Season 2 of the Comedy Zone continues with special guest Tammy Pescatelli
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!”
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. She is currently touring around the country with “Dirty Sexy Funny” and was recently on “The View.” She also appeared on Howard Stern.

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.”
