Lisa Lampanelli: Leaner and Meaner

Friday, May 10, 2013 | 8 - 10 PM

Lisa Lampanelli is comedy's lovable Queen of Mean. Heralded as "more than a standup -- a standout," by comedy legend Jim Carrey, Lampanelli is a cross between Don Rickles, Archie Bunker, and a vial of estrogen. The popular insult comic is a frequent participant in celebrity roasts, known for her searing, often vulgar one-liners. Audience members in the first four rows at this show may feel the burn of Lampanelli's acid wit. As a staple of the annual Comedy Central roasts, Lampanelli has gotten on stage to take shots at Chevy Chase, William Shatner, Jeff Foxworthy, Pamela Anderson, Donald Trump, and Gene Simmons. Furthermore, as a frequent guest on "The Howard Stern Show," she's also roasted fellow comedians Andy Dick and Artie Lange. Lampanelli's act often deals with issues of race and sex in a frank and outrageous way, saying things aloud that most people are afraid to think. Though she's an expert at cutting others down, she's not afraid to poke fun at herself either. Lampanelli's memoir, "Chocolate, Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat, and Freaks," recalls her childhood as an "attention whore" and her addiction to food and black men. She follows her memories of "fat rehab" with a variety of topics, from the Virgin Mary to vegans.
