Kathy Griffin has survived the decapitated Donald Trump photo scandal, and she's back on the road with the Laugh Your Head Off tour. That's right: The comedian who spent a good chunk of last year being contrite is sticking her finger into old wounds and making orange-head jokes. And she promises she will be as cutting to the president as ever.

“Donald Trump will not survive the live and hilarious indictment I will be bringing down on his orange head. Did I say head?” Griffin said in a statement.

"You’re gonna get the whole story," she added. "We will talk about THE photo that sparked a conversation around the world, how my mom Maggie still watches Fox News and thinks I might be in ISIS, and hell, I’ll even walk you through my interrogation by the feds. You’re not gonna get that story anywhere else! Oh, and did I mention that my next door neighbors during this whole ordeal are none other than Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye Kardashian-West?”

The Denver show will take place on August 22 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in the Denver Performing Arts Complex.
