• Iliza Shlesinger joins Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Burr for Garden of Laughs fundraiser

    Iliza Shlesinger has joined the lineup for Garden of Laughs, the bi-annual comedy benefit thrown in support of the Gardens of Dreams Foundation. Presented by Delta Airlines, Shlesinger joins a night of stand-up performances among fellow top comedians like Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Burr, Michael Che, John Mulaney, Brian Regan, and Jon Stewart.

    The 2019 show is hosted by Steve Schirripa and will take place at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden on April 2.

    Shlesinger recently premiered her fourth Netflix stand-up special, Elder Millennial—which ranked 12th on Laughspin’s end-of-year best of list. The Last Comic Standing winner has gained popularity with her three previous Netflix specials: War Paint, Freezing Hot, and Confirmed Kills. Shlesinger released her first book Girl Logic: The Genius and the Absurdity, a collection of essays and observations on a confident woman’s approach to friendship and singlehood. In addition to stand-up, she was recently seen on the big screen in Instant Family alongside Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne.
