Lisa Lampanelli launches verbal grenades Saturday at Hard Rock Orlando

Lisa Lampanelli, self-proclaimed Queen of Mean, marches onto the Hard Rock Live stage Saturday night and will no doubt own the crap out of it. Don't sit in front if you're sensitive.

Lampanelli is a classic insult comic with the added difficulty of also being female (shades of Ginger Rogers doing everything Astaire did but backwards in high heels): No one ever gave a shit what Don Rickles looked like, but as a woman, Lampanelli gets judged by her looks first. For a long time that meant self-deprecating jokes about no being able to get laid as she was a large-ish, somewhat frumpy lady, but now that she's got money, honey, she's spending it on looking good and, counterintuitively, she's more acidic than ever.

Even if you're not a fan of the exquisite, fiery burns Lampanelli deals out, it's always a joy to see an expert at the top of her game. Take a look at her work below, in clips from the "Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump" and The Wendy Williams Show.
