Growing up with all brothers will give a Sicilian girl from Cleveland two things: a great sense of security and an even greater sense of humor (not to mention an unusually high tolerance for toilet seats left in the “up” position). Indeed, actress/comedienne Tammy Pescatelli got her fair share of all three, but her sense of humor is what has made her one of America’s funniest – and hardest working – women of comedy.
Tammy was one of the top finalists on the highly rated NBC reality show, “Last Comic Standing,” beating out thousands for the enviable spot. Tammy appeared recently as a guest on, “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” and has been a featured comic on, “An Evening at the Improv,” National Lampoon’s‚ “Funny Money,” and most recently on Comedy Central’s “The World Stands Up.”
Almost always on the road, Tammy has performed in top comedy clubs throughout North America and spent time entertaining troops in Iraq as well. Tammy is a three-time Addie Award winner, a two-time Cleo nominee and a first-place winner of the, The “Bud Light Ladies of Laffter” competition.
