As co-creator and head writer of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show”, Lizz Winstead has changed the way people get their news and react to politics forever. Next she took her unique satiric voice to the radio waves, co-founding Air America Radio and shared the mic every morning hosting “Unfiltered” with the amazing Rachel Maddow.
Since the last time Winstead was back in The Twin Cities performing, she has been a busy woman. Her national comedy tour to benefit Planned Parenthood has raised over 1.5 million dollars and was made into a documentary film, Smear Campaign.
Lizz’s talents as a comedian and media visionary have been recognized by (to name a few) The New York Times, The Washington Post and Entertainment Weekly’s 100 most Creative People issue and has brought numerous television appearances, including Comedy Central Presents, HBO, CNN as well as her regular commentary on MSNBC. Winstead also provides satirical commentary to The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal and The Huffington Post.
Her book Lizz Free Or Die was released in paperback in May 2013.
