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, 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 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.
