Who Is Lisa Lampanelli
Self-proclaimed “Queen of Mean” Lisa Lampanelli is a popular insult comic and frequent participant in celebrity roasts. Known for crafting cutting, often vulgar one-liners, Lampanelli is an old-school comic (influenced by comedians like Don Rickles and Richard Pryor) with a more contemporary command of filthy language and blue material. Her act often deals with issues of race and sex in a frank and outrageous way. Though she’s an expert at cutting others down, she’s always quick to get in a self-deprecating joke, too.
