Best known for her standup, Whitney Cummings also created two sitcoms in 2011, 2 Broke Girls and Whitney. She starred in the latter as a fictionized version of herself. However, it was far from her first time on stage. Several years into her career, she began regularly appearing as a guest on Chelsea Lately. Even though she jumped headfirst into TV projects, Whitney hasn't forgotten standup. Her most recent special, Can I Touch It?, premiered on July 2019 on Netflix.
Comedy's New Crop
Comedienne Whitney Cummings has contributed to the world of comedy that it seems unfair to just point out just her standup comedy or acting. She's been a writer, producer, director and showrunner and has also appeared on others' shows. She's been so successful that it's hard to believe she didn't pass the showcase when she auditioned for Last Comic Standing in San Francisco. Fortunately, Cummings didn't give up. She continued appearing in movies, although it may have been the eight years she spent as a guest on Chelsea Lately that helped propel her into stardom. By 2008, Entertainment Weekly had named Cummings one of 12 Rising Stars of Comedy. Her upward momentum continued as she was the comedy roaster on three Comedy Central Roasts: Joan Rivers, David Hasselhoff and Donald Trump. During this time, she kicked off her first special and joined Denis Leary on the Rescue Me Comedy Tour. By the time Cummings had created Whitney and 2 Broke Girls, she was an unstoppable force in comedy. She moved on to directing in 2017 with independent film The Female Brain. Then, Cummings became one of the head writers and the executive producer of the Roseanne reboot in 2018.
