps to give, so why not boost her audience by tossing a few tickets their way. All for publicity. All for comedy. All for Kathy.
Never letting an opportunity to mock a hack go to waste, Norm Macdonald stepped into the pitch. Knuckle sandwich coming in hot. Slathered in wasabi.
Does second place get 4 tickets? https://t.co/ekulgHtXyE

Third place gets a choice: 6 free tickets OR one flaming bag of dog poop. Pick up either at will call.
I’ll take the dog poop for $1,000, Alex. Let’s make it a true daily double, give me TWO flaming bags of dog poop. Nothing better than a set, am I right?
Kathy Griffin is free to give away all of her tickets. She may be left with no other choice. We’re not mocking her for being “generous” with her tickets. We are mocking her for being terribly unfunny, which isn’t something you add to your LinkedIn if you’re listed as a comedian.
Which Norm Macdonald clearly understands.
