“The caustic Texan offers up strong opinions on dating, pop culture and the state of her nation with an unapologetic, come-get-some attitude… terrifyingly honest, quick-fire stories with hilarious pay-offs” ★★★★ Time Out

The news arrives as multiple dates on Iliza’s upcoming Autumn UK tour, which also includes shows at Edinburgh’s Assembly Roxy on the 6th November, Manchester’s Lowry on the 7th November, Bristol’s 1532 Performing Arts Centre on the 11th November, Nottingham’s Glee Club on the 12th November and Cardiff’s Glee Club on the 13th November, are reaching capacity. The tour follows a limited set of performances completely selling out in England earlier this year and full houses for her run at the Soho Theatre in 2015.
In addition to stand-up, Iliza recently released her fourth Netflix special Elder Millennial and completed filming the Paramount Pictures movie Instant Family, starring Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne which is slated for release in February 2019. Last year, she hosted her late night limited run talk show Truth & Iliza on Freeform and published her first book Girl Logic: The Genius and the Absurdity, comprising of a subversively funny collection of essays and observations on a confident woman’s approach to friendship, singlehood, and relationships.
Iliza’s debut one-hour comedy special, War Paint, reached number 1 on the iTunes charts and was named one of its Top 10 Albums of 2013. Her follow-up Netflix specials Freezing Hot (2015) and Confirmed Kills (2016), sealed her title as one of the hottest touring acts in America, with Esquire Magazine listing her as one of the top working comedians today. She is also the only female and youngest comedian to hold the title of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Her live appearances welcome a dedicated fan base who show their loyalty through wearing Iliza inspired swag creations.
Originally from Dallas, Iliza moved to Los Angeles where she spends time making up songs and nicknames for her dog Blanche. Other TV credits include multiple appearances on NBC’S The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Today Show and CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden. Additionally, her digital scripted series, Forever 31 is currently streaming on ABCd and Hulu and has already been picked up for a second season.
