Lisa Lampanelli at the New Majority Comedy Tour

Comedy’s Lovable Queen of Mean, Lampanelli is just the “special guest” for the New Majority Comedy Tour with Gabriel Iglesias, a Last Comic Standing finalist several years ago and known as the “fluffy” — not fat — comic of Latino descent, and Russell Peters, a popular Canadian comic of Indian ancestry who often pokes fun at the subjects of race, class and culture. While as a white chick she may not technically be part of “the new majority,” Lampanelli is the major draw here, with her racy and raunchy style of comedy popular with gays and other minorities. Friday, June 3, at 8 p.m. Patriot Center at George Mason University, 4500 Patriot Circle, Fairfax. Tickets are $49.50 to $75. Call 703-993-3000 or visit
