Comedian Lisa Lampanelli, who is currently touring the U.S. with her one woman stand-up show, will make her first appearance at the legendary Apollo Theater (253 West 125th Street) in Harlem tonight, January 30 at 7pm.
Lisa Lampanelli is hailed as Comedy's Lovable Queen of Mean. Lisa'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 was featured on the most recent season of NBC's Celebrity Apprentice and she appears in the new David Chase-directed feature film, Not Fade Away. Lisa has been heralded as "more than a standup -- a standout," by comedy legend Jim Carrey and 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."
"I don't rap, I can't break dance, and I never won a Source Award... but I'm finally coming to the Apollo Theater!" said Lampanelli.
Tickets are currently on-sale for $59.50 and are available at www.livenation.com, www.ticketmaster.com, or by phone 800.745.3000 and at select Ticketmaster locations.
Hailed as the Queen of Mean, this equal opportunity offender is a regular on late-night television, and is a frequent guest and guest host on Howard Stern's Sirius satellite radio shows and TMZ. In 2011, Lisa appeared in a one-hour special Tough Love which premiered on Comedy Central. 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.
