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. She has won accolades from The King of All Media Howard Stern, who called her "a true original and a brilliant comedy mind who'll steal the show every time." Known for saying things that most people are afraid to think, Lisa Lampanelli's raunchy, gut-busting performances are wildly popular at theaters across the U.S. and Canada.
Lisa's rise to the top of the comedy food chain began in 2002 when she was the only female comedian invited to skewer Chevy Chase on the NY Friars Club Roast on Comedy Central. She soon became known as the “Queen of the Roast”, going on to skewer such names as Pamela Anderson, Jeff Foxworthy, William Shatner, Flava Flav and most recently, David Hasselhoff.
One of the few white comedians to perform on BET's "Comic View," and the “Wendy William Show,” Lisa has clearly cemented her huge crossover appeal. On a continuous ride to comedic stardom, Lisa has also taped several specials for VH1, MTV, and CMT, and was recently a presenter on the Bravo’s “A List Awards” and the “NewNowNext Awards” on Logo. She currently resides in New York.
