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
