Last Sex Symbol Standing

Actually, Texas comic’s oeuvre is more than meets the eye

It’s no joke that great, lusty swaths of the male demographic find Iliza Shlesinger visually appealing. Yet there are reasons aplenty the Dallas native was crowned the sixth-season winner of NBC’s reality contest Last Comic Standing, and they aren’t merely her blonde tresses, her sultry baby blues, and her perfect figure. Shlesinger’s no-nonsense outlook, twisty-turns of detail and character, and deliberate flipping of industry-wide stereotyping characterize a performer who’s just as comedically appealing. Rest assured, the big win was no fluke – the ComedySportz vet and 2007 victor of MySpace ’s “So You Think You’re Funny” contest also boasts such résumé-boosters as the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, The Soup, Chelsea Lately, Comics Unleashed, and’s The Weakly News.
