Who is Kathy Griffin’s husband Randy Bick?
Since 2012, Griffin, 61, has been in a relationship with marketing executive Randy Bick.
In November 2018, the two split for five months before reconciling in April 2019.
Griffin and Bick decided to tie the knot at her California home on January 1, 2020, in a ceremony officiated by comedian Lily Tomlin.
The 61-year-old comedian posted a video of herself alongside Bick on New Year’s Eve in which the two told her followers that they were planning to get married in the early hours of 2020.
“Happy New Year — and, surprise! We’re getting married!” the couple said together.
“Tonight, after midnight,” Griffin said, as Bick added: “She said yes.”
A couple of hours after midnight, she posted an update, writing: “The entire ceremony was just under 14 minutes but I have to give you guys the uncut first 75 seconds.
“LOVE IT! We promised you atypical. We are in love and we cannot stop laughing.”

The tweet included a short video of the first few moments of the ceremony, showing Tomlin officiating inside Griffin and Bick’s home.
“What was supposed to be a shallow, ‘toot it and boot it’ one-night stand has grown and flourished into something far more meaningful,” Tomlin began.
“They stayed together. Then they couldn’t stay away from one another.”
Griffin wore a shiny, white dress with short sleeves with a black ribbon around the waist.
At the time of their wedding, Griffin tweeted that she had worn the same dress on their first formal date, in 2011, and that Bick had chosen that particular gown for the ceremony.
“I asked Randy to pick out which ever one of my long dresses was his favorite for any reason. He picked out this dress and showed me this photo [of their first date]. Romance is hotttt again,” she tweeted.
Before her marriage of Bick, Griffin was married to Matt Moline from 2001 to 2006; he appeared on her reality show, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List.

Griffin continued: “I should be up and running around as usual in a month or less. It’s been a helluva four years, trying to get back to work, making you guys laugh, and entertaining you, but I’m gonna be just fine.
“Of course I’m fully vaccinated for Covid. The consequences for being unvaccinated would have been even more serious.
“Please stay up to date on your medical checkups. It’ll save your life. XXOO, KG,” she closed.
A few months later on December 1, 2021 Griffin revealed that she is “officially cancer free,” on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.
“I’m cancer free,” Griffin told the studio audience as they cheered and applauded the positive news.
The comedian had a successful surgery of her lung in order to remove the cancer.
She began the interview explaining why her voice sounded drastically different than it usually does.
When she had her surgery in August 2021, the medical team had to use an intubation tube and it is temporarily effecting her vocal cords, thus altering her voice.
“So now I’m like Minnie Mouse meets Marilyn Monroe,” Griffin joked.
