For Immediate ReleaseWed, Oct 17, 2018
RENO, Nev. (Oct. 17, 2018) — Iliza Shlesinger is one of today’s leading comedians with a fan base who show their loyalty by creating their own Iliza-inspired swag to wear to her shows. Last year she hosted her late night limited run talk show “Truth & Iliza” on Freeform. Shlesinger also released her first book Girl Logic: The Genius and the Absurdity,” a subversively funny collection of essays and observations on a confident woman’s approach to friendship, singlehood and relationships. Don’t miss Iliza Shlesinger live at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino on Saturday, March 2 at 7:30 p.m.
Originally from Dallas, Shlesinger moved to Los Angeles after graduating from Emerson College. She is the only female and youngest comedian to hold the title of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and her debut comedy special, “War Paint,” was acquired by Netflix and named one of its Top 10 Albums of 2013. Shlesinger’s follow-up Netflix specials, “Freezing Hot” and “Confirmed Kills,” sealed her title as one of the hottest touring acts in America with “Esquire Magazine” listing her as one of the top working comedians today.
Shlesinger just premiered “Elder Millennial,” her fourth Netflix stand-up special. In addition to her stand-up, she recently completed filming the Paramount Pictures movie “Instant Family,” starring Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne, which is slated for release in Feb. 2019.
Shlesinger’s stand-up credentials include headlining the coveted Montreal Just For Laughs (JFL) Festival and The New York Comedy Festival. As a national headliner, she tours year-round selling out theatres, clubs and colleges. She has also participated in the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff’s personal USA Tour throughout the Middle East and Europe, as well as Al Roker’s “Today Show” USO Tour in Afghanistan with Jay Leno and Craig Robinson.
Opening for Shlesinger is Hunter Hill, a comedian from Los Angeles who has performed at Riot LA, JashFest, Charleston Comedy Festival and Montreal JFL. Hill brings comedy to storytelling and speaks to a broad audience. He is a perfect blend of Mike Birbiglia and Jim Gaffigan.
