Its 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 NBCs reality contest Last Comic Standing, and they arent merely her blonde tresses, her sultry baby blues, and her perfect figure. Shlesingers no-nonsense outlook, twisty-turns of detail and character, and deliberate flipping of industry-wide stereotyping characterize a performer whos just as comedically appealing. Rest assured, the big win was no fluke the ComedySportz vet and 2007 victor of MySpace s So You Think Youre Funny contest also boasts such résumé-boosters as the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, The Soup, Chelsea Lately, Comics Unleashed, and TheStream.tvs The Weakly News.
