Adrienne Iapalucci



Born and bred in the Bronx, Adrienne Iapalucci's skewed look on life is reflected in her unique brand of intelligent comedy. Her dark sense of humor is enhanced by her political incorrectness, and counteracted by her love of puppies.


Comedy fans might recognize Adrienne by her performances as a semifinalist on season 7 of NBC's Last Comic Standing.


In 2009, Adrienne won the First-ever People's Choice Opening Act Competition, and got the opportunity to perform at NYC's Town Hall Theater for 1400 people as part of the New York Comedy Festival. She was also a semifinalist in "New York's Funniest Stand-Up Contest", also part of the New York Comedy Festival, and was the runner-up in the 2009 New York Underground Comedy Festival's "Best of the Boroughs" contest.


Adrienne has been featured in the Daily News, New York Times, Stage Time Magazine and was featured in Reader's Digest in the summer of 2010. Later on that summer Adrienne made her International debut as part of the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal.


Adrienne can be seen performing throughout New York City, as she always pushes herself to become a better comedian.
