Glazer: ‘Excused’ Star Iliza Schlesinger Has Hot Date at Stanford’s

It’s been the year of the woman for comedy around the nation…

Chelsea Handler not only has her show, but five others to boot. Whitney Cummings has taken over the roasts from Lisa Lampanelli and has her own sit com now in season two.

And moving up the fast track is another young star named Iliza Schlesinger.

This young beauty was the only female winner on NBC’s Last Comic Standing three years ago. Iliza parlayed that into her own TV series, EXCUSED. The show now enters season two and is on year round. Her series runs five days a week nationwide.

The not quite 30 star is also in line for her own network talk show. Iliza and area comic, KU gal Nikki Glaser are the two young guns right behind Chelsea and Whitney today.

Women have a tougher time in the comedy industry than men.

First off there are 10 times more guys doing comedy than women. Outside of Chelsea few TV shows have gone to young women. With this new group that has started to change.

There’s more desire to hear the point of view from women about dating, sex, relationships and working in what is still a man’s world. So far its working. Iliza is all over it.

Her comedy on stage is fast paced and no-holds-barred on everything from what women want in a man to the social media’s insane new life style.

I met Iliza at Pauley and Mitzi Shore‘s Comedy Store in 2009. She had just won NBC’S Last Comic Standing and her show was so high energy it really stood out from the other top named comics that night.

My lawyer introduced me to her and we hit it off. She came in that year and was just great. A year later her career exploded but now she’s back again. She’s a tough cookie, very attractive and we have a running joke about this one, “No I never slept with Craig Glazer.” She yells that out in public so anyone seeing us doesn’t think the she’s babe of the week. In fact she pulled that stunt in Canada this past July at the Montreal Comedy Fest. Iliza had a show there and killed. In fact when Chelsea did her thing at the Festival, Iliza was kind enough to come down and watch Steve Kramer and I give our pitch for our animated show.

I will always love her for coming in a day early with T.J. Miller and doing the memorial show for my younger brother Jack nearly a year ago.

If you want to see one of the top 5 female comics in America, catch Iliza Schlesinger live this week at Stanford’s. I promise you’ll be glad you came.

    Or if you’re really into “comedy” and need a good laugh, just stay home and listen to the presidential debates. “Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am, stuck in the middle with you.” Is this a great country or what?

    • Craig Glazer says:

      agreed, man what a bunch of nothing…”I spoke to a lady in Ohio who told me her husband was out of work, they lost their home….and…” like either of these two guys care or relate to that, by the way he’s still outta work….the problem is simple too much tax city, state, fed for EVERYONE, especially small biz, who are getting killed..wish these guys would address the real issues, no money for CD’s, none…no way to make safe income on your saving … none…monthly bills for health care tripled over the last decade, allowing TV TO CHARGE 200 A MONTH FOR WHAT SHOULD BE FREE OR NEAR FREE WE DO PAY FOR THOSE COMMERCIALS HUH….the reall issues are never addressed….and nothing is done..nothing…it doesn’t matter really who wins..does it.

      • Guy Who Says What Others Think says:

        All that being said, Mitt Romney stomped a mudhole in Obama’s ass.

        • Craig Glazer says:

          I think Romney showed he was not backing down, he is a good speaker, thinks on his feet and is man you can like and believe in to a point…yes he won because he didn’t lose, he gained ground…I agree…but nothing in his ‘plan’ was clear or uplifting…nor was the presidents.

          • Skeptic says:

            “yes he won because he didn’t lose”
            More insightful and critical thinking right there.

    Just so you will know I turned in a story on last nights debate to Hearne last night, should be up sometime today…I know you all have issues and opinions on the subject, so it will be up latter. It’s likely a couple other writers will post something on the debates as well….they both seemed like TV news anchor men didn’t they? Both polished, well dressed, nice looking…sharp…but I just don’t hear anything from either of them that inspires me… numbers from each that both say aren’t true… a plan of WHAT exactly? Hey this is just the economy…we haven’t heard about defense or the middle east yet… again seems to me either man will do about the same job in office, its the time we live in that make things difficult. Always are.

  3. Craig Glazer says:

    By the way lost in the debate comments…hey this is about a beautiful and talented young comic, Iliza….watch her today on NBC’s 41 at 1030 Am for interview or tomorrow on KCTV 5 at 940 AM(approx.) you can hear her with me on Mix 93.3 at 820 AM Friday and Q 104.3 at 845 AM Friday with Mike Kennedy and crew…
