Wendy Liebman (born February 27, 1961 in Manhasset, New York) is an American stand-up comedian known for her distinctive style which includes quick, clever follow-ups after her jokes. She starts the joke leading it to one direction then changes it. As in 'This Thanksgiving I made a 28 pound turkey ... pot pie,' or 'I really like to shop....lift.' Liebman grew up in Roslyn, New York. In 1983, Wellesley College granted Liebman a bachelor's degree in psychology. Shortly after graduating from college, Liebman performed psychology research at Harvard Medical School. In 1984, after taking a class at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, Liebman began performing stand-up comedy in the Boston area. In 1996, a very popular HBO Half-Hour Comedy Special began airing.
