About Wendy Liebman
Wendy Liebman has been performing her uniquely timed style of stand-up comedy since 1984, and is the only person in her family in show business. "My mother is a ventriloquist-But not professionally. For ten years I thought the dog was telling me to kill my father." Waiting a beat, she adds, "I got my brother to do it." Wendy's stock in trade is the one-liner with the subliminal afterthought. The effectiveness of her technique lies largely in the unexpectedness of her timing. The punchline invariably falls after the joke seems to be over. In 1990, Wendy won the Johnnie Walker Red Comedy compition. It was this performance that she caught the eye of the talent coordinator of the Tonight Show, Who invited her to be one of Johnny Carson's guests the following week. Since then Wendy has been a regular on The Late Show with David Letterman, and has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
