Wendy Liebman has made a career out of making late night audiences laugh.
From Carson and Leno to Letterman, Kimmel, Ferguson, and Fallon, Liebman is an icon for stand-up success, even winning the American Comedy Award for best female comedian. Born in New York, Wendy Liebman went to college to become a psychologist but found her true passion while taking a night school classed called "How to Be a Stand-Up Comedian." Wendy started her stand-up career in Boston and has been performing throughout the U.S. and Canada ever since. She's been featured on late night talk shows, HBO, Showtime and Comedy Central. At age 42, she got married and took her career off the fast track to help raise her husband's sons (tons of laundry!). Now that her boys are a little older, she's back on the road and headlining in clubs. And we’re glad she is!
**The best way to get inside Cathy Ladman's head is to see her live.
As one of the country's top comedians, Ladman's show is a self-probing vehicle which draws laughter from exposing personal neuroses. She has not only appeared on "The Tonight Show" nine times, but was also the only female comic to appear on the last two of Johnny Carson’s "Tonight Show Anniversary" shows. She’s made four appearances, thus far, on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," did her own HBO "One Night Stand" comedy special, and was awarded the American Comedy Award for Best Female Stand Up Comic. A native New Yorker, now living in Los Angeles, Cathy is an acclaimed television and film actor. Her film credits include “Charlie Wilson’s War,” “The Aristocrats,” and "White Oleander.” Her TV appearances include “Mad Men,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” and "Everybody Loves Raymond." She's done several TV pilots, including "Caroline in the City," in which she had a recurring role, and a bunch of others that barely saw the light of day (or night). She also appeared regularly on ABC's "Politically Incorrect" and Comedy Central's "Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist."
