CapComedy: Liz Russo

LIZ RUSSO is a stand-up comic and has been performing for over a decade. She headlines regularly for comedy clubs, colleges, theaters, casinos, festivals, and events across the country.

Liz recently made three appearances on The Q with Quincy Harris on FOX TV and was featured on a segment with Inside Edition on CBS. If you are a fan of podcasts, you can hear Liz on the popular Riotcast YKWD (You Know What Dude) with Robert Kelly and In Hot Water on Compound Media.

Liz filmed for Laughs on FOX, and was a guest on Sirius XM’s “My Wife Hates Me” with Bonnie McFarlane and Rich Vos! Liz also has been a featured guest on Canada Talks with Ward & Al on Sirius XM Canada.

Liz was a regular at the Comedy Stop at the Tropicana Casino in Atlantic City before closing in 2015, and her self-produced and hosted comedy showcase, One Night Stand with Liz Russo, was a long running hit at Carolines on Broadway in New York City.

Liz’s national comedy festival credits include twice performing for Gilda’s Laugh Fest in Grand Rapids Michigan, two time performer at the ‘Laugh Your Asheville Off’ Comedy Festival in Asheville, North Carolina, the World Series of Comedy satellite in Providence, Rhode Island, North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival in Chapel Hill North Carolina, as well as the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival in Austin, Texas, and the prestigious Boston Comedy Festival in Boston, Massachusetts. Liz headlined the Charm City Comedy Festival and the Baltimore Comedy Festival in Baltimore, Maryland.

Internationally, Liz Russo performed numerous shows at the SheDot Festival in Toronto, Canada. Liz also returned to the Atlantis Resort in Nassau, Bahamas to headline at Jokers Wild Comedy Club in 2018.

In her hometown region of Pennsylvania, Liz Russo was named by 8,000 voting readers of Lehigh Valley Style Magazine, the Best Comic of the Lehigh Valley 2016 and 2017.

Liz combines sexual innuendo with her confident spin on self-deprecating humor. She draws from her personal experience as a plus size model, her struggles with weight loss, and maintaining a positive body image. She openly discusses sex, being unmarried and childless in her late 30s, and her alcoholism recovery.

Liz’s exuberant likability makes all of life and its adversities sexy, joyful, and earnestly comical. Liz has been called “adorable” and her comedy style as “hilariously self-effacing and endearing” combined with a “no-holds barred approach”. Liz is an easily likeable and relatable personality with an honesty and vulnerability that allows her to entertain audiences of all kinds.
