Known as Comedy’s Lovable Queen of Mean and perhaps the world’s greatest insult and roastmaster comic, Lisa Lampanelli never pulls any punches. This equal opportunity offender is a regular on Howard Stern’s Sirius satellite radio shows, and she has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman, Chelsea Lately, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America. She was also a member of the cast of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice, season five.

In 2009, Lisa entered the ranks of comic greats and premiered her first ever one-hour HBO comedy special, Long Live the Queen, to tremendous ratings. That same year, her autobiography, Chocolate, Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat and Freaks, hit bookstores to critical acclaim. Lisa is well-known for her many Comedy Central and Friars Club roasts. She has lambasted Jeff Foxworthy, Pamela Anderson, David Hasselhoff, Betty White, Donald Trump and Flavor Flav to name a few. Plus, she was honored to serve as roastmaster on Comedy Central’s Roast of Larry the Cable Guy.

Lisa’s second one-hour special, Dirty Girl, was nominated for a Grammy Award for 2007’s Best Comedy Album of the Year. And in 2012, Lisa was thrilled to be cast as Aunt Josie in the highly anticipated feature film debut from Sopranos creator David Chase entitled, Not Fade Away, starring James Gandolfini. Lisa also starred as a series regular on Bounty Hunters, CMT’s first-ever animated show.

Brash, bold and never afraid to go blue, comedian Lisa Lampanelli offered a raucous and raunchy performance in her first stand-up special for EPIX. Taped at the Music Hall in Tarrytown, New York, and as Lisa’s fifth comedy special, Back to the Drawing Board, premiered in 2015 on EPIX, and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album of the Year. The set included Lampanelli’s signature brand of insult comedy as well as her personal experiences with weight loss and divorce. Lisa is currently turning the one-woman show about her life into a play about body image and weight issues called Fat Girls Interrupted.
