Lisa Lampanelli to Perform at The Pearl at The Palms Jan. 14, 2012

November 4, 2011 by  

Comedy’s loveable Queen of Mean returns to the Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort on Saturday, Jan. 14, at 8 p.m. Heralded as “more than a standup — a standout,” by comedy legend Jim Carrey, Lisa Lampanelli is a cross between Don Rickles, Archie Bunker and a vial of estrogen. She has won accolades from The King of All Media Howard Stern, who 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. She recently appeared in her latest one-hour special “Tough Love,” which premiered on Comedy Central and is now available on CD/DVD. Continuing her rise, Logo television has recently given a green light to developing “Big Loud Lisa” – the unscripted series to be produced by Chelsea Handler’s production company. The show will follow Lampanelli in standup as she juggles her recent marriage with her life on the road. She is also currently working on a one-woman show for Broadway with plans to debut in 2012. Hitting the big screen, Lampanelli will appear in a David Chase-directed feature film (yet to be titled), scheduled for release in October 2012.

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 soon became known as the “Queen of the Roast” with roasts of such names as Pamela Anderson, Jeff Foxworthy, William Shatner, Flava Flav and most recently, David Hasselhoff. Because of her success as a roaster, in 2009 Lampanelli was asked to be Roastmaster for the highly rated Comedy Central roast of friend and fellow comic, Larry the Cable Guy. 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.

This event is produced by Andrew Hewitt and Live Nation. Doors at the Pearl will open at 7 p.m. and show time is 8 p.m. The Pearl Box Office is open daily from noon until 7 p.m. with extended hours on select event days. The Pearl is sponsored by Citi and is now on Twitter. Please follow @PearlatPalms for concert announcements and event information.
