About Cathy Ladman

 As one of the country's top comedians, Ladman's show is a self-probing, anxiety-venting vehicle, which draws laughter from exposing personal neurosis. She has not only appeared on "The Tonight Show" nine times, but was also the only female comic to appear on the last two Johnny Carson "Tonight Show Anniversary" shows. Cathy has had her own HBO "One Night Stand" comedy special and, in 1992, was awarded the American Comedy Award for Best Female Stand Up Comic. Most recently, Cathy was one of the three finalists in Nick at Nite’s "Funniest Mom in America."

Cathy is successfully pursuing an acting career in television and film, appeared regularly on ABC's "Politically Incorrect" and has guest starred on Fox's "Titus" and CBS's "Everybody Loves Raymond."

In addition to stand-up, TV, and film, Cathy has been acting in live theatre, and she's currently working on a new solo show, entitled, "Does This Show Make Me Look Fat?"
