Lisa Lampanelli makes a departure from her signature “insult” comedy in the developmental production of her new one-woman show Skinny Bitch: NOT A Stand-Up Comedy Show.
The production, which is written by Ms. Lampanelli and 700 Sundays writer Alan Zweibel, will be helmed by Tony Award-winning® director John Rando. In her first theatrical production, Lisa will reveal the woman behind the comic, and her struggle with food, men and body image.
In turns hilariously funny, surprisingly touching and totally relatable, Skinny Bitch: NOT a Stand-Up Comedy Show will show a side to Comedy's Lovable Queen of Mean that few would guess exists.
Lisa has become a household name as a standout contestant on the fifth season of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice and for famously roasting everyone from Betty White to Flavor Flav. Lisa appeared in the David Chase-directed feature film, Not Fade Away and is currently starring as a series regular on Bounty Hunters, CMT’s first-ever animated show, airing Saturdays at 10 pm ET/PT.
This Grammy-nominated equal opportunity offender is a regular on late-night television, the Comedy Central Roasts, and is a frequent guest and guest host on Howard Stern's Sirius satellite radio shows. Lisa has also appeared on EXTRA as a guest correspondent, is a frequent guest and co-host on TMZ, and has sold out theaters across the country, including NYC's Radio City Music Hall, the Chicago Theatre, and Carnegie Hall. Lampanelli joined the ranks of comedy greats with her 2009 HBO comedy special, Long Live the Queen, and that same year, released her autobiography, Chocolate, Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat and Freaks. Lisa's greatest hits CD, Equal Opportunity Offender, was released in April 2012.
