WHO IS SHE: Nicknamed “The Loveable Queen of Mean,” comedienne Lisa Lampanelli worked for various magazines as a journalist before finally embarking on a career as a stand-up comic in the early 1990s. Her big break came in 2002 at the Comedy Central roast of Chevy Chase, where she delivered a hilarious monologue. She went on to star in the roasts of Pamela Anderson, Jeff Foxworthy and William Shatner, as well. She is a frequent guest on “The Howard Stern Show” and has appeared in films such as “Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector” and “Delta Farce.”
WHAT TO EXPECT: Lampanelli follows in the tradition of Don Rickles as an insult comic but with an extremely vulgar side. Several of the consistently male-dominated N.Y. Friars Club Roasts have featured Lampanelli as their only female comic, and she has responded by absolutely bringing the house down. She holds nothing back, holds nothing sacred and delivers punch lines with ferocity unlike any of her contemporaries. This is not a show for prudes or those who are easily offended.
SHOW INFO: Tickets are $49.50, $55.50 and $59.50, and the show begins 8 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 16, at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Event Center.
