Mel Brooks famously said that tragedy is getting a paper cut and comedy is watching someone fall in a manhole, which explains why most tragicomedies are about mole people paying their bills. Enjoy aboveground laughs with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $26, you get one parterre or mezzanine ticket to see Lisa Lampanelli at the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods in Mashantucket on Friday, December 16, at 8 p.m. (up to a $53.50 value, depending on seating and including ticketing fees).
Celebrated insult comic Lisa Lampanelli flaunts her crown as comedy’s cheeky queen of mean in a night of eviscerating, adults-only standup. Her ubiquity as an acclaimed author, Playboy columnist, and Grammy nominee for her comedy album, Dirty Girl, hasn't dulled the sting of her razor-tongued wit, catching her plentiful targets and audiences perpetually off-guard. Notorious for ego-slaying skills that steer Comedy Central’s successful Roast series, Lisa’s wry wit draws rich laughs at the expense of others as she breaks taboos like a bull in a taboo shop. Catalogued in press across the nation, Lisa’s charming chop busting has earned her the respect and quivering fear of her comedy peers.
