After being described by LA Weekly as Ã¢â‚¬?cute,Ã¢â‚¬? television personality and comedian Laura Swisher realized she had finally broken through an important barrier. Ã¢â‚¬?As an artist and as a woman,Ã¢â‚¬? says Laura. Ã¢â‚¬?ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s deeply fulfilling when a television critic sees past your innate creativity and notices your outside beauty. Too often in this industry women are only seen as Ã¢â‚¬â„¢funnyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ or Ã¢â‚¬â„¢important,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ so itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s refreshing to finally be taken seriously for my looks.Ã¢â‚¬? Nevertheless, when offered the chance to pose for Playboy for a Ã¢â‚¬?Women of Tech TVÃ¢â‚¬? spread, she turned the magazine down. Ã¢â‚¬?I wanted to hold out for a magazine noted for its articles, like Ã¢â‚¬â„¢MaximÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ or Ã¢â‚¬â„¢FHMÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.Ã¢â‚¬? Laura got her start as a stand-up comedian in Los Angeles after giving up a rewarding career as a publicist. Ã¢â‚¬?Working in PR definitely filled a void in my life,Ã¢â‚¬? she explains. Ã¢â‚¬?ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s no greater satisfaction in life than surrounding oneself with C-list actors at corporate-sponsored events, secure in the knowledge that at least one newspaper will run a blurb about it. And yet, it wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t enough for me.Ã¢â‚¬? Within a year of quitting PR, she landed her first TV appearance on Ã¢â‚¬?Destination Stardom,Ã¢â‚¬? a variety show on the wildly-popular Pax network. Her dry, laid-back persona and trenchant fart jokes caught the industryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s attention. Soon after that she was invited to the Chicago Comedy Festival, where a lot of important people gave her business cards. Other shows followed, including Comedy CentralÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬?Premium BlendÃ¢â‚¬?, NBCÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬?Last Comic Standing,Ã¢â‚¬? where she was a semi-finalist in its first season, and OxygenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬?Girls Behaving Badly.Ã¢â‚¬? Her Ã¢â‚¬?big breakÃ¢â‚¬? occurred with a failed Ã¢â‚¬?Card SharksÃ¢â‚¬? audition that ultimately led her to co-host the national late night talk show Ã¢â‚¬?Unscrewed�with Martin SargentÃ¢â‚¬? on Tech TV (and then G4). Ã¢â‚¬?UnscrewedÃ¢â‚¬? has been described as a cross between Ã¢â‚¬?The Late Show with David LettermanÃ¢â‚¬? and Art BellÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬?Coast to CoastÃ¢â‚¬? due to its peculiar blending of comedy and Internet crackpots. Laura became one of the showÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s writers as well, and produced and starred in weekly segments. Since Ã¢â‚¬?UnscrewedÃ¢â‚¬? was cancelled in 2004, Laura has appeared numerous times on VH-1 as a commentator, and is currently a contributing correspondent on the Reelz Channel show Ã¢â‚¬?Dailies.Ã¢â‚¬? In addition, she wrote, produced and starred in segments for the highly-successful Mark Burnett reality show Ã¢â‚¬?Gold RushÃ¢â‚¬? which was hosted by Ã¢â‚¬?Entertainment TonightÃ¢â‚¬â„¢sÃ¢â‚¬? Mark Steines. She also hosts a weekly podcast called Weezy & the Swish (www.weezyandtheswish.com) which features some of the LA-areas most popular stand-ups as guests.
