Elizabeth De Razzo (also credited as Lisa De Razzo) is an American actress best known for her role as Maria in the television comedy series Eastbound & Down, from 2010-2013.
A native of Laredo, Texas, De Razzo knew she wanted to be a performer from an early age when as a teenager she jumped on a bus to try to be an extra on The X-Files, unbeknownst to her mother. After spending the day watching the magic happen, she knew she was hooked.
After relocating shortly thereafter to Los Angeles, Elizabeth began pursuing her career in earnest, dividing her time between theatre and the small screen.
Elizabeth was able to incorporate her first love, singing, in her co-starring role as Estella in the stage production of Real Women Have Curves: The Musical.
She enjoyed featured parts in The West Wing and Six Feet Under, co-starring roles in ER, United States of Tara and Southland, and a guest starring role on Cold Case (that still gets her recognised to this day).
In addition to her busy acting schedule, Elizabeth co-founded the non-profit, IBG Inc. IBG, based in Los Angeles, focuses on utilising the power of philanthropy through the arts to benefit a wide range of organisations worldwide.
IBG acts as a "fundraiser facilitator" for underfunded and start-up charities that would otherwise struggle with the logistics and costs associated with event fundraising.
Inspired by humanitarian contributions throughout the entertainment community, IBG holds events such as plays, concerts, screenings, auctions, et cetera to help raise awareness and funds for selected charities.
Elizabeth has also begun working as an executive producer, completing her first project: a PSA-style tribute commercial, Legendary.
