Monday, May 14, 2012

Lizz Winstead, comedian, social critic, and co-creator of The Daily Show, tells how she fought to find her own voice, both as a comedian and as a woman, and how humor became her most powerful weapon in confronting life's challenges. In Lizz Free or Die she tells about her childhood longing to be a priest, her role in developing The Daily Show, and her habit of diving into everything head first.

It's why I love the Colbert Report and stopped watching the Daily Show long ago. Years. Jon Stewart takes his own left-wing baloney too seriously. Colbert makes fun of it. Colbert is great, the wittiest and most brilliant guy on TV by FAR!

This dizzy Lizzy is really mixed up.
