Lisa Lampanelli Biography

Best known as 'Comedy's Lovable Queen of Mean,' Lampanelli, a former newspaper and magazine writer, switched from journalism to comedy at age 30 but maintained her keen observational skills. A comic's comic, Lampanelli has compelled comedy great Jim Carrey to say, "By boldly poking fun at everyone, Lisa releases us from a prison of cultural guilt. She's more than a standup. She's a standout." King of All Media and radio pioneer Howard Stern called her "a true original and a brilliant comedy mind who'll steal the show every time." Known for saying things that most people are afraid to think, Lampanelli's raunchy, gut-busting performances are wildly popular at theaters across the U.S. and Canada. This equal-opportunity offender has had several HBO & Comedy Central Specials, was a cast member on NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice," is a regular on late-night television, and a frequent guest and guest host on Sirius XM satellite radio shows. Having earned two Grammy nominations for "Best Comedy Album," Lampanelli's first play, Stuffed, premiered Off-Broadway in 2016.

by Ricky Pope - Dec 30, 2021

New York cabaret is back and in many ways, it is better than ever. We can take pride in a community that is stronger, more supportive, and more diverse than it has ever been. There is, of course, much to do still, but we are on a path that may lead us toward a second ‚Äúgolden age‚ÄĚ of New York cabaret that could rival the 1980s. The signs are all around us. Not only have most of our cabaret rooms survived the pandemic, but we have also seen the birth of new spaces this year. There is more crossover between Broadway and cabaret than we have seen in decades, and thanks to social media, there are more new artists on the scene as well. Even with all the pandemic woes, as Jerry Herman would say ‚Äúthe best of times is now. As for tomorrow, well, who knows‚Ķwho knows‚Ķwho knows?‚ÄĚ
