Divorce Comedy: 8 Comedians Poke Fun At Their Splits (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Comedians often use events in their personal lives as fodder for their stand-up material, and divorce is no exception. George Lopez joked about his divorce in an interview with Camille Grammer, Kathy Griffin poked fun at hers in her 2009 memoir, and comedian John Cleese even went on an 'Alimony Tour' to fund his divorce settlement. "I'm here, my friends, because frankly I need the money," he told audiences in Norway.

All of which begs the question--can divorce be funny? These eight stand-up comics think so. Watch their #divorcehumor and let us know in the comments and on Twitter.
