Dance, Monkey: Iliza Shlesinger

We put a comic on the hot seat. This week’s victim . . .
By SARA FAITH ALTERMAN  |  October 22, 2008


Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo broke his finger! What will this mean for his girlfriend, Jessica Simpson?
Guess it depends on which finger.

What money-saving tips can you offer your fellow Americans in this time of economic crisis?
It’s too late to cash in your war bonds; you’re about 50 years overdue. See if you can buy stock in yellowcake uranium in a foreign market.

What/who is your favorite fall fruit?
Those pimply colorful gourds. I can’t figure them out. They’re like the ugly stepsisters for the pumpkin. Can you eat them? No. Are they pretty? No. Do you need them on your table? Yes. Do you know why? No.

What can you see from your house?
Russians. I live in West Hollywood.

Last Comic Standing is executive-produced, in part, by Peter Engel, who also produced Saved By The Bell. Which SBTB character would you most want to make out with?
There was a substitute-teacher character on there, Jeremiah Lasky. I think he and Kelly did it. Anyway, he was mature, hot, and I’ve since seen him on a few other shows. I’d mouth-kiss him.
