Dating show excused
People on dating shows don’t wanna know that you’re a virgin.
Iliza Shlesinger is an absolute monster on stage, unrivaled by any working female comedian out there, just ask her fans.
But will men will find it in their hearts to be equally open-minded?
Celebuzz dives in to find out what makes this show tick — plus you can take a peek at some of tonight’s male contestants in our gallery. Can you explain the premise of the show and how it works? Two single guys (or girls) sit in a house and members of the opposite sex come to the front door and say, into the security camera, why they should be let in.
She is the only female and youngest comedian to hold the title of NBC' S Last Comic Standing.
Most recently she was the host of CBS's syndicated comedy dating show Excused, in which she filmed 230 episodes.
Iliza's TV credits include her own half-hour Comedy Central Presents special, as well as NBC' S Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, E!
"I love and hate that my stand-up is what brought us together," she says. Shlesinger's act is likeably hip, a mix of observational humor and riffs on the eternal politics between men and women.
"Sometimes I don't tell him about auditions because I'll get calls every day for the next week from him: So! Like so: "It's so hacky for a woman to get onstage and just bash men," Shlesinger says, after insisting that she can smell insecurity on those who try to pick her up "at least a mile away." And yet, she is not a woman who ingratiates herself with men by bashing her own sex, either. "Let me rephrase that: I hate other women and men — people in general can be annoying — but I've never disliked a woman for being beautiful."Very generous of her.
She is currently in development for her own late night talk show pilot and when she's not entertaining crowds on the road she can be found tearin' it up in the gym and fawning over her dog, Blanche.
