    Kathy Griffin is getting ready for the holidays in her own special way.

    "Suckin' It For The Holidays," the scathing new comedy CD from the stand-up provocateur, is in stores today.

    Recorded live during Kathy's sold-out show at the Borgota Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey on June 6, 2009, the "Suckin' It For The Holidays" CD includes a full-color booklet featuring Kathy Griffin and Santa Claus in a winter wonderland.

    "[This]is my holiday gift to Grammy voters," Griffin said. "It gives them a second chance to do the right thing this year at Best Comedy Album time. The Emmys on my mantle are dying to hang out with a real Grammy."

    A digital-only edition of the album was released in late August in advance of the Grammy eligibility cut-off date.

    On this new album, Griffin provides iconoclastic takes on Katie Couric, Maya Angelou, Suze Orman, Justin Timberlake, T.I., Donald Trump, 'The Real Housewives,' Heidi and Spencer, her own mother and much more.

    "Suckin' It For The Holidays" is Griffin's follow-up to 2008's "For Your Consideration," which earned her Best Comedy Album Grammy nomination. Kathy became the first female comedian ever to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top Comedy Albums chart.
