Natasha Leggero on Sarah Silverman, Russell Brand and poorly dressed comics

A bitter pill wrapped in a sweet cherry coating, comic Natasha Leggero is a double threat of intoxicating charm and tabloid cruelty. With her Audrey Hepburn style and merciless observational humor, she's known to raise the I-can't-believe-she-just-said-that bar during her regular appearances on Chelsea Lately, while still maintaining an authenticity that transcends shock for shock's sake. In anticipation of her upcoming shows at Comedy Works, we chatted with Leggero about her sweet-and-sour persona, white-trash fights on her Facebook page, and why male comedians dress like shit.
