WCW: Iliza Shlesinger

I like having Wednesdays free for a good Woman Crush Wednesday because there are a lot of awesome ladies out there that I like to talk about.  Today’s WCW is actually relevant at this point in time!

Iliza Shlesinger is a comedian who holds the distinctions of being both the first woman and the youngest person to win NBC’s Last Comic Standing.  She’s also a fellow Emerson alumni!  Her first comedy special War Paint is available on Netflix now!

War Paint is how I fell in love with Iliza, off of a friend’s recommendation. “She does this thing where she sounds like a goat,” my friend said as she explained her hilarious girls going out bit, and I’m glad I didn’t let this deter me.  I actually loved the goat sound while watching.  You’ll definitely know what I’m talking about if you watch the above clip.

Iliza has recently appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and is touring now.  I highly recommend War Paint.  If you love it too, Iliza’s new comedy special Freezing Hot hits Netflix this Friday!  I, for one, cannot wait.

Do you like stand-up?  Recommend me some comedians, preferably whose work I can stream on Netflix!
