Lori Beth Denberg
Lori Beth Denberg (born February 2, 1976) is an American actress and comedian. She is best known for her work as an original cast member of the Nickelodeon sketch comedy series All That and for her role as Lydia Liza Gutman on The WB sitcom The Steve Harvey Show.
Denberg was born February 2, 1976 to a Jewish family in the Northridge section of Los Angeles, California. She began her career appearing on Nickelodeon's All That (from 1994 to 1998), the first three seasons of Figure It Out as a regular panelist (from 1997 to 1998), and then The WB's The Steve Harvey Show (from 1998 to 2002).
On Figure It Out, Denberg had a knack for guessing the correct answer just before the contestant could win the grand prize, often even before the end of the second round, as her questions and guesses were more serious and better thought out, as opposed to the sillier questions and guesses that other panelists (particularly Kevin Kopelow and Danny Tamberelli) would give.
She appeared in the 1997 film Good Burger with fellow All That castmates Josh Server, Kenan Thompson, and Kel Mitchell. She had a minor role in the film Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story in 2004, playing cheerleader Martha Johnstone.
Denberg reunited with her All That cast members for the 2011 Comikaze Expo. She joked at the expo that she was now "living out her old age." She made a brief cameo in a 2012 episode of Workaholics as herself.
In February 2018 she joined fellow All That castmates for a semi-reunion on the MTV show Wild 'N Out, which aired the following month. She also appeared in an episode of Double Dare that pit Thompson against Mitchell to assist in the demonstration of physical challenges.
In December 2018, Denberg appeared in “Discontinued”, a special hosted by YouTube star Andre Meadows. The special looks at the rise and fall of the world's most famous discontinued foods, toys, customs, and businesses.
