Publisher's Summary

As one of America's hottest female comedians, Lisa Lampanelli has earned critical acclaim across the country for her no-holds-barred style and ability to make people laugh at their own stereotypes and differences.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.

Just Like a Sitdown with LL!

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!!
