About Lisa Lampanelli: 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 recently appeared in her latest one-hour special "Tough Love" which premiered on Comedy Central and is now available on CD/DVD. Cementing her rise, Lisa recently joined 17 other celebrities on the newest season of NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice." The fifth installment of the show, with the largest-ever lineup of famous faces competing for charities of their choice, was a ratings bonanza for NBC. As a final four contestant, Lisa raised well over $100,000 for the Gay Men's Health Crisis.
