Wendy Liebman

They call her the Queen of the Asides. Wendy Liebman, winner of the 1997 American Comedy Award for funniest female stand-up, lulls audiences into a state of false confidence with her big disarming smile, then zaps them with unexpected snaps of cunning wit. Her style is frequently referred to as subliminal, with punches delivered under her breath just when you think the joke is over. With numerous TV credits (Letterman, Leno, Rosie and an HBO Half Hour Comedy Special, to name a few), Liebman is a household name. In her live show, this Long Island native with the charming stage presence will likely sublimate her way into your heart.
