The queen of mean

Comedian Lisa Lampanelli hits Redwood City

She's known as the "queen of mean" and hailed as a top practitioner of insult comedy (her URL's actually insultcomic.com). This Saturday, Sept. 19, comedian Lisa Lampanelli comes to Redwood City's Fox Theatre, 2215 Broadway, with shows at 7 p.m. and 10:15 p.m.

On her national "Leaner Meaner" tour, the fearless social commentator pulls no punches in her blend of poignant confession and hilariously offensive humor.

Though she's enjoyed recent media buzz for her 100-pound weight loss, funky haircut and divorce, what makes Lampanelli truly unique is her style of lambasting public figures from Pamela Anderson to Donald Trump. Don't miss this unleashing of riotous off-color jokes. Tickets are $31-$69. For more information, go to foxrwc.com or call 650-369-7770.
