Last week, Iliza Shlesinger gave what was in my opinion one of the funniest late night sets in recent memory. Her appearance on The Tonight Show
was a primer for her new Netflix Special "Freezing Hot." If you're not familiar with her, she's a very animated and fast-paced comedian, and you're going to love this set, I guarantee it! (Returns not accepted.)
Her Netflix special "Freezing Hot"
is available now.

Jackie Kashian is a stand-up comedian of the nerdiest kind. After all, her latest special is titled "This Will Make An Excellent Horcrux", she hosts a podcast called "Dork Forest
" which regularly features a bevy of funny & nerdy guests who explain their favorite topics to dork out over, and she married a video game designer.
As a comedian, she tours often with fellow stand up Maria Bamford and was featured as the opening act in Maria's riotously funny "Special Special Special".
Following in the recent commendable pattern of other comedians who self-release their specials, Jackie has made hers available for $5 at All Things Comedy
. This business model is beneficial for both comedians & fans by removing the costly (and sometimes arbitrarily selective) distribution middle-man.
For a sample of her comedy, you can check out her set from Conan:
And you can also check out the trailer for her special:
