Lisa is known as Comedy’s Lovable Queen of Mean. She is referred to as an equal opportunity offender because anyone and everyone are susceptible to her comedic tongue lashings, including herself. She was a regular on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and on Howard Stern’s Sirius satellite radio show. Lisa is well-known for her many Comedy Central and Friars Club roasts. She has roasted numerous celebrities including: Chevy Chase, Pamela Anderson, Betty White, Jeff Foxworthy, and David Hasselhoff to name a few..” She was also a member of the cast of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” Season 5 and roasted Donald Trump as well.

Ethnic humor and racial minority insults, slurs, and stereotypes are a predominant part of Lampanelli’s comedy routine, as is her love of African American men. Lisa has been on the comedy scene for over 25 years. She has had 2 HBO one hour specials, and her second one entitled, “Dirty Girl,” was nominated for a Grammy Award for 2007′s Best Comedy Album of the Year. Lisa began her career as a Fact Checker for Rolling Stone magazine and was a journalist for other music publications before becoming a comedian, but she has not completely left her roots; she has written a book entitled, “Chocolate, Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat and Freaks,” she writes a monthly advice column for Playboy magazine. She has also spent the last 3 years working on her one woman Broadway show “Fat Girl Interrupted” that showcases a side of Comedy’s Lovable Queen of Mean that few would guess exists. It talks about her struggles with food addiction, body image and relationships. It has been receiving standing ovations from audiences across the country.
