Catie Lazarus Death -Obituary – Dead : Catie Lazarus has Died .
Catie Lazarus has died , according to the following statements posted on social media on December 14. 2020.
Kevin Allison 2 hrs · 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. (Sorry no photo credit! Couldn’t find one.)

I am heartbroken to report the loss of my friend Catie Lazarus. Publicly, Catie was the Dorothy Parker of our community, but privately she was even more thoughtful, sensitive and hilarious than most people knew. She was as fearless and irreverent interviewing her heroes (Gloria Steinem, Jon Stewart, David Simon to name a few) as she in the face of a terminal illness. She was incredibly loving and loyal to those closest to her and never let you leave the room without telling you that she loved you. She never gave up on any of her dreams, though I worry she rarely realized how many of them had come true without her noticing. She loved sushi and was the only person I know who wrote with more typos than I did. I will miss her typos, her alarming laugh, her immeasurable maternal love for her dog and the way she could bring a room full of strangers together and turn it into a show. She was one of a kind and she will not be replaced.

I was the Shaffer to Catie’s Letterman and everything she brought to the stage and the world was joy, laughs, and selflessness. May she inspire others.
