Comedian Tammy Pescatelli is the kind of woman you wish was your sister or your best friend. Like a good sister, she‘s always ready with a good joke or lively quip. Pescatelli grew up in a large, crazy, Italian family outside of Cleveland and went on to marry into an even larger, crazier, Italian family and has a little boy that she named after her husband-’just to prepare for Alzheimer’s!”
When people ask her – “Where do you get your material?” She famously replies, “I wake up!”
Her most recent 1 hour special, “Finding the Funny” was released recently in an exclusive deal with the trailblazing company, NETLFIX. Pescatelli’s eye for actually finding the funny in all situations, is what is already bringing the project critical acclaim from fans and peers alike. “Finding The Funny” reached #3 on ITunes. Her reality series, A Stand Up Mother (which she co-created, executive produced, wrote and starred in) on WEtv, documented her life as she balanced her family and her growing career with a lot of laughs.
Being one of the Final Five on NBC‘s “Last Comic Standing 2“ catapulted Pescatelli’s career and won her a slew of new fans, solidifying her as one of the sharpest women in the comedy world. She was recently chosen by Jenny McCarthy’s to be part of her “Dirty, Sexy Funny” comedy special that aired on Epix on February 14th. She is currently touring around the country with “Dirty, Sexy, Funny” and was recently on “The View.” She also appeared on Howard Stern.
Pescatelli won “Comedy Central‘s 2010 Stand-Up Showdown” and has appeared as a guest on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” several times. She recently appeared on “The View,” was also part of Fuel Tv’s Redbull Roast for professional wakeboarder Parxx Bonifay, on BRAVO TV’s “Rocco’s Dinner Party,” CBS’s “The Talk,” Nickeloden’s “NICK Mom’s Night Out,” TVGuide’s “Stand-up in Stilettos,” The Artie Lange show, Opie and Anthony, NBC‘s “Last Comic Standing: The Best of the Best,” Comedy Central‘s “The World Stands Up, The Bonnie Hunt Show,” “TBS‘s Evening at the Laugh Factory,” “Last Call with Carson Daly,” and “Comics Unleashed.” She has made numerous appearance on the CBC’s hit show “The Debater’s” as well as the “Jerry Lewis Telethon” and was chosen for their “Best of the Best“ worldwide top selling DVD! Tammy has also made more than 100+appearances on “talking head” shows on VH1, CMT, MTV, E!, A&E, REELS, TVGuide and many more and had her own “Comedy Central Presents.”
She was also featured weekly as part of the “Fashion Police” panel for US Weekly. She gave the pros a run for their money in the poker department and participated in the GSN poker series “Poker Royale: Comedians vs. Pros.” She finished in second place after beating all of the comedians and all of the pro’s but one. A regular on USO Comedy tours, Tammy has entertained our troops all over the world.
She co-stars in the sleeper hit “Everybody Wants to Be Italian,” “Single,” and in the award winning indie film “Made in Brooklyn.”
On her previous album, IT IS WHAT IT IS, she used every bit of her experience to make us laugh about family, religion, and even politics (her sister-in-law thinks Al Qaeda is a guy from the neighborhood.)
Tammy currently tours the country promoting her latest comedy DVD, “Finding the Funny.”
