Lisa Lampanelli returns to Tennessee


Lisa Lampanelli bills herself as the Loveable Queen of Mean, a fun and friendly personality who has a witty way with the truth. She brings her popular national comedy tour to Nashville’s Tennessee Performing Arts Center on October 14, 2011 at 8 p.m.

One of the country’s leading female stand-up comics, Lampanelli is known for exploring taboo subjects with her trademark charm. She began her career in New York in the early 1990s, but made her breakthrough in 2002 at the New York Club Friars’ Roast of Chevy Chase. Since then, she’s been an in-demand guest for television programs aired on Comedy Central and HBO. In 2008, she was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album. The next year It Books published Lampanelli’s memoir, Chocolate, Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat, and Freaks.

She recently joined the ranks of comic greats who have hosted their own HBO comedy special. "Long Live the Queen" will be available later this year on CD and DVD.

Tickets may be purchased at a later date in the TPAC Box Office or online. Interested parties can also contact TPAC at 615-782-4040.
