Iliza Shlesinger is the season 6 winner of Last Comic Standing. She’s got her own Comedy Central Presents special. She’s host of a hilarious dating show called Excused, has an internet show called The Weakly News, and she’s a touring comic. Recently, Iliza has been on Jimmy Fallon and The Rachael Ray Show.
I love Iliza because she’s a super smart, and wonderfully talented lady. It also doesn’t hurt that she always has me in stitches. She’s a lady on her game. She also has a dog named Blanche that she sneaks onto airplanes. What’s not to love about that? On this episode of We’re About to be Friends, Iliza and I talk about the comedy business, nerves, weird dad jokes, and fried olives.
