"Lisa Lampanelli is Comedy\'s Lovable Queen of Mean. Heralded as \"more than a standup â€” a standout,\" by comedy legend Jim Carrey, Lampanelli is a cross between Don Rickles, Archie Bunker, and a vial of estrogen. She even 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.\"
This equal opportunity offender is a regular on \"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno\" and Howard Stern\'s Sirius satellite radio shows. She recently joined the ranks of comic greats and added her first ever one-hour HBO comedy special, \"Long Live the Queen,\" to her resume, with a CD and DVD of the special to follow. In addition, her first book, \"Chocolate, Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat and Freaks,\" will hit bookstore shelves on September 15, 2009. "
