Lisa Lampanelli to Bring New One-Woman Show to Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center, Begin 10/3
Downtown York's historic Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center will host a developmental production of Lisa Lampanelli starring in her new one-woman show, Skinny Bitch: NOT A Stand-Up Comedy Show, in the Capitol Theatre for four shows only: Thursday, October 3 at 8:00 p.m., Friday, October 4 at 8:00 p.m., Saturday, October 5 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, October 6 at 3:00 p.m. Tickets go on sale to Strand-Capitol members on Tuesday, August 13 at 10:00 a.m. and to the general public on Tuesday, August 27 at 10:00 a.m.
Lisa Lampanelli makes a departure from her signature "insult" comedy in her new theatrical production, Skinny Bitch: NOT A Stand-Up Comedy Show, which is written by Lisa Lampanelli and 700 Sundays writer Alan Zweibel, and helmed by Tony Award-winning director John Rando. In her first theatrical production, Lisa Lampanelli will reveal the woman behind the comic, and her struggle with food, men and body image. In turns hilariously funny, surprisingly touching and totally relatable and will show a side to Comedy's Lovable Queen of Mean that few would guess exists. In addition to hosting, the Strand-Capitol is giving developmental support to the production.
Lisa Lampanelli has become a household name as a standout contestant on the fifth season of NBC's Celebrity Apprentice and appeared in the David Chase-directed feature film, Not Fade Away.
