Lisa Lampanelli, a.k.a Comedy s Loveable Queen of Mean, will release Equal Opportunity Offender: The Best of Lisa Lampanelli, her first greatest hits compilation, on April 17th, 2012. The album collects all-time favorite riffs from the woman Howard Stern calls a true original and a brilliant comedy mind. Lampanelli, who is starring alongside Adam Carolla, Arsenio Hall and others on the current season of The Celebrity Apprentice (airing Sundays at 9/8c on NBC), will also be on tour across the country beginning this weekend and continuing through the summer.
Heralded as "more than a standup -- a standout" by comedy legend Jim Carrey, Lampanelli is a cross between Don Rickles, Archie Bunker, and a vial of estrogen. Her raunchy, gut-busting performances are wildly popular at theaters across the U.S. and Canada, and her roasts of Donald Trump, David Hasselhoff, Flavor Flav, and Gene Simmons (among others) are the stuff of which legends are made. A regular on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Howard Stern's Sirius satellite radio shows, Lisa entered the ranks of comic greats in 2009 with the premiere of her first ever one-hour HBO comedy special, Long Live the Queen. That same year, her autobiography, Chocolate, Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat and Freaks, hit bookstores to critical acclaim. Lisa also pens the monthly Women column in Playboy magazine, and in fall 2012, Lisa will bring her talents to Broadway when she mounts her one-woman show, Bring Back the Fat Chick.
