Over the past few years, Lisa Lampanelli has undergone a transformation. Aside from losing more than 100 pounds, the comedian, who first made her way into our hearts by massacring helpless celebrities during the annual Comedy Central Roasts, has branched out and become a reality television star on The Celebrity Apprentice, a cartoon bail bondsman on CMT's animated sitcom Bounty Hunters, and even the star of her very own one-woman show, Skinny Bitch: NOT a Stand-Up Comedy Show. But this weekend, "Comedy's Loveable Queen of Mean" will get back to doing what she does best when she brings an all-new set of fearless, cut-to-the-bone jokes to Mystic Lake Casino as part of her "Leaner, Meaner" tour. If you've ever seen Lampanelli's comedy, then you know that no race, gender, or sexual orientation is safe from her wrath, and that no topic is considered off-limits. Still, her personality and connection with her audience have made her one of the most beloved and popular comics ever. And if you haven't seen her comedy before, here's a recent tweet she sent out to give you an idea of what you're in for: "Dead recluse eaten by own house cats. If they ate her pussy, would they be considered cannibals???" You've been warned.
