We have been big fans of Iliza Shlesinger for-ev-er. Her ability to find humor to connect people around important topics, to stay relevant and inclusive, and to make audiences laugh show after show, is so inspiring. Iliza has been a comedian for over a decade now, but since winning Season 6 of Last Comic Standing, she has truly been unstoppable and ever-evolving. With four Netflix comedy specials, a co-star in her first movie out next year, her 5th special on the horizon, and material that is vulnerable, empowering, and hilarious, Iliza is making people laugh and think. . We talk about what it’s like to be recognized in public, positive and negative feedback from society, and what it’s like to be a powerhouse woman in comedy. With Iliza working on a new movie, we also take a minute to laugh over our fake Boston accents!
It’s so refreshing to watch Iliza perform. Whether she’s in character as a gazelle or herself, there is truth in both. You can tell she has been herself since day one. Iliza is playful, unbelievably smart, and has worked hard on her way to the top.
