    I remember discovering lisa and laughing at her shit so hard, being happy for her and the hbo special. Now, crying on the apprentice over victoria, screaming how she's in the top 3 women in comedy today. I'm sure that middle america will really understand her comedy, using all her slang so much. She's trying to bring people together through their differences but not everyone understands this.

    Lisa is funny the first time you see her, then you realize she says the same 12 jokes over and over.

    Adam Corolla is funny on that show.

    Iv'e always enjoyed her Stern appearances, and at first found her schtick hilarious (and because of her apperance shocking).

    However, I recently watched her comedy specials on netflix and her act tends to get old after awhile.

    We get it, you say fag, Reggie, and spic in your more or less fomuliac jokes.

    I still find her humorous as a person, but her comedy act really doesn't seem that much different than what Sal could do

    Lisa blew it when she "graduated" from Comedy Central "Roaster" to "Roast Master". After stating that she would only take Roast gigs as "Roast Master" from then on, CC gave her one chance (Larry the Cable Guy, 2009) and then replaced her with Seth MacFarlane. So much for Roasts, as she won't go back to plain Roaster.

    There is no depth to her act, whatsoever. But that's not the worst of it -- she inserts jokes from her shows, with zero subtlety, into every conversation when she's interviewed on tv & radio. Having said all that, i don't have anything against Lisa Lampanelli -- unlike Kathy Griffin, who i detest. They're both hacks, but Lisa seems like a nice hack.

    Lisa is also a control freak with a very short temper. She should think twice about fucking with Victoria though, I'm sure she's still got "connections" regardless if her father's dead...:secret:
