Press release from Funny Business at The Millroom:

On Friday, March 20th, Lisa Landry (CBS’ Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, NBC, Comedy Central Presents) will perform shows at 7:00pm and 9:30pm in downtown Asheville at the Millroom.

Lisa Landry came up through the famed New York City comedy circuit to become an audience favorite at clubs, colleges and theaters across the country.

Landry has appeared on CBS’s “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” & “The Bonnie Hunt Show” on NBC. She starred in her own half hour Special, “Comedy Central Presents Lisa Landry.” And a nationwide vote catapulted her special to third place out of 100 top comedians in Comedy Central’s annual “Standup Showdown.” She’s the first woman to ever place in the top three.

Landry’s CD Put Your Keys in the Key Bowl was selected by iTunes as one of the “Top 10 Best Comedy CDs” of 2008. She is one of a handful of comedians chosen by TBS for their “We Know Funny” series of stand-up style commercials. She’s also appeared on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and co-starred on NBC’s “Law and Order: SVU.”

The Louisiana native was featured on “Brett Butler’s Southern Belles of Comedy” DVD. She did commentary for E!’s “Forbes Top 100 Celebrities” and CMT’s “20 Greatest Redneck Moments,” where Landry was chosen as a “Top Pick” by TV Guide. Her guest appearances include Fox’s “Morning Show with Mike and Juliet,” the “Bob and Tom Show,” Fox’s “Redeye” and the “Hollyweird” segment on MSNBC’s “Scarborough Country.” For four years, Landry was a comedy writer for US Weekly Magazine. Punchline Magazine describes Landry best: “She’s an incredibly skilled comedian, a controlling presence onstage and a master of pacing and delivery.”
