Possessed of an inordinate self-belief, Liza Treyger is one of the sharpest, funniest comics ever to not give a shit what you think of her.  Named one of Variety's "Ten To Watch" at this year's Just For Laughs, the Odessa-born firebrand discusses how a trip to Palm Springs with a stylist changed her brain; her self-sabotage techniques; wanting women to have a great time, and how to tell which couples in an audience aren't fucking.
