The show was terrific. We enjoyed her immensely. The seats are very tiny and they need a screen so the mezzanine people can acctually see her face. Getting to the area is a nightmare and they didn't start until 8:30. We got there at 7:00 as...continued
Lisa Lampanelli is Comedy’s Lovable Queen of Mean. Able to get away with saying anything, according to NY Friars Club Dean Freddie Roman, Lampanelli conquered the club scenes in both New York City and Los Angeles in a few short years. A cross between Don Rickles, Archie Bunker, and a vial of estrogen, she even won accolades from The King of All Media, Howard Stern, who described her as “a REAL funny broad.”
Lisa is a regular on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and Howard Stern’s Sirius satellite radio show. She appeared on Comedy Central’s “Last Laugh 2005” and her headlining performances on the Comedy Central roasts of Pamela Anderson and William Shatner received national attention. Lisa’s 2005 one-hour special, “Take It Like a Man,” was a hit with the comedy network yet again, and the CD and the DVD of the same name hit #6 on the comedy charts. Now, Lisa’s second one-hour special, “Dirty Girl,” is set to be released in January 2007 on Comedy Central and Warner Bros. Records.
All of this began in 2002 when Lisa was the only female comedian invited to skewer Chevy Chase on the NY Friars Club Roast on Comedy Central. She soon became one of the few white comedians to perform on BET’s “Comic View,” cementing her huge crossover appeal. A year later, she rocked Comedy Central once again in her back-to-back appearances on “Premium Blend” and on the enormously rated, “Roast of Jeff Foxworthy” — again, the only female invited to roast the man of honor.
Lisa has also taped several specials for VH1, MTV, and CMT, and was featured on the “Best of” episode of Comedy Central’s “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn.” With frequent spots on XM and Sirius satellite radio, Lampanelli is selling out shows in theaters across the country. Lisa starred in “Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector,” in which she played a foul-mouthed dirty broad, and she also starred in the feature film, “The Aristocrats,” in which she played a foul-mouthed dirty comic. She will also appear in the feature film, “Delta Farce,” starring Bill Engvall, Larry the Cable Guy and D.J. Qualls, which is set for release in the first quarter of 2007. And she will play a more maternal version of herself in the Owen Wilson vehicle, “Drillbit Taylor,” which will have a Christmas 2007 release.
