Lizz Winstead

As co-creator and former head writer of The Daily Show and Air America Radio co-founder, Lizz Winstead has helped changed the very landscape of how people get their news.  As a performer, Lizz brought her political wit to The Daily Show as a correspondent and later to the radio waves co-hosting “Unfiltered,” Air America Radio’s mid-morning show, where she brought on board hip hop legend Chuck D and political big brain Rachel Maddow.

Recently, Lizz wrote and produced an independent pilot of her Off-Broadway hit, “Wake Up World,” a scathing satire about morning chat shows that Rachel Maddow called, “The funniest thing I have seen in years.”

 Her talents as a comedian and media visionary have been recognized by The New York Times, The Washington PostEntertainment Weekly and many others.  Her weekly segments on “The Ed Show” on MSNBC and HLN’s “The Joy Behar Show” feature her hilarious spin on breaking news.

Lizz recently hit the road in support of Planned Parenthood with her “Planned Parenthood, I’m Here for You” tour!


She lives in New York City with her dogs Edie and Buddy and her first book: Lizz Free or Die is available now in bookstores everywhere.
