I really thought it would be a page turner yet I didn’t find lampanelki like that at all. Her jokes in the epilogue were a little too stereotypical, you just feel like most comics have been there, done that joke; however, her dating stories and her stints in rehab are hilarious and make the book a worthwhile read! Aug 10, Alison rated it it was amazing.
She writes well, and is honest about her struggles and sadness. This book never really made me want to read more. By telling her story in a very real, very candid way, Lisa lampanellii her audience that it’s okay to be yourself, even if it’s just one rehab stint at a time.
Showing of 45 reviews. May 12, Rebecca rated it really liked it. I would honestly LOVE to see a great big book of ‘behind the scenes at the roast’ stories with Lisa and some of the others.

That being said, it shouldn’t come as a shock that I adore comedians. Crude, gross, outrageously politically incorrect, and an absolute ball.
There is a lot of terrific material here; funny, insightful, revealing. Check it out if you fall into I knew of Lisa before reading the book, but haven’t really followed her career at all, but still enjoying the book is a testament to how good it is.
After moving together to Connecticut, we grew apart. Which is disappointing because I usually get a good laugh out of her stand-up specials. For the most part I enjoyed her humor and like the snarky attitude and tone to the book. This book is a politically incorrect, totally hilarious memoir about the life of Lisa Lampanelli, and how she finds herself in her mid 40’s.
He started going to the gym more, and work-obsessed me? And, I love her crazy ‘s outlandish housewife dresses. The time she spends in an extreme rehab facility for people with eating disorders is both moving and ppease, and helps highlight how women of all shapes and sizes faces body image challenges in American society. Which, sadly, weren’t all that funny and were very aimless.

If nothing in general offends you when it comes to humor, you will love this book. Oct 01, Jessica Vaughan rated it liked it Recommends it for: Which just made me laugh. Then I saw him less and less. Of course, Lampanelli makes this kind of comedy work by making herself the target as often as she puts the target on someone else’s back.

I’ve really come to like stand-up comedian books, particularly the ones that bridge the gap between chocolahe essays and memoir. This book is hilarious!

It was a list of her “Rules to Live By” which were really, by her own admission, just her opinion on everything she could think of.

Being ‘Lampanelli’ed’ is a verb in our house I may have to find others by the “Queen of Mean”. She’s Comedy’s Lovable Queen of Mean and she sure knows how to tell a story. People like Lisa who make us laugh are worth their weight in gold!

In her jaw-droppingly hilarious and politically incorrect memoir, Lisa chocolat all — including the dysfunctional childhood that made her the insult comic she is today, pleasr subject for which she is best known black men, black men, and more black menand her hilarious struggles with her addiction to food and hot guys.
It feels like those pages were simply tacked on. She knows how to walk the fine line of “rude” and “cruel” so that she can border on a good butt-hurt joke without making someone cry. It’s too bad so many were private events and not available to the public.
