Originally from Long Island, NY, Wendy Liebman started her career in Boston after taking a class at The Cambridge Center for Adult Education in How To Be A Stand-up Comedian. Since then she has been a regular on late night television, including Carson, Fallon, Letterman, Kimmel, Ferguson and Leno. Wendy has done half-hour specials for HBO and Comedy Central, and her first hour, “Wendy Liebman: Taller on TV” premiered on Showtime in 2011. Wendy has been in three documentaries: “The Aristocrats”, “The Boys: The Sherman Brothers’ Story,” and "Why We Laugh: Funny Women" recently on Showtime, and she was the recipient of The American Comedy Award for Best Female Comedian. Wendy currently co-hosts UNBOUND with Terri Nunn, on KCSN, 88.5 FM in Los Angeles. She also performs at clubs, corporations, and benefit shows throughout the US and Canada, and lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Jeffrey Sherman, her amazing stepsons and her funny dog. She was recently in New York Magazine, as number 23 down in the crossword puzzle.
As a kid, I always liked comedy and would listen to albums by George Carlin, Bob Newhart, Bill Cosby, and Lenny Bruce. Despite my enjoyment of these great talents, I decided to pursue an unfunny career and left Los Angeles for San Francisco State College to be a lawyer. When that did not hold my attention, I switched majors and ended up getting a Bachelor of. Art Degree in Communications.
