The cast of America’s favorite musical television show, Glee, are warming up their vocals to welcome comedian Kathy Griffin as a guest on their show.

Griffin will play Tammy Jean, “a home-schooling Tea Party Canidate,” a future judge for the William McKinley high school regionals, according to OnTheRedCarpet.com.

Griffin is definitely not the kind of comic who stays out of the spotlight recently she has made headlines for her jokes about politicians like Sarah Palin. She is also preparing for her Broadway stand-up comedy show, Kathy Griffin Wants A Tony.
