Benefit for Playhouse on Park
A Celebrity Cabaret Show
LISA LAMPANELLI: BIG FAT FAILURE
Join us at Playhouse on Park for a brand-new cabaret show full of humor and heart, created by AND starring comedy icon Lisa Lampanelli! Proceeds will benefit Playhouse on Park.
Lisa Lampanelli may have been a bang-up stand-up comedy success with 5 one-hour specials, dozens of TV appearances, and two Grammy nominations to her credit but, throughout her 61 years, she’s failed A LOT. But her failures, like ours, are things to be embraced, talked about, and ultimately laughed at, and that’s exactly what she does in her cabaret show, “Lisa Lampanelli: Big Fat Failure.” The show is filled with stories and songs (yeah, that’s right, SONGS) in which the former Queen of Mean comes clean about all the things she has f’ed up!
If you’re someone who has screwed up more times than you can count, come see “Lisa Lampanelli: Big Fat Failure.” They say “Misery Loves Company,” but it dies in the face of laughter.

About Lisa Lampanelli
With a career that spanned more than 30 years, Lisa Lampanelli was a constant on the comedy scene. With numerous tours, Grammy nominations, and national TV guest appearances and specials under her belt, Lisa made headlines in 2012 when she lost more than 100 pounds with the help of bariatric surgery. The comedian went on to speak with unflinching honesty about her lifelong food and body-image issues, and prepared to make the transition from insulter to inspirer. She announced her retirement from stand-up comedy on the Howard Stern radio program in late 2018 and planned on dedicating her life to performing in storytelling shows, helping people as a certified life coach, and being a general overall skinny little bad-ass. Then, there was this TINY bump in the road: a freakin’ pandemic. Oh, and the deaths of her mom and her aunt, and the inevitable 20 Covid pounds. So, when Lisa finally lifted her head off the couch and out of her ass as the world started to open up, she took the opportunity to look back on her life, including all the stuff she’d done wrong and what she’d learned from those things. And you know what the biggest lesson was? Come find out…buy your tickets today today to see “Lisa Lampanelli: Big Fat Failure”!
