Whitney Cummings has gone from pranking celebrities on Punk'd to becoming one herself. The comedian became a regular on Chelsea Lately and Comedy Central Roast, which led to her starring in and writing her self-titled series, Whitney, hosting a talk show, and co-creating the sitcom 2 Broke Girls. Now Cummings returns to her roots when she kicks off her stand-up tour at Tempe Improv on June 14 and 15.

Cummings has had her fair share of ups and downs this year with the cancellation of her sitcom Whitney and talk show Love You, Mean It, and the success of 2 Broke Girls, a sitcom she co-created Michael Patrick King of Sex and The City.The show stars Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs as two young women trying to start a cupcake business in Brooklyn.

As an actress she received negative press for her physical appearance and wasn't prepared for the rumors that accompanied her newfound success. "All these strangers judge you and pick you apart for your hair and makeup," she says. "I didn't sign up for that shit."
