Lisa Lampanelli is Comedy's Lovable Queen of Mean. Heralded as "more than a stand-up -- 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.
This equal opportunity offender is a regular on late night television, and a frequent guest and guest host on Howard Stern's Sirius satellite radio shows. Lisa recently shot her fifth stand-up special, Back to the Drawing Board, proving this insult comic is new, improved, and funnier than ever. Lampanelli has also parlayed her love of Broadway into her own stage show, Fat Girls, Interrupted.
Lisa became a household name when she joined 17 other celebrities on the fifth season of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice. She is currently starring as a series regular on Bounty Hunters, CMT's first-ever animated show. Lampanelli joined the ranks of comedy greats with her 2009 HBO comedy special, Long Live the Queen, and that same year, released her first autobiography, Chocolate, Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat and Freaks. She recently released her first Greatest Hits album.
She became known as the “Queen of the Roast” after roasting many celebs like: Chevy Chase, Pamela Anderson, Jeff Foxworthy, William Shatner, Flava Flav, and Larry the Cable Guy. 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 the feature film side, Lisa appeared in the David Chase-directed feature film, Not Fade Away. She also appeared in Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector and had a featured role in Delta Farce, opposite Bill Engvall, Larry the Cable Guy, and D.J. Quall. She also starred in the feature film, The Aristocrats and played a more maternal version of herself in the Owen Wilson vehicle, Drillbit Taylor. On a continuous ride to comedic stardom, Lisa has also taped several specials for VH1, MTV, and CMT, and was a featured presenter on the Bravo’s “A List Awards” and the “NewNowNext Awards” on Logo.
