The Los Angeles Times raves, "She's a master of the throwaway line, making a perfectly rational observation, then adding almost subliminally the punchline which skews everything she has said before." The Montreal Gazette calls her the "Queen of the Afterthought". It is this unique delivery style, paired with perfect comedic timing that makes her comedy so original and unforgettable

In addition to her comedic success, she has earned a B.A. degree in Psychology from Wellesley College.  She did psych research at Harvard Medical school.  She has authored the book " Swear to Lily".  She co-hosts a weekly radio program "Unbound" with Terri Nunn on KCSN-FM 88.5 radio Los Angeles.  She writes the health related blog LMAO. In addition to all of this, in 2010 she was clue #23 down on the New York Magazine's crossword puzzle.  As we said earlier, an endless resume.  

We are a long time fans of this very lovely lady.  We are so honored that she took time out to answer our "25 of the best".

What is the last furry thing that you touched?
Wendy:   Miko, my fat dog, whom I love.

When was the last time you had a hangover
Wendy:   2001, too many martinis. With olives. I rarely drink.

Do you remember the last time you saw a random act of kindness?
Wendy:   No. But I was recently stuck in an airport for 7 hours. They gave us meal vouchers and I had used what I could but I had some left and I gave them to a woman with an infant. It could have been that I was stuck in an airport for 7 hours, but after I gave them to her, I cried. It made me so happy.

If your iPod could only hold 3 songs, what would they be?
Wendy:   Hardest question. Something by Lyle Mays, something by Joni Mitchell, 100 Bottles of Beer on The Wall.

What are you currently reading?
Wendy:   Like Me (Chely Wright’s autobiography), and twitter.

Have you ever broken someone’s heart?
Wendy:   I’m afraid so.

If personalities had an odor, what would you smell like?

What is your theme song?
Wendy:   Windy (The Association)

Have you ever been spanked or spanked someone as an adult?
Wendy:   Nope. I think that’s punishment. I prefer a Time Out.

What do you do when you feel sad or depressed?
Wendy:   Call my bff. Walk my dog. Eat cereal.

If you were being attacked by the tickle monster, who would you want it to be?
Wendy:   My husband :)

Do you believe in ghosts? Why?
Wendy:   Maybe not in ghosts, per se, but when I was in my 20s, I was lying on my bed, and I felt someone patting my back and I turned around and no one was in the room.

Describe the perfect kiss using no more than 5 words?
Wendy:   If I’m not wearing lipstick.

What is the best dish you can cook?
