FOR MATURE AUDIENCES.

Hailed as “the reigning Queen of American stand-up,” Whitney Cummings is one of the preeminent comedic voices currently working as a stand-up comedian, actor, writer, producer, and director. Best known for creating and starring in the NBC series Whitney, she also co-created and co-wrote the Emmy-nominated CBS comedy series 2 Broke Girls.

In 2019, Whitney launched her own podcast titled “Good For You” and debuted her fourth stand-up special, Can I Touch It? on Netflix.  Previous specials have debuted on HBO and Comedy Central including her first one-hour stand-up special, Money Shot, which premiered on Comedy Central in 2010 and was nominated for an American Comedy Award. In 2017, Whitney debuted her novel “I’m Fine…And Other Lies,” which details her brutal anxiety and codependency disorder, written with her trademark entertaining wit, humor, and honesty.

On the big screen, Whitney was last seen in Unforgettable for Warner Bros. Whitney also co-wrote and directed the feature film The Female Brain, where she starred alongside Sofia Vergara, James Marsden, Lucy Punch, Toby Kebbell, Cecily Strong, Beanie Feldstein, and Blake Griffin. Past feature film credits include The Wedding Ringer, Made of Honor, and The Ridiculous Six. Whitney has appeared in such series as Undateable, Workaholics, Maron, and the Comedy Central Roasts, which have solidified her presence in comedy television.

Whitney has made countless other television appearances on talk shows such as Watch What Happens Live, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Kelly Clarkson Show, The Late Late Show, and she’s appeared on and guest hosted Jimmy Kimmel Live. The continued success can be attributed to one thing, as explained by Glamour Magazine: “One thing has remained constant in this career: Whitney says it as it is, …and OWNs stand-up comedy.”
