Comedian Kathy Griffin said she is dipping her toes into touring for the first time since she faced intense backlash for posting a photo with a fake decapitated head resembling President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump: I hope voters pay attention to Dem tactics amid Kavanaugh fight South Korea leader: North Korea agrees to take steps toward denuclearization Graham calls handling of Kavanaugh allegations 'a drive-by shooting' MORE last year. 

“I’m dipping my toes into touring again even though the Trumps and nobody wants me to work again," said on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" on Friday. 

Her first shows are scheduled for New York City's Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. 

Griffin joked during the interview that the Washington show was in Trump's backyard. 


Griffin stirred controversy last year when she posed with a severed head resembling the president. 

She apologized for the photo, saying she went “too far” and that she started getting "constant" death threats.

The comedian said during a press conference last year that Trump bullied her over the photo, and accused the first family of "personally trying to ruin [her] life forever."

Trump addressed the photo on Twitter, saying she should be ashamed of herself. 

Griffin had multiple shows canceled and was fired from her position as a host of CNN's New Year's Eve coverage in the aftermath.

Griffin was also interviewed by the Secret Service over the incident last year.  

“I am no longer sorry," Griffin said in August. "The whole outrage was B.S., the whole thing got so blown out of proportion and I lost everybody."
