‘Queen of Mean’ coming to Terrace Theater


Comedian Lisa Lampanelli will be appearing at the Terrace Theater/Long Beach Performing Arts Center on Saturday, June 13 at 8pm.
Known as comedy’s lovable “Queen of Mean,” Lisa Lampanelli rose to the top of the comedy food chain in 2002 when she was the only female comedian invited to skewer Chevy Chase at the New York Friars Club Roast on Comedy Central. She soon became one of the few white comedians to perform on BET’s Comic View, cementing her crossover appeal. A year later, Lampanelli appeared on Comedy Central once again in her back-to-back appearances on Premium Blend and on the highly rated Roast of Jeff Foxworthy, again the only female invited to roast the man of honor.

Since then, Lampanelli has headlined performances roasting such artists as Pamela Anderson and William Shatner. Her 2005 Comedy Central special Take It Like A Man was a huge success, and the CD and DVD release of the same name hit number six on the comedy charts. Her second special, the Grammy Award-nominated Dirty Girl, reached number four on the charts. Lampanelli has been heralded by critics and colleagues alike, and described as a cross between Don Rickles, Archie Bunker, and a vial of estrogen.
“Lisa Lampanelli is known for saying the kind of things that most people are afraid to even think,” said Dan Spellens, Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center’s Director of Theaters & Entertainment. “Her performances are wildly popular, and we are pleased to welcome her to the Terrace Theater.”
