How funny do you think a cross between Don Rickles, Archie Bunker and a vial of estrogen would be? Makes you think, doesn’t it? Experience the answer to that question on Friday, Feb. 3 at 8 p.m. with Lisa Lampanelli at Silver Legacy’s Grande Exposition Hall.
Lampanelli is one of the most high-profile insult comics today, known for her outrageous pot shots at celebrities and for saying things that most people are afraid to think. Her raunchy gut-busting performances are wildly popular, plus she can dish it out AND take it. As a regular on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and Howard Stern’s radio show, Lampanelli’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 is also one of the few white comedians to perform on BET’s “Comic View.”
The comedy powerhouse also appeared on “Comedy Central’s Last Laugh 2005” to great acclaim followed by her headlining performance on the Comedy Central roasts of Pamela Anderson and William Shatner that received national attention. Her one hour special, “Take It Like a Man,” was a hit and the CD and DVD of the same name placed #6 on the comedy charts. Following this, in 2007, was her second hour long special titled “Dirty Girl,” that reached #4 on the comedy charts and earned a GRAMMY Award for 2007’s Best Comedy Album of the Year.
