An inside look at the life of Comedy's Lovable Queen of Mean, Lisa Lampanelli, as she dishes on everything from relationships, food, and fat to why once you go black, you never go back.

In her jaw-droppingly hilarious and politically incorrect memoir, Lisa reveals all -- including the dysfunctional childhood that made her the insult comic she is today, the subject for which she is best known (black men, black men, and more black men), and her hilarious struggles with her addiction to food and hot guys. By telling her story in her very real, very candid, very open way, Lisa tells her audience that it's okay to be yourself, even if it's just one rehab stint at a time. Lisa also takes listeners behind the scenes at the roasts that have marked her comedy career and launched her into the comedy elite, and reveals the important "firsts" in her career, including her first time on her hero's program, The Howard Stern Show.

Chocolate, Please is a side-splittingly funny portrait of the woman behind the award-winning insult comedy. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Lisa releases us from a prison of cultural guilt. She’s more than a stand-up, she’s a stand-out.”

    Jim Carrey

  • “Anyone who follows late-night television or the comedy-club circuit knows Lisa Lampanelli. This irrepressible Italian-American comic, with her no-holds-barred approach to living large, has won a loyal following for her politically incorrect act that revels in every ethnic and gender stereotype and slur as she races straight to the bottom of vulgarity.” 


  • “Quite funny, and Lampanelli never pulls her punches.” 

    Publishers Weekly

Listener Opinions

    " Love Lisa! She definitely kept with her insult comic style, which is hilarious, but she is also self deprecating, which is charming about her. I was a little disappointed in this book, as I felt it glossed over things in a lot of places, but still a good read if you're an LL fan. "

    " Parts of this are crazy hilarious, other parts boring as hell--didn't give a fuck about her high school years or what her favorite parts of being on celebrity roasts were. I thought that it was pretentious that she quoted her own favorite jokes she made and favorite jokes celebrities made about her......if we were big enough fans, we would have seen the jokes. But there are great stereotypes that are supported in this book and those are one of my favorite types of humor. She makes fun of everyone equally, based on their ethnic background, religion and sexual orientation. She reminded me of my parents, only meaner. "

    " I think her reading it made it a lot better so I'm happy I went with the audio book on this one. It's not as funny as her stand up but it was still pretty funny. "
