About our Speaker: Lizz Winstead has built her amazing career hilariously responding to the world. As co-creator and head writer of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Winstead has forever changed the way people get their news. As co-founder of Air America Radio, she laid the foundation for such personalities as Al Franken and Marc Maron, all while hosting her own show called “Unfiltered”, sharing the mic every morning with the amazing Rachel Maddow and Hip Hop legend, Chuck D.  As a stand-up she continues to tour, bringing her rapid response brand of comedy to theatres across the country and in 2014, was initiated into the Harvard Lampoon. 

Winstead has now taken her satirical brilliance one step further, combining it with her passion for reproductive justice to form her latest passion project, Lady Parts Justice, a non profit organization made up of comedians, writers and technologists creating videos that use humor and outrage to expose sexist, anti choice local politicians in all 50 state legislatures while providing support to clinics around the country, working to remove the stigma around abortion.

Winstead’s activism includes an ongoing comedy tour to raise money and awareness for Planned Parenthood and independent abortion providers and to date, she has raised over $7 million. The tour was turned into a documentary short called Smear Campaign, which won “Best Documentary Comedy Short” at the Atlanta Documentary Film Festival. Her advocacy work has been recognized by many reproductive rights organizations including NARAL Champion’s of Choice awards. 

In addition to performing and reproductive justice work, Winstead authored Lizz Free Or Die, a funny and touching book of personal essays, that Elle magazine called, “Sharply witty and iconoclastic”

Lizz’s talents as a comedian and media visionary have been recognized by The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Entertainment Weekly’s 100 most Creative People issue among other print media. Winstead continues to appear on Comedy Central, HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher and NPR, as well as her regular commentary on MSNBC.

Winstead has a lot to say about politics and currents events, and when she says it, it is always insightful and hilarious!
