Following in the footsteps of the 1960s queen of raunch, Rusty Warren (Knockers Up!), Lisa Lampanelli has no interest in mimicking the wisecracking, vanilla mainstream gals who are America’s TV darlings. Known for her bawdy and lewd quips laden with racial and sexual stereotypes, Lampanelli is so politically incorrect and vulgar that you either walk out or are overcome by side-splitting howls. As one of the few funny ladies who can take a punch—or a pummeling—Lampanelli is a favorite at any comedy roast, and her once little wave has suddenly morphed into a mighty ground swell; check her out live to experience the typhoon.
