Comedians often come with baggage. If you don't believe me, then take a good hard look at Lisa Landry. Recently divorced after years of being married, Landry jokes about all the reasons why matrimony is a bad idea. She bases her stand up act around her experiences with break up, motherhood, and whatever else irks her enough to merit conversation. Landry, who was the first woman to come in third place in Comedy Central's Stand-up Showdown — a countdown of the top 20 Comedy Central performances — in 2008, has appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and The Bonnie Hunt Show, and is a former comedy writer for Us Weekly magazine. Clearly, she carries her baggage with confidence, recycling it into humorous narratives that almost anyone can enjoy.
