Lizzy the Lezzy was created by Ruth Selwyn, and is the first lesbian stand up comedy animation. To date, the Lizzy the Lezzy animated lesbian videos have garnered nearly 3 million views. Lizzy started her stand up comedy career on Myspace.com, and as a result of the online lesbian network her videos were spotted by Arlan Hamilton who writes one of the most popular Lesbian blogs on the internet. The publicity from Arlan's article led to The L Word Online suggesting to Ruth that she make a funny stand up video about The L Word. Lizzy was more than happy to oblige and make fun of her favorite lesbians and the video was also posted on AfterEllen.com.
