Lisa Lampanelli will perform her stand-up comedy at 7 p.m. Jan. 11 at the Fargo Theatre, 314 Broadway N, Fargo.
Lampanelli has been called comedy’s lovable Queen of Mean and heralded as “more than a standup — a standout,” by comedy legend Jim Carrey.
The insult comic is a frequent participant in celebrity roasts, known for her often vulgar one-liners. Audience members in the first four rows at this show may feel Lampanelli’s wit.
As a staple of the annual Comedy Central roasts, Lampanelli has gotten on stage to take shots at Chevy Chase, William Shatner, Jeff Foxworthy, Pamela Anderson, Donald Trump and Gene Simmons.
Furthermore, as a frequent guest on “The Howard Stern Show,” she’s also roasted fellow comedians Andy Dick and Artie Lange.
Lampanelli’s act often deals with issues of race and sex, saying things aloud that most people are afraid to think.
Lampanelli’s memoir, “Chocolate, Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat, and Freaks,” recalls her childhood as an attention seeker and her addiction to food and black men. She follows her memories of “fat rehab” with a variety of topics, from the Virgin Mary to vegans.
Lampanelli said in a recent interview, “I think it’s what they see on the inside. They know I’m just kidding around. Because if it’s funny — if it’s a good joke, it’s a good joke.”
Tickets for the mature show are $49.50, additional fees may apply.
