Artist to Watch in 2011: Whitney Cummings

Whitney Cummings Ever since her sparkling performance on Comedy Central's Roast of Joan Rivers, Whitney Cummings has emerged as a mainstream comedy juggernaut. Her first hourlong stand-up special, Money Shot, aired in August 2010 and built on the material from her 2009 debut album, Emotional Ninja. TV viewers probably also recognize her from her frequent appearances on the Chelsea Lately panel, which has provided an ideal platform for her sharp, dark wit. Fine—with so much success already behind her, why should we be watching for this young comic to go supernova in 2011? NBC has just announced that they've picked up Whitney's as-of-yet untitled sitcom pilot, in which she will star. Add to that Two Broke Girls, the CBS series that she's also starring in and co-writing with Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City), and you can see why anyone out there who doesn't already know her name will find it hard to forget in 2011.
