Lizz Winstead (born August 5, 1961) is a Minnesota-born comedian who was co-creator of The Daily Show along with Madeline Smithberg, and served as head writer. In late 1997, the show's host Craig Kilborn made an offensive comment about Winstead in an Esquire magazine interview, and behind-the-scenes tension led her to leave the program in early 1998. Winstead has made multiple appearances as a panelist on shows such as Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn and the public access/PBS program Mental Engineering (where she was notably featured in an episode that aired following Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002). In 2002 she and Brian Unger cohosted O2Be, a satire of network morning programs that was broadcast on the Oxygen channel. Until March 2005, she was a co-host of Unfiltered on Air America Radio, along with Rachel Maddow and Chuck D. Since May 2005 she has been a contributing blogger at The Huffington Post. In July 2007 she began producing and hosting a live show in NYC called Shoot the Messenger a satirical wrap-up of the week's news as seen through the eyes of the world's worst 6-hour morning show "Wake Up World", and featuring interviews with media notables such as Rachel Maddow, Ted Rall, Paul Rieckhoff, and Mark Crispin Miller.
