Iliza Shlesinger

On May 2nd, comedian Iliza achieved a lifelong goal when she launched "Truth & Iliza," her very own late night talk show on Freeform (formerly ABC Family). The self styled talk show is a cross between social commentary, politics, pop culture and Iliza's specific brand of feminism. In November 2017, she'll publish her first book "Girl Logic" through Weinstein Books.

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 one-hour comedy special, War Paint, reached #1 on the iTunes charts and was named one of its Top 10 Albums of 2013. Iliza's follow-up, Freezing Hot, a Netflix Original Comedy Special, 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.

In September, 2016, Iliza premiered her latest Netflix special, Confirmed Kills, which finds the comedian in top form, tackling poignant topics while not trading on laughs. She recently wrapped up her first 15 city national theatre tour with "Iliza: The Confirmed Kills Tour."

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 was recently feature in Elle's "Women in Comedy" issue 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 ABCd and Hulu and has already been picked up for a second season.

Iliza lives in Los Angeles where she spends time making up songs and nicknames for her dog Blanche.
