The first two dates will be at New York's Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center, which she labeled as Trump's backyard.

Last month, Griffin hit her first red carpet since the Trump controversy, which cost the comedian her USA tour (she later embarked on a "Laugh Your Head Off" world tour), her high-profile gig at CNN and her friendship with Anderson Cooper.

"I'm dipping my toes into touring again even though the Trumps and nobody wants me to work again", she told Maher.

Griffin added that she had just booked a show at Carnegie Hall in Midtown, as well as one "in Trump's backyard" at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

The 57-year-old comedian made the announcement on Friday during her appearance on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher. She has also appeared on TV and on film numerous times, mainly in supporting roles.

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

After the photo was posted in May 2017, Griffin was investigated by the Secret Service and fired from her annual gig co-hosting CNN's New Year's Eve broadcast alongside Anderson Cooper.

Griffin, who called the controversial photo "distasteful but not illegal", recounted her story tonight in terms both comic and serious.

Asked whether she lost friends over the controversy, Griffin said, "I'm down to three gay guys and you, but I hear you're fluid".

Griffin has slowly been paving her way back into the spotlight. I didn't rape anybody.
