In 2008, she became the first woman and the youngest winner of the show “Last Comic Standing” during its sixth season, going head-to-head against other comedians and winning each time, leading her to become a part of The Last Comic Standing Tour.

She then contributed to the History Channel special “Surviving the Holidays”, narrating the 2009 documentary entitled “Imagine It! The Power of Imagination”. The following year, she released the video “Man Up and Act Like a Lady”, and a comedy album entitled “Iliza Live” through her own website, followed by appearing in a comedy video series for Slate. She also started getting numerous hosting opportunities, starting with “The Weakly News” which she was a part of for five years.

1[on the song "Blurred Lines"] It's our number one export, smut. Yeah, you're welcome. Violent smut. We like it hard and fast.
2My things are universal truths. Male-female interaction, the way women think. It doesn't matter what kind of woman you are. I try to tap into what makes us women. And I think that's why girls like it so much - because I'm letting them know all those crazy thoughts you thought were just in your head, they're in my head too. It's okay. Let's take a breath.
3I feel like our society wants women to be ashamed of their bodies and be insecure. And I was like, 'What? Society told me to be in shape, so I'm in shape. And now I can't show it off?'
