Judi is often compared to the legendary performer Leona Lewis because both have parodied famous figures from their days. Lewis was a pioneer in using her mother’s maiden name in her comedy performances but judi prefers to use her real name. Both women have also said that their respective mother’s maiden name was not meant to be used in their comedy acts. In fact, Lewis once said that her mother felt that her daughter’s stage name was inappropriate for her profession. In addition to her mother’s frustration, Leona also felt that her mother’s name did not fit the character she was playing.
Judi Lewis has been rewarded many times for her work as a stand up comedian. She has received many awards for her work and was even nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her role in Rain Main.
