|“When I was pregnant, my agent said, “Your career is over! I have never seen a pregnant woman on stage.” I said, ‘Apparently you have never been to a really bad strip club!’”.|

|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. Tammy learned her funny skills growing up in a large Italian household outside of Cleveland.
On her album, IT IS WHAT IT IS, she uses every bit of her experience to make us laugh about family, religion, and even politics (her sister thinks Al Qaeda is a guy from the neighborhood.)
But like a best friend, she also gives us great advice on everything from drinking tips to keeping us grounded (“Just because a man wants to sleep with you doesn‘t mean you‘re sexy. I have brothers that will hump a couch.“) When people ask her – “Where do you get your material?“ Tammy famously replies, “I wake up!“
Tammy‘s recent 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.
She was also featured weekly as part of the “Fashion Police“
She co-stars in the upcoming indie films “Everybody Wants to Be Italian”, “Single“, and “Made in Brooklyn.”
Tammy currently tours the country promoting her latest comedy album, “Finding the Funny”.
