Arguably one of the hardest working women in comedy today, Tammy Pescatelli brings brassy sexiness with a bold voice of witty sarcasm to her audiences, holding her own on the topics of sports, television, dating and family life using tongue-in-cheek humor. She is relatable to every audience member-male & female. After seeing Pescatelli perform, nearly everyone wishes she was their best friend or sister!

Tammy Pescatelli’s “Way After School Special" (2020), was a highly anticipated follow up to Pescatelli’s award winning one hour Netflix special, “Finding the Funny.” In the same year, Pescatelli appeared on the highly acclaimed Showtime Comedy Special, “Women Of A Certain Age 2”.

Signed to Git R’ Done Records, Larry the Cable Guy’s label, Pescatelli took funny back in time with her successful 2019 album release, “#TBT: THROWBACK TAMMY” which debuted at number 2 on iTunes and is in continuous play on SiriusXM and Pandora.

Pescatelli: 'I wake up' to find the funny
