Lisa Lampanelli is known for bringing down the house as a regular performer on Comedy Central's Roasts, and now she is bringing her unique brand of humor to the first Female Stand Up Comedy Series on the Vegas Strip - Lipshtick: The Perfect Shade of Stand Up.
The Vegas Strip isn't a boys club anymore. The newly branded resident comedy series marks the first time in the storied entertainment history of Las Vegas that a comedy stage will be taken exclusively by female performers. Lampanelli, who's currently working on her one-woman Broadway show, Fat Girl: Interrupted, will headline a rotating roster of comedy all-stars that includes Joy Behar, Whitney Cummings, Caroline Rhea and Wendy Williams among others.
The new series was designed to appeal to a target audience of couples, groups and bachelorette celebrants out for a uniquely Vegas good time. It also creates an entertainment-driven destination that focuses on female branding and style while setting The Venetian apart from competitors.
