The New York Times best-selling author has seen success with her semi-autobiographical Amazon series, "One Mississippi," which ran for two seasons; a 2015 HBO special, "Boyish Girl Interrupted"; and "Live," a comedy album that hit No. 1 on Billboard charts in 2012. She performed the live set four days after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Her 2016 memoir, "I'm Just a Person," also addressed her cancer struggle.

Her second comedy special, "Happy to Be Here," was released last year on Netflix.
