“Catie Lazarus has the rare ability to be both hilarious and empathic at the same time. So when she interviews people, the audience really gets sucked into their lives (in a good way) but they also split their seams laughing.” – Stephen Dubner, Co-Creator, Freakonomics
“Damn, you’re good. You’re like me, but sexy.” – Dick Cavett
“You’re like Charlie Rose, but funny.” – Gloria Steinem
“Catie Lazarus’ ‘Employee of the Month’ is one of the funniest, classiest, silliest, and smartest talk shows that I’ve ever encountered. The lovely host not only possesses a remarkable wit, but she’s well informed, and doesn’t simply rely on the comedic or antic, which would be easy because she is very very funny. There’s a sneaky, morally centered impulse riding under the discourse with her guests. She has great respect for her audience and she’s not afraid to ask tough questions. And this is all delivered with warmth and great respect for the notion that we must all occasionally make fools of ourselves if we are to pursue a life that’s worth a damn.”
– Adam Rapp, Obie Award winning playwright, director, and actor
“In addition to being one of the more entertaining interviews I’ve ever had, Catie Lazarus made me feel welcome, warm and as if what I do for a living somehow counts.”
– Sloane Crosley, New York Times best-selling essayist
“Congratulations on “EOTM” being named one of the best comedy shows by New York Magazine. They certainly had a tough time, I’m sure, because it is really much, much, more than comedy. And I really do love all of it.” – Barney, A Fan
