. As one of the country's top comedians, Ladman's show is a self-probing vehicle which draws laughter from exposing personal neuroses. She has not only appeared on "The Tonight Show" nine times, but was also the only female comic to appear on the last two of Johnny Carson’s "Tonight Show Anniversary" shows. She’s made four appearances, thus far, on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," did her own HBO "One Night Stand" comedy special, and was awarded the American Comedy Award for Best Female Stand Up Comic.
A native New Yorker, now living in Los Angeles, Cathy is an acclaimed television and film actor. Her film credits include “Charlie Wilson’s War,” “The Aristocrats,” and "White Oleander.” Her TV appearances include “Mad Men,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” and "Everybody Loves Raymond." She's done several TV pilots, including "Caroline in the City," in which she had a recurringrole, and a bunch of others that barely saw the light of day (or night). She also appeared regularly on ABC's "Politically Incorrect" and Comedy Central's "Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist."
Besides writing her standup act and original scripted projects, Cathy was on the writing staffs of “The Caroline Rhea Show” (2002), “Caroline in the City” (different Caroline altogether – 1997), and “Roseanne” (1996).
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."
