Controversial stand-up comedian whose routines often revolved around insulting celebrities and various minorities. She was a contestant on The Celebrity Apprentice 5 and her one-woman show, Bring Back the Fat Chick, premiered on Broadway in 2012.
She attended Boston College, where she studied journalism; she later entered a graduate program at Harvard before becoming a Popular Mechanics copy editor.
She once claimed that her style was almost exclusively influenced by Dean Martin during his roasts, as she never watched other comics perform; she herself was a member of several roast panels, including for Denis Leary, William Shatner, and Donald Trump.
She married her second husband, Jimmy Cannizzaro, in 2010, though she claimed she was still friends with her first husband.
She and Kathy Griffin both made a fantastic living insulting other celebrities and marginalized members of society.
