She coined the term "Elder Millennial" in her eponymous 2018’s Elder Millennial, which is also the subject of Iliza Shlesinger: Over & Over, her “fan-u-mentary” giving fans an inside look into her life on tour. Her other specials are Unveiled (2019), Confirmed Kills (2016), Freezing Hot (2015), and War Paint (2013). She’s preparing to tape her sixth special this summer. She wrote and starred in the Netflix Rom-Con movie Good On Paper and played opposite Mark Wahlberg in the #1 Netflix film Spenser Confidential.

In March 2020, in response to the pandemic, she and her husband, Chef/James Beard Award nominated author Noah Galuten, launched Don't Panic Pantry as a way to encourage people to stay at home and flatten the curve. The fun, follow-along at-home cooking show streamed live via Iliza’s Instagram and Facebook page with more than 250 episodes. It has been featured on the TODAY Show and The Talk, and has been sponsored by companies like Le Creuset, Dansk, and Bob's Red Mill. The Don't Panic Pantry Cookbook is set to be published in January of 2023 by AA Knopf.
Iliza has completed her second book, All Things Aside (Abrams Books and Blackstone Audio); it will be available this fall. Her first book, Girl Logic: The Genius and the Absurdity (Hachette Book Group) was a subversively funny collection of essays offering her unique perspective on women's behavior. Her podcast, AIA: Ask Iliza Anything, is a fan favorite and features Iliza giving out her barefaced life advice to fans' questions. She recently guest hosted Jimmy Kimmel Live and previously hosted her own limited run late night talk show Truth & Iliza on Freeform. She is the only female and youngest comedian to hold the title of NBC's Last Comic Standing.
