Bottom line she was very funny, and everyone knew it as all in fun. I think part of the reason the audience enjoys it so much is because there are so very few truly taboo subjects any longer. Hate speech and racism are definitely one though, but it's something no one talks about. To have those kinds of jokes thrown in your face is funny but also kind of freeing. In a way, by laughing at it we're affirming that it is a joke. Don't know if that makes any sense, and I know I'm reading way more into her act that she intends to put there. She's really just a 21st Century Don Rickles.
We had a great night, and we love us our Lisa. Even though she doesn't like to touch the fags because then you can get the AIDS. (Her words, not mine!).
