Reacting to her death, Creator and owner of the Story Studio, Kevin Allison described Cate Lazarus as a brilliant producer, performer and interviewer.

Man oh, man. I’m heartbroken to hear we’ve lost Catie Lazarus. Catie was one of the first guests on RISK! and was the most charming, kind, honest, smart, and generous of souls. A brilliant, producer/performer/interviewer and always illuminating to talk to. I’ve always really appreciated the rare folks in show business who, when you ask, “Wait. how do you do it?” will sincerely have a heart to heart with you about managing these crazy careers we carve out. Catie was one of those people. I believe she was working on a book. I hope we do get to see some or all of it!

Catie will sure be missed by the whole community. She was loved and admired by so many of us. Always a delight. May she rest in peace; He wrote on Facebook.

Catie Lazarus Education

Lazarus received her Masters of Arts and Bachelor of Arts from Wesleyan University. She was studying for her doctorate in clinical psychology— until she met Tina Fey. While researching Mean Girls, Tina Fey (alongside Jack McBrayer) taught a little improv to Catie and several others at an Empower Program event, an organization which worked on bullying to sexual harassment and violence issues, where Lazarus had worked.

She dropped out of her doctoral studies, moved to New York, started taking improv classes, and hopped on a stage for the first time at Stand-Up New York, where she won a contest she hadn’t even entered. Lazarus landed on the cover page of a local paper and the rest is herstory. Lazarus lives in Brooklyn with her dog Lady Lazarus.
