about CATIE

Catie Lazarus is a writer and talk show host. Gothamist named her “one of the finest live talk show hosts.” Lazarus has interviewed hundreds of distinguished folks, including Bette Midler, Congressmen Al Franken and Barney Frank, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Gloria Steinem, and Miss Piggy. Lazarus was the first person to interview Jon Stewart, after he announced his retirement from The Daily Show, and her interview with former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson went viral. A witty, whip-smart, and warm talk show host, comedian Lewis Black calls her, “more brilliant than she’ll ever know” and Freakonomics author Stephen Dubner says, “Catie Lazarus has the rare ability to be empathetic and hilarious at the same time.”

As a writer, Lazarus has contributed to The New York Times Magazine, Sundance Channel, IFC, Fusion, Sesame Workshop, Marie-Claire, The Daily Beast, Slate, Cosmo, Bust, Out, Forward, and numerous anthologies. She also does storytelling shows like The Moth, Risk, UCB’s Night of Our Lives, LIAR show, and UCB’s Asssscat, and has moderated panels, conducted interviews and hosted events for Tribeca Film Festival, IFP’s Gotham Awards, AdWeek, Women in Film, 92nd St Y, WGA-East (Writers Guild), Just Vision, Seeds of Peace, Women in Film, JCC (Houston & Manhattan), Gotham Comedy Club, Caroline’s on Broadway, Symphony Space, and Brooklyn Academy of Music.

She lives with her dog Lady Lazarus.

 

EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH

THE ONLY LATE NIGHT TALK SHOW ALL ABOUT WORK

Employee of the Month is a monthly live talk show and weekly podcast hosted by downtown comedy darling Catie Lazarus. It’s the only late night talk show all about work. Lazarus honors and interviews people she admires who (mainly) love what they do. Their candid conversations reveal the fun, frustrations, good, bad and absurd involved in creating and sustaining a fulfilling career, be it as an actor, athlete, activist, astrophysicist or orgasm expert. With a background in psychology and comedy, Lazarus is as deft riffing as she is at asking incisive questions. Her impeccable eye for discovering cutting edge talent  and insatiable curiosity for a range of industries ensures each show offers something for everyone. Ultimately what sets the show apart is her silly, smart and thoughtful sensibility which enables guests to have as much fun as the audience. From the get go, Employee of the Month garnered a cult following, which is why The New York Times describes it as “beloved” and The Guardian hails it as “a downtown institution.”


Why go to a live taping when I can listen to the podcast? Do both. Bonus episodes on the podcast are recorded 1-on-1 and the tapings are a ridiculously fun ride. Along with interviews you’ll see music, comedy, and EOTM’s house band led by MC Andrew “Jelly D.” Bancroft, beatboxer Shockwave, both of FreeStyle Love Supreme, and Eric Biondo (Antibalas). The band frequently welcomes guest musicians such as Rob Jost (Antibalas, SNL), Justin Carroll (Moondrunk), Jordan Katz (De La Soul), Arthur Lewis (FreeStyle Love Supreme), Daveed Diggs (Hamilton, Clipping), Jared Dixon (In the Heights), Adam Busch (Common Rotation), Grey McMurray (Knights on Earth), Eric Kufs (Common Rotation, Indigo Girls) and Yair Evnine (Waitress). Live illustrator Michael Arthur brings it all together. Each live show culminates with an Award Ceremony, where guests receive the coveted Employee of the Month Award, which falls somewhere between a Nobel Peace Prize and a free cup of coffee.
