BIOGRAPHY

     The best way to get inside Cathy Ladman's head is to see her live. 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.  

     A native New Yorker, now living in Los Angeles, Cathy is successfully pursuing an acting career in television and film. Her film credits include “Charlie Wilson’s War,” “The Aristocrats,” "White Oleander,” "What Planet Are You From?" "My Fellow Americans," and "Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead.” Her television pilots include "Caroline in the City," in which she had a recurring role, "Next Exit," "Carlos," "American Nuclear," and "Hot Prospects." She appeared regularly on ABC's "Politically Incorrect" and, when it was in production, Comedy Central's "Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist." She has guest starred in several sitcoms, including “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” "Titus" and "Everybody Loves Raymond." Cathy most recently appeared in the 3rd season of Nick at Nite’s “Funniest Mom in America.”
     Besides stand-up comedy, Cathy’s writing career includes developing original television treatments, episodic scripts, and feature-length screenplays. Cathy spent seasons writing on “The Caroline Rhea Show” (2002), “The Wayne Brady Show” (2001), “Caroline in the City” (different Caroline altogether – 1997), and “Roseanne” (1996). She recently wrote on the pilot episode of Bravo’s, “Situation Comedy.”
     In addition to stand-up, TV, and film, Cathy has been doing more live theatre: She just completed a successful run Off-Broadway in, “The JAP Show: The Princesses of Comedy;” she was in the 25th Anniversary Production of “Last Summer at Bluefish Cove” in Los Angeles; she and HBO developed her solo show, “Scaredypants,” and took it to the Aspen Comedy Festival; and she’s currently working on a new solo show, “Does This Show Make Me Look Fat?”
     Cathy's comedy focuses on family, growing up, relationships, and real life from a very personal perspective.  The Los Angeles Times put it best "... Ladman has such clever, well-written material and such a breezy, unassuming delivery that it would be easy to overlook just how good she is: Her act seems effortless."
