About Cathy Ladman

Winner of the 1992 American Comedy Award for Best Female Stand Up Comic, Cathy Ladman draws laughter by poking fun at her own neuroses. Her many appearances on late-night TV, her HIP solo show “Scaredypants,” and HBO special “One Night Stand” focus on family, growing up, relationships, and real life from a very personal perspective. Born and raised in New York, Cathy now lives in Los Angeles where she has an acting career in television, theatre, and film alongside stand-up comedy. Her talents extend well beyond the screen. She has spent seasons writing for television, including “The Caroline Rhea Show” and “Roseanne,” and was published in the funny book, Moms Are Nuts. “Does This Show Make Me Look Fat?” is likely to be her next tour-de-force.
