Last Comic Standing winner Iliza Schlesinger is returning to Las Vegas for a special Aces of Comedy stop at the Mirage this July.
One of today’s leading comedians, Iliza is the only female and youngest comedian to hold the title of NBC’s Last Comic Sanding. Since then, she’s proven just how funny she is with numerous comedy specials, including War Paint, which reached #1 on the iTunes charts and was named one of its Top 10 Albums of 2013. Esquire Magazine listed her as one of the top working comedians today after the release of Freezing Hot, a Netflix Original Comedy Special. In September 2016, Iliza premiered yet another Netflix special, Confirmed Kills. She’s currently on her fourth Netflix special titled Elder Millennial, which will premiere later this year.
The comedian recently achieved a lifelong goal when she launched her late night limited run talk show Truth & Iliza, on Freeform. The talk show is a cross between social commentary, politics, pop culture and Iliza’s own brand of feminism. In addition, she is currently filming the Paramount Pictures film, Instant Family, starring Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne.
Iliza has also headlined at the coveted Montreal Just For Laughs Festival and The New York Comedy Festival. She was recently featured in Elle’s Women in Comedy annual issue for the second year in a row. The star has also dabbled in television, making appearances on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Late Late Show with James Corden, and The Today Show. Additionally, her digital scripted series, Forever 31 is currently streaming on Hulu.
Iliza performs at the Mirage Saturday, July 7 at 10:00 p.m. You can find discounted tickets to the show here on Best of Vegas.
