Comedian Lisa Lampanelli hopes to come to Broadway with a currently untitled one-woman show, according to New York Magazine. Lampanelli is working with Alan Zweibel, who collaborated with Billy Crystal on the 2004 smash hit 700 Sundays, and staged a reading of the piece on July 6.
"Our top-secret reading. Isn't that exciting?" Lampanelli told the magazine. "It's something that I haven't done yet. I'm scared to death because I have to talk about the real stuff. Like, no stand-up; there's not one line of stand-up...it's pretty much going to focus on my two main obsessions in life, which are men and food. And now that I'm married, I only have one obsession, food, so I'm going to stick to that."
Lampanelli is largely known for her frequent appearances on Comedy Central's Friars Club Roasts. Her many comedy TV specials include Lisa Lampanelli: Dirty Girl, Lisa Lampanelli: Long Live the Queen and Lisa Lampanelli: Take it Like a Man. Her film and TV credits include Reno 911, Drillbit Taylor, Delta Farce and The Aristocrats. She is also the author of the book Chocolate Please: My Adventures in Food, Fat and Freaks.
