Now, from the gutter-mouth comedienne who "talks like a truck driver but resembles a '50s housewife" (New York Times) comes her over-the-top, laugh-out-loud memoir, Chocolate, Please.
Often described as "a cross between Don Rickles, Archie Bunker, and a vial of estrogen", Lampanelli has an opinion on every subject under the sun, and she happily dishes on nearly everything - from why all white women should date black men, to the virtues of codependency, to how to turn a stick of butter into parental love and attention - and offers her dangerously hilarious "Rules to Live By", delightedly skewering all topics with equal fervor, herself included.

"Lisa is the most outrageous comic we have ever had on the Tonight Show." (Jay Leno )
"Every generation has a female comic that destroys the conventional wisdom that only men can be raunchy and funny. Lisa Lampanelli is this generation's choice." (Carlos Mencia )
This is just like watching Lisa's show and then going backstage with her and talking about her life and loves. She gets a bit serious and then she sets you up and punches you in the funny bone!! This book made me laugh out loud more than any I have listened to this year. If you have a stick in your proverbial or can't take a joke, pass this one on. If you love Lisa and can laugh at yourself and everyone you know, this audiobook is a must-have. Hearing her majesty, The Loveable Queen Of Mean, read this book is worth the price of the book alone!!
One hundred perscent yes! Just having Lisa reading it makes it a must buy
The insight given on the Comedy Roasts
Realizing that it is not all glamorous, as she looks on her TV specials. She is just as much a human being as any one of us.
I love LL, but this was awful. Her narration seemed odd. I guess I am so used to listening to her standup that this felt like she was reading from a teleprompter. It wasn't funny. There were a couple of times I smiled, but it was rare. I stopped listening after the first chapter because I couldn't take any more. Maybe it got better after that--I couldn't stand to find out.
Well, I believe that this book wasn't wrote to make the audience laugh.. but more to make the audience have a deeper insight into Lisa Lamp's life. She talks a lot about how crazy she is which I didn't find too funny. Her wit is intertwined with her story, but something that would make one smile instead of *LAUGH OUT LOUD.* Though I believe that this isn't a GREAT book, I believe it is a GOOD book. So, basically, buy it if you just REALLY love Lamp and want to know a little about her... But DONT buy it if you just want to "bust out laughing." If you want to "bust out laughing," I suggest Dear Vodka, It's Me Chelsea by Chelsea Handler... It's pretty funny.
This is a crass juvenile rant masquerading as adult humor. Lisa needs to take a leave of absence from her profession, study some of the great masters of humor and grow up. Absolutely do not waste your time or money on this book. A one star rating is too good for this rubbish.
