Iliza Shlesinger Will Prove Her Comedic Chops in an All-New Stand-Up Special Headed to KC

Iliza is one of today’s leading comedians with a fan base who show their loyalty by creating their own Iliza inspired swag to wear to her shows. Last year she hosted her late night limited run talk show “Truth & Iliza,” on Freeform. In November 2017, she released her first book Girl Logic: The Genius and the Absurdity (Hachette Book Group) a subversively funny collection of essays and observations on a confident woman's approach to friendship, singlehood, and relationships.

Originally from Dallas, Iliza moved to Los Angeles after graduating from Emerson College. She is the only female and youngest comedian to hold the title of NBC's Last Comic Standing. Her debut comedy special, War Paint, was acquired by Netflix and was named one of its Top 10 Albums of 2013. Iliza’s follow-up Netflix specials, Freezing Hot and Confirmed Kills, sealed her title as one of the hottest touring acts in America, with Esquire Magazine listing her as one of the top working comedians today.

Iliza’s stand-up credentials also include headlining the coveted Montreal Just For Laughs Festival and The New York Comedy Festival. As a national headliner, Iliza tours year-round selling out theatres, clubs and colleges. She also participated in the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff's personal USO Tour throughout the Middle East and Europe, as well as Al Roker's Today Show USO Tour in Afghanistan, with Jay Leno and Craig Robinson.

Iliza’s been featured in Elle’s “Women in Comedy” issue two years in a row and her television credits include multiple appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” “The Today Show.” Additionally, her digital scripted series, Forever 31 is currently streaming on Hulu.
