About the Comedians

Liz Glazer Portrait

 

 

Liz Glazer

Liz Glazer is a standup comedian, actor, writer, and former tenured law professor. Liz attended the University of Pennsylvania, where she obtained her BA and MA in philosophy, magna cum laude, and then attended the University of Chicago Law School where she obtained her JD and was a member of the Law Review...all before quitting to pursue standup comedy, so these degrees are now props. As an academic, Liz's papers were published in the Northwestern University Law Review, the Georgetown Law Journal, and the Harvard Journal of Law & Gender, among other journals. As a comedian, Liz has opened for comedians Myq Kaplan and Maria Bamford, and recently won first place in the Boston Comedy Festival and was the feature of an article about her trajectory from tenured law professor to standup comedian published in the Wall Street Journal. Send Liz an email from her website, www.dearlizglazer.com. She'll never delete it (a joke you'll get soon!).
