Partnership illustrates LEG’s focus on taking the best talent and showcasing them both digitally and live in their network of comedy clubs nationwide.


As part of a major digital + live initiative, Levity Entertainment Group’s (LEG) Sideshow Network announced the launch of the “Truth & Iliza” Podcast featuring national touring headline comedian Iliza Shlesinger. "Truth & Iliza" is a weekly interview show with an impressive guest-list where Iliza and her guests break down the annoying things about life. She jokingly refers to the show as “the podcast with opinions.”

Iliza is the only female & the youngest comedian to ever have received the title of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” Her debut one-hour comedy special “War Paint” reached #1 on the iTunes charts and is currently available on Netflix along with her follow up Netflix Original Comedy Special “Freezing Hot” that premiered in early 2015. She is currently one of the hottest touring acts in America, selling out clubs and theatres across the nation. Esquire recently listed her as one of the top working comedians today. Later this year, Shlesinger is next set to host 14 episodes of the highly anticipated original series from TBS entitled Separation Anxiety.

“Truth & Iliza” is one of the many comedic podcasts Sideshow Network is producing as part of an initiative to take today’s top live touring comedians and showcase them both digitally and in LEG’s nationwide network of Improv and Levity Live comedy clubs. LEG is planning live podcast events around “About Last Night” with Adam Ray (The Heat, Spy) & Brad Williams (Brad Williams: Fun Size, Legit) and “Why Didn’t They Laugh” with Owen Benjamin (Sullivan & Son, The Next Great Burger) and more.

Iliza Shlesinger can be found online at Iliza.com and on Twitter @iliza.
