Elizabeth Laime is a comedy writer and podcaster. She got her start onstage at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York with her long-running one woman show, "Dear Diary" (a Time Out New York's critics' pick,) and as part of the original sketch "Maude" Team, "Gunderson". Her three podcasts, Totally Laime, Totally Married, and Totally Mommy have over ten million downloads, thousands of 5-star iTunes reviews, and accolades from publications like E! Online, USA Today, and Los Angeles Magazine. She recently sold and developed a comedy pilot, CRYSTAL, for ABC, as well as a comedy pilot inspired by her podcasts for CBS. Her most impressive accomplishment to date, however, was narrating the 1998 VHS unauthorized documentary of Leonardo DiCaprio, "Hangin' With Leo." She hates to brag about it, but it happened.
