Podcast episode 226ish: Lisa Lampanelli & Chris Porter
Lisa Lampanelli and Chris Porter are not a comedy team. Nor are they together on this episode. This is a very special two-for-the-price-of-none show. I spoke to Comedy's Lovable Queen of Mean by phone and she explained how she got the nickname and demonstrated why it fits, too. But you can't take her seriously. She's a sweetheart, as you'll hear. Chris Porter I spoke to in person. In his hotel room, as a matter of fact. But don't worry, it was Chris Porter the stand-up comic, not Chris Porter the gay porn star. I learned, among other things, what Chris thinks of alternative comics and hipster rooms. And I learned he, too, does a podcast. It's called Chris Porter's General Store and I've been listening ever since. Check it out. After you're done with this episode, of course.
