Think of this series as an online slam book, where we get to know our favorite people...
What was your first concert? Bruce Springsteen at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis
Who was your biggest childhood crush? Davy Jones
Favorite book growing up? Are You There God? It's Me Margaret.
What's your best childhood toy-related scar? Figuring out my Betsy Wetsy doll could also barf if I put the bottle in her pee hole. My mother sent me to therapy. I thought I was innovative. Hmm.
What's the best part of getting older? Having enough life experience and smarts to be taken seriously.
As co-creator and former head writer of The Daily Show and co-founder of Air America Radio, Lizz Winstead has helped change the very landscape of how people get their news. Winstead also brought her political wit to The Daily Show as a correspondent and later to the radio waves co-hosting Unfiltered, Air America Radio's mid-morning show, with Chuck D and Rachel Maddow.
Lizz continues doing stand-up and is working on a second book, but spends most of her time at the helm of Lady Parts Justice, a reproductive rights organization that uses humor and outrage to expose anti-choice zealots and mobilizes people to take action in all 50 states.
