Lampanelli recently appeared on the newest season of NBC’s hit reality show, “Celebrity Apprentice,” alongside the largest-ever lineup of famous faces competing to raise money for a charity of choice. As a final four contestant, Lampanelli raised well over $100,000 for the Gay Men’s Health Crisis.
This equal opportunity offender is a regular on late night television, and a frequent guest and guest host with Howard Stern, who calls her "a true original and a brilliant comedy mind who'll steal the show every time." Her most recent one-hour special, “Tough Love,” premiered on Comedy Central and she remains one of the few white comedians to perform on BET's "Comic View," and the “Wendy Williams Show.”
The multi-talented Lampanelli also penned an autobiography in 2009 called “Chocolate, Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat and Freaks.” She also writes a monthly women’s column in Playboy Magazine.
Her rise to fame began in 2002 when she was the only female comedian invited to roast Chevy Chase on Comedy Central, and has since roasted Pam Anderson, William Shatner, David Hasselhoff, and acted as “Roastmaster” for the highly rated Comedy Central roast of her good friend Larry the Cable Guy.
