Biography

Sexually charged jokes, riffs on dysfunctional relationships, and her honest take on being a single girl in a marriage-obsessed society were just some of the raw material that launched Whitney Cummings' stand-up career. The Ivy League graduate started making a splash on the comedy circuit around 2004, when she performed back-to-back shows in popular clubs in the Los Angeles area. Cummings then made inroads on television with regular appearances on shows such as "Punk'd" (MTV, 2003-07) and the hit late-night gab fest "Chelsea Lately" (E!, 2007- ), where she gave feisty commentary on pop culture alongside host Chelsea Handler. Cummings finally became a household name as a regular roaster on Comedy Central's widely popular celebrity roasts. The razor-sharp comic slammed everyone from Joan Rivers, David Hasselhoff, and Donald Trump, and hurled a barrage of insults at fellow roasters like Greg Giraldo and Bob Saget. In 2011, Cummings received the chance of lifetime by headlining her own sitcom "Whitney" (NBC, 2011- ), a show that exposed her talents to a more mainstream audience and established her as one of the most dynamic and original comedic actresses of her generation.
