Who is Cathy Ladman?

Cathy Ladman is a Jewish American stand-up comedian, television writer, and actor. She was featured in her own installment of HBO's One Night Stand comedy series, and has been a guest on The Tonight Show on nine occasions. She has had numerous supporting roles in films like Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead, My Fellow Americans, and White Oleander, and two Mike Nichols films: "What Planet Are You From?" and Charlie Wilson's War, as well as TV shows like Roseanne, Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, Caroline in the City, and Everybody Loves Raymond. She won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Stand-Up Comic in 1992.

Ladman's comedy is self-described as "self-probing, anxiety-venting vehicle" for "exposing personal neurosis". She is currently working on a new solo show, entitled, Does This Show Make Me Look Fat?

In 2007, she was featured in the Off-Broadway production J.A.P. - The Princesses of Comedy, which included live standup routines by four female Jewish comics juxtaposed with the stories of legendary performers from the 1950s and 1960s, Totie Fields, Jean Carroll, Pearl Williams, Betty Walker and Belle Barth.
