Lisa Lampanelli is a stand-up comedian from Trumbull, CT whose irreverent brand of comedy tries its hardest and mostly succeeds at casting her as one of the more controversial figures on the US comedy scene today. Now a regular guest at the New York Friar's Club Roasts for her particularly biting, insult-driven comic style, her big break in comedy actually occurred during one of her first Roast performances for Chevy Chase in 2002. It wouldn't take long of Lampanelli to begin capitalizing upon her success as a roaster par excellence, beginning with a series of specials on cable TV and DVD that would further entrench the comedian into the consciousness of mainstream comedy audiences.
