Comedy is mostly a boys club, but Lisa Lampanelli, "The Queen of Mean," proves she's got a big pair - of ovaries, that is. The raunchy comic is a cross between Don Rickles, Archie Bunker and a fat, horny, foul-mouthed stripper.
On her husband: "I call him Jimmy Big Balls because every time I fondle one I feel like Kobe Bryant warming up for a foul shot."
On sex: "I should not have to spritz my inner thigh with barbeque sauce to get the job done."
On weight: "Ladies never go on a diet with a guy because they lose weight and you stay the fat whore you always were."
On The Jersey Shore: "Can you imagine buying The Situation's CD? I'd be less embarrassed buying child porn and vaginal itch cream."
Lampanelli exploded onto Comedy Central in the early 2000s with her infamous roasts of Chevy Chase, Jeff Foxworthy and Pamela Anderson. After a series of succesful stand-up specials, Lampanelli released her autobiography, Chocolate, Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat and Freaks. These days, she writes a column for Playboy. On February 19, she'll appear on The Celebrity Apprentice, and this fall she's set to take Broadway by storm with her one-woman show Bring Back the Fat Chick.
Lisa Lampanelli will perform tonight, Fri, Feb. 3, at INB Performing Arts Center, located at 334 W. Spokane Falls Blvd., at 7 pm. Tickets are $37.75. Call 279-7000 or visit inbpac.com for more information.
