I am on record as being a fan of that filthy comic Lisa Lampanelli. But her appearance on “The Tonight Show” last night was pretty painful.
Lampanelli didn’t do her standup act. She was there to plug her new book... and to riff repeatedly on her fiancé’s “huge testicles.”
Conan O’Brien seemed uncomfortable, the audience was sometimes silent, and Johnny Carson probably spun in his grave. Wanna see for yourself? Follow this link to Hulu. I got the clip all cued up.
Lampanelli will be on Jimmy Kimmel’s show tomorrow... and will probably be funnier (though she’s at her best totally uncensored).
I didn’t catch Lisa Lampanelli’s HBO special in January. But the audio version of “Long Live the Queen” is available in MP3 form.
It is not a comedy masterpiece, that’s for sure. But I feel compelled to share with you her brief excursion into political humor. Click here to hear Ms. Lampanelli crack on President Obama and Sarah Palin. (Warning: The language gets rough.)
