The Freshly Shaven Lisa Ann Walter .... her words

Happy Birthday Lisa!

Weekends I turn on the car talk guys at 10am. Then Leo Laporte at 11am. Do nothing like today. Shit I have to hose down that patio and get the grill ready for rib eyes. But before that, it's the best female talk show host in LA, The Fabulous Lisa Ann Walter. She's on KFI Saturday and Sunday from 4 to 6pm, and she's a hoot. She's honest and shoots from the hip and is blunt and funny as hell. She can talk about anything and make it entertaining. You don't see any really good female hosts on AM radio, especially anyone that can do a show that I would listen to.

This is from Wikipedia: Walter was born and raised in suburban Silver Spring, Maryland, near Washington, D.C., where she remembers "always liking to show off" as a child. She was a high-achieving student and always the class clown. Walter's father worked at NASA and indulged his own love of performing after-hours in local community theater. Her mother was a teacher, later working at the local courthouse. Her parents, both native New Yorkers, divorced when Walter was in elementary school. She attended Montgomery Blair High School, Silver Spring, Maryland, finally studying drama at the Catholic University of America under the tutelage of the renowned Father Gilbert Hartke. She began appearing in various regional and dinner theater productions, and met her future spouse, Sam Baum, while performing in "A Streetcar Named Desire". They married before moving toNew York, where both began various "day jobs" while raising their baby, shoehorning in frequent auditions and roles various off-Broadway venues. Walter performed at amateur night contests at some of the noted comedy clubs, and soon had audiences roaring with her dead-on perspectives on kids, domestic life and social issues.



Lisa's Career

After five years of standup comedy, she was cast to star in her own Fox Network comedy series, My Wildest Dreams, followed by an ABC sitcom, Life's Work, which she both created and starred in. Walter also co-starred in the critically acclaimed Bravo series Breaking News and in the NBC sitcom Emeril.
On the feature side, in addition to Bruce Almighty (2003) and Shall We Dance (2004), Walter received rave reviews co-starring in the hit Disney film The Parent Trap (1998). In the remake of the original classic, she appeared as the nanny to Dennis Quaid's daughter, who was played by a young Lindsay Lohan. Prior to that, Walter played Whoopi Goldberg's tarty sidekick Claudine in Eddie (1996).
In early 2007, Walter had a supporting role as Mabel the bartender in the MyNetworkTV soap opera Watch Over Me. That summer, she served as a judge on the ABC reality TV show The Next Best Thing, which searched for the best celebrity impersonators in America.
In the Spring of 2008, Walter was seen in the comedy film Drillbit Taylor, and also starred on the VH1 reality series Celebracadabra, in which celebrities competed to see who was the best magician among them. She made it to the final three but was eliminated in the sixth episode. She has developed a series for the Oxygen network called Dance Your Ass Off. Her comic memoir, "The Best Thing About My Ass Is That It's Behind Me" is being published in May, 2011..

I like listening to her show because she's just so honest and doesn't hold back her real opinion. I've heard from lots of other radio hosts that you must be honest, because the audience will know if your not and then your doomed. Lisa is brutally honest and that's what I really like about her.
