How Raunchy Comedienne Lisa Lampinelli Made A Joke Of The Westboro Baptist Church

Lisa Lampinelli is a stand-up comic best known for her “oh no you didn’t” humor about race and sex. For example, she once called David Hasslehoff’s liver “so black and bloated that it’s banging two of the Kardashian sisters.” Anyway, the Westboro Baptist Church decided to protest her recent Topeka performance because… it was a slow weekend? In anticipation of their colorful “BITCH BURGER” signs, Lampinelli thought, “Well, if they’re going to protest me, how can we turn this into a little bit of love too and kind of turn it on them?” and then promised to donate $1,000 to the Gay Men’s Health Crisis for each church member that showed up. She ended up donating $44,000. But perhaps the funniest part of all is that when she called the WBC members “assholes”, the camera turned to show mostly preteens and some kid who looks like he’s 8. Guess you’re ever too young to start learning bad manners.

      Good on Lisa for turning the WBC’s special brand of hate into a substantial donation to a worthwhile organization.

      Oh, yes, she did.

      To the folks who say “ignore the WBC, you’ll just give them publicity”, I say “shut the fuck up.”

      The WBC is moving into comedy territory. Most people simply switch the channel.

      My goal is to be the first openly-gay YouTuber living out of an SUV cast on Dancing With The Stars.

      One of my dream cast mates would be Lisa Lampinelli.

      LiLamp is a fcuking godess! She never hesitates to state exactaly what most people are thinking……….If you never viewed one of her shows you are missing one of the funniest comics ever…………

      Always been a huge very vocal supporter of the Gays and the fact that she verbally bitch slapped that inbred band of subhuman scum hikes her up a bunch ‘o notches on the Gay icon scale……….

      Yay Rah Lisa for using her platform & her skills to stand up to the crazy mess that is the WBC. For someone so talented, she’s not as well known as she should be.

      Lisa signed my left pec with a sharpie once! (She volunteered to autograph my left arse-cheek, but there were cameras present so I demured. Lesson learned: wear your better briefs to her show, just in case she gets the urge again)

      @jeff4justice: Jeff4justice… why should we really care about your blatant shameless self-advertisement of your dirty hippy ways (I mean living out of your car, not homosexuality) and attempt to garner youtube fans in an effort to petition a television show to cast you?
