Iliza Shlesinger, one of today’s leading comedians, is coming to Nashville to tape a Netflix Special of her stand-up comedy on May 31 at TPAC’s Polk Theater.
Tickets for ILIZA: Netflix Special Taping go on sale on Friday, March 22, at TPAC.org, by phone at 615-782-4040, and the TPAC Box Office, 505 Deaderick St., in downtown Nashville.
Iliza recently premiered “Elder Millennial,” her fourth Netflix stand up special for the streaming service. The campaign featured her styled in classic looks from the late 90s and early 2000s. Her past specials “War Paint,” “Freezing Hot” and “Confirmed Kills,” have made her one of the top comedians working today.
In addition to her stand up, Iliza was recently seen co-starring in the Paramount Pictures movie “Instant Family,” starring Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne. She’ll next be seen in Netflix’s “Wonderland” for director Peter Berg, which also stars Wahlberg.
She recently 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. On her new podcast AIA: Ask Iliza Anything, she offers up her unique perspective to listeners, answering their questions on virtually any topic.
Other credits include, “Truth & Iliza,” a limited-run talk show she hosted on Freeform and “Forever 31”, a digital series she created and starred in for ABC Digital. She is the only female and youngest comedian to hold the title of “NBC’s Last Comic Standing.”
Iliza’s stand-up credentials also include headlining the coveted Montreal Just For Laughs Festival and The New York Comedy Festival. As a national headliner, Iliza tours internationally year-round selling out theatres. She regularly takes part in United Service Organization tours to show her support of those who serve, and has participated in the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s personal USO Tour throughout the Middle East and Europe. Iliza was also featured in Al Roker’s Today Show USO Tour in Afghanistan, and recently took part in the Geena Davis Institute’s “Funny Ladies: Serious Business” panel and the Emily’s List event, Cocktails For Change.
Iliza was featured in Elle’s “Women in Comedy” issue two years in a row, and her television credits include multiple appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” and “The Today Show.”
Iliza lives in Los Angeles where she spends time making up songs and nicknames for her dog Blanche.
