In a statement, the every-modest Griffin referred to herself jokingly as the “Yeezus of stand-up comedy” and a “comedic god.”

She later came back down to earth with the following: “Look folks, I hope you laugh a lot at this special. I had a blast making it and I’m truly honored to have been inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records.”

The special was shot before a sold-out audience at San Antonio’s Majestic Theatre. In it, she does her usual tackling of the day’s news, politics and celebrities. This time, she goes after Miley Cyrus and twerking, Texas governor Rick Perry, Justin Bieber and returns with new stories about her 93-year-old mother, Maggie.
