Lisa Lampanelli -- Returning to Roast The Hoff

7/15/2010 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned legendary humiliator Lisa Lampanelli will be returning from her "Roast"  hiatus to burn David Hasselhoff at the upcoming Comedy Central special.

Of course, the Queen of Mean was M.I.A. at last year's Joan Rivers roast because she claimed it was "not worth doing if I ain't roastmaster."

But now, sources close to the insult hurler tell us Lampanelli has worked out a pretty sweet deal with the network and will be taping promos for the show later today.

As for what influenced her decision -- we're told it all has to do with, "Great money, a great spot" and "other things that made it worth her while."

Lampanelli is so unfunny it hurts. How did she ever become "famous"? I put her in the same category as Carlos Mencia and George Lopez

Saw Lisa several times. NEVER LAUGHED SO HARD!!!!! She is great and gets away with saying things most people can not. Love this woman and the HOFF can count on getting ripped to shreds from her, and I will be watching and laughing my a$$ off!!!

Hmm...Lisa Lampanelli is back...
Who gives a f*ck?
Hopefully,since she has apparently sworn off screwing Black men (she's engaged to a White guy), she'll finally drop her lame-a*s routines about "bad credit" and "anal sex" being "tha brothas thang."
Those bits were SOOOO "hilarious."

If she's now the "funniest thing" about these "roasts",then maybe it's time to retire them. That's what you do w/ relics,isn't it?

Don't care for Lisa's stand-up comedy, but she is the QUEEN of Roasters and nobody does it better than her! Larry the Cable Guy Roast was hilarious and I'm not even a fan.
