Sit Down/Shut Up!  Royalty joins us this week in-person at an undisclosed studio location, deep in the Valley of Connecticut.  The former QUEEN of MEANing, lets us have it as we weave our way through her advice for comedians, what makes a great, and sh*tty roast joke, an overwhelming amount of digs at some of our friends, and what her brand new live show is all about.   It’s not often that you get a chance to sit face-to-face with a legend - and one of your comedic heroes - and we definitely made the most of the hour.   Obviously, many tears were shed.   We are not worthy. If you are in CT don’t miss Lisa Lampanelli’s SIT DOWN & SHUT UP at Fairfield Theatre Company on April 24th.  It is a hilarious evening of stories, insight, and questionable advice.    If you are not in CT, it’s also available via live stream.  Tickets for both at www.fairfieldtheatre.org For More info check out www.lisalampanelli.com or Instagram @lisalampanelli Thanks to Royal Fox Studio for the hospitality (and incense) IG @royalfoxstudio See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
