Who is Iliza Shlesinger? Your next comedy hero!

March 25, 2009 by Clark 

US TV audiences have rejoiced as perky comic Iliza Shlesinger has won the reality TV series Last Comic Standing. The show threw 12 comedians together to live in the same house for weeks on end, performing to an audience of LA comedy lovers every night. The public could then vote for who they wanted to leave first, Big Brother style. The overall winner of the series is Iliza Shlesinger, who is now on a live tour in the US with other new comics. But who is she?

Iliza, born in 1983, hails from Dallas and is a graduate of the renowned Emerson college. She is the first female contestant, as well as the youngest, to win the Last Comic Standing competition. Iliza is also the host of The Weakly News online.

She has a list of TV credits to her name, including E! Network, G4, TV Guide’s America’s Next Top Producer, Comics Unleashed, and appeared on the History Channel in the documentary project History of a Joke.

But will we get to see her in the rest of the world? Plans are currently only for the last Comic Standing tour (and indeed the show) to be a US concern, but there are endless people around the world in need of a good laugh. For now it looks like we’re stuck with YouTube clips of our new comedy heroine.
