Lisa recently competed on the newest season of NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" and is a regular on late night television, and a frequent guest and guest host on Howard Stern's Sirius satellite radio shows. She has also parlayed her love of Broadway into her own one-woman show, Skinny Bitch: NOT A Stand-Up Comedy Show. Lampanelli joined the ranks of comedy greats with her 2009 HBO comedy special, "Long Live the Queen," and that same year, released her first autobiography, Chocolate, Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat and Freaks. As a writer, Lisa also pens the monthly Women column in Playboy Magazine.
Lisa's rise to the top of the comedy food chain began in 2002 when she was the only female comedian invited to skewer Chevy Chase on the NY Friars Club Roast on Comedy Central. She soon became known as the "Queen of the Roast," going on to skewer such names as Pamela Anderson, Jeff Foxworthy, William Shatner, Flava Flav, and David Hasselhoff. Because of her success as a roaster, in 2009 Lisa was asked to be Roastmaster for the highly rated Comedy Central roast of friend and fellow comic, Larry the Cable Guy.
