Last Sex Symbol Standing
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.
