“I just found out that my Carnegie Hall show sold out in a day. I’m in shock,” she tweeted Saturday. “For most of the past year I was convinced that my career was over…I have felt moments of despair that I can’t describe in a tweet. Thank you from the bottom of my heart…I am so grateful.”

I just found out that my Carnegie Hall show sold out in a day. I’m in shock. For most of the past year I was convinced that my career was over…I have felt moments of despair that I can’t describe in a tweet. Thank you from the bottom of my heart…I am so grateful.

It’s been nine months since Griffin’s photo holding a fake decapitated President Donald Trump head caused an uproar that threw her life and career in turmoil. Venues cancelled her tour dates, CNN dropped her as co-host of its annual New Year’s Eve broadcast and she became the subject of a Secret Service investigation for “conspiracy to assassinate the president.”

News of Griffin’s comeback made lots of her fans very happy, including a few famous ones. Amber Tamblyn tweeted, “Love you, Kathy,” while Bette Midler went into a little more detail, writing, “Congratulations and welcome back! You were in Show Biz jail longer than the Stanford Rapist was in real jail!”

And there were even a couple of celebs who Griffin acknowledged who reached out to her privately.

“People talk sh*t about @KrisJenner/@KimKardashian (including me in my act) but I will tell you something…in the past year they have shown me a lot of love & given me support when I needed it most,” Griffin tweeted. “And it’s never been for show. (Don’t worry they’re still going to be in my act).”
