    Iliza Shlesinger

    Comedy

    Iliza Shlesinger is an award-winning comedian and multihyphenate actor-writer-producer-author, selling out theatres around the globe with a devoted fanbase who create their Iliza-inspired swag to wear to her shows. She’s currently preparing to launch her post-pandemic Back In Action world tour.
    Iliza currently has five stand up specials streaming on Netflix, including Unveiled, which delves into her journey of getting married and 2018’s Elder Millennial, which is the subject of Iliza Shlesinger: Over & Over, her “fan-u-mentary” giving fans an inside look into her life on tour. Her other specials are War Paint, Freezing Hot, and Confirmed Kills.
    In recent years, Iliza has branched out into acting and will next be seen starring in the Netflix movie Good On Paper, an indie “non-rom-com” she wrote. She recently starred opposite Mark Wahlberg in the #1 Netflix film Spenser Confidential, and had a supporting role in the critically acclaimed indie drama Pieces of a Woman starring Vanessa Kirby. Other credits include, Instant Family, starring Wahlberg and Rose Byrne, and The Iliza Shlesinger Sketch Show, a comedy series she created and starred in for Netflix.
    In March 2020, in response to the pandemic pandemic, she and her husband, Chef/James Beard Award nominated author Noah Galuten, launched Don't Panic Pantry as a way to encourage people to stay at home and flatten the curve. The fun, follow-along at-home cooking show broadcasts live via Iliza’s Instagram and Facebook page and recently surpassed the 200th episode mark. It has been featured on TODAY Show, The Talk, and more.
    Iliza is currently hard at work on her second book All Things Aside (Abrams Books and Blackstone Audio), which recently sold as part of a bidding war. Her first book, Girl Logic: The Genius and the Absurdity (Hachette Book Group) was a subversively funny collection of essays offering her unique perspective on irrational behavior. Hey podcast, AIA: Ask Iliza Anything, is a fan favorite and features Iliza giving out her Dear Abby-esque advice from fan submitted questions. She recently guest hosted Jimmy Kimmel Live and previously hosted her own limited run late night talk show Truth & Iliza on Freeform. Iliza is the only female and youngest comedian to hold the title of NBC's Last Comic Standing.
    Iliza regularly supports a variety of causes including USO, Team Rubicon, Cystic Fibrosis, and more. In 2019, she partnered with Sanae Intoxicants, an L.A. based perfumer, and created “Christmas Mouth,” a limited-edition fragrance to raise money for Best Friends Animal Society.

  • Damon Wayans

    Damon Wayans

    Stand-up

    Known throughout the world for his no-holds-barred comedic genius, Damon Wayans wrapped five seasons of the hit ABC series My Wife and Kid in 2005, which he co-created and executive produced. Currently in syndication worldwide, the series received numerous awards, including the 2002 People’s Choice for Favorite New Television Comedy Series, and Favorite Male Performer in a New Television Series for his portrayal as patriarch Michael Kyle.
    Damon Wayans is most fondly remembered for his three seasons as writer and co-star on the Emmy® Award-winning series In Living Color. There, he created sketch characters like “Homey the Clown,” “Handiman” and outrageously gay film critic Blaine from “Men on Film” household names. His writing for the series earned him two personal Emmy® nominations. Recently, he starred as Roger Murtaugh, in the TV remake of the hit movie franchise, Lethal Weapon for FOX TV. Additional television credits include the half-hour Fox sitcom Damon, in which he starred and executive produced, and the hour-long drama 413 Hope Street, which was nominated for a People’s Choice Award. He served as an executive producer on Waynehead, a Saturday morning animated cartoon for the WB, which featured the voices of his siblings Kim, Marlon and Shawn Wayans.
    On the big screen, Wayans has starred in Spike Lee’s critically acclaimed film Bamboozled. He also starred and executive produced independent film, Harlem Aria. Other feature film credits include starring roles in Major Payne, Blankman and Mo Money, which he also wrote and executive produced, The Great White Hype, Celtic Pride, The Last Boy Scout, Earth Girls are Easy, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, Colors, Punchline, Hollywood Shuffle, Roxanne and Beverly Hills Cop.
    Wayans has also enjoyed tremendous success in stand-up. After starting his career in 1982 touring the comedy club circuit, he landed a role as a featured player on the famed NBC series Saturday Night Live. Wayans went on to star in his own critically acclaimed HBO specials, One Night Stand, The Last Stand and Still Standing.
    In 2006 Damon Wayans created, executive produced and starred in the hilariously comedic sketch show The Underground. In 2008, the comedian announced the debut of “WayOutTV” with his vision to taking "In Living Color" to the Internet. Wayans described the venture as “In Living Color 2.0”, where he would allow viewers to share, rate and leave comments on the sketches.
    Wayans is also a New York Times Bestselling author. In 1999, he penned "Bootleg," a humorous compilation of his observations on family, children, marriage and politics. The book was a tremendous success and quickly made the New York Times Bestseller List. In May of 2010, Damon shows a serious and empathetic side that he fabulously showcases in his debut novel, RED HATS, an utterly extraordinary first novel that weaves inspiration and hope into an original storyline that immediately captivates readers with its powerful take on modern-day life.
