NEW YORK, July 26, 2010 — Don’t let the lip gloss fool you! Whitney Cummings is tough, sharp and doesn’t cover up the blemishes of being a single girl in the World Television Premiere of “Whitney Cummings: Money Shot,” a one-hour stand-up special, premiering on COMEDY CENTRAL on Saturday, August 21 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT.
Taped at Washington D.C.’s Sidney Harmon Hall, “Whitney Cummings: Money Shot” features Cummings commenting on male strippers, fake boobs and getting spanked in the bedroom, among other things, in this hilarious performance. It’s not every day a funny lady reveals the best way to punish a boyfriend, what it’s really like to date a vampire, the similarities between The Food Network and porn and the “emotional ninja” tactics all women have at their disposal!
Cummings will return to the roast stage with her cutting-edge humor in the “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of David Hasselhoff,” airing August 15 as a follow up to her performance on “The COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Joan Rivers.” She was named “Comedy Star of Tomorrow” by Entertainment Weekly, one of the “Top Ten Comics to Watch” by Daily Variety and is this year’s “Comedian of the Year” at the Young Hollywood Awards. Cummings is a regular on Chelsea Handler’s “Chelsea Lately” and performed in “The Comedians of Chelsea Lately” stand-up special on E! She’s made appearances on “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien,” HBO’s “Down and Dirty with Jim Norton” and had roles in “Punk’d” and the film “Made of Honor.” Cummings is also the co-executive Producer of her series, “Live, Nude, Comedy” on Showtime.
