Rude, crude and socially unacceptable.
Only the first two adjectives in that list describe Lisa Lampanelli, because “Comedy’s Lovable Queen of Mean” has gone mainstream. Without losing a bit of her edge.
We’ve long subscribed to the notion that it’s not fair to laugh heartily at a racial joke then be offended by a gay one. Life is so much more fun in a world of equal-opportunity offenders. It’s here that Lisa reigns supreme.
The comedian has risen to superstardom in the past decade with appearances on The Howard Stern Show, Comedy Central roasts and, perhaps most famously, in the final four of NBC’s fifth- season Celebrity Apprentice where she raised more than $100,000 for her charity of choice, the Gay Men’s Health Crisis.
A sassy mouth and a soft spot for the gays? There’s a lot to love about that always-classic combo, even if there’s less to grab hold of on the now-svelte funny lady.
Witness the magic of mean live and in-person this Saturday at the glorious Majestic Theater. There’s no telling what she’ll say or who she’ll skewer, but it’s pretty much guaranteed that someone in the audience will pee their seat.
Which is why we’ll be wearing adult diapers.
Just in case.
Saturday, March 7 at 8 p.m.
Majestic Theater, Dallas
