Tammy Pescatelli: Comedienne Tammy Pescatelli is the kind of woman you wish was your sister or your best
friend. Like a good sister, she‘s always ready with a good joke or lively quip. Tammy learned her
funny skills growing up in a large Italian household outside of Cleveland.
Tammy balances her family and her growing career with a lot of laughs on WE tv‘s new reality
series, A Stand Up Mother. The series premiered on January 25th and will return this
summer. Tammy and her husband moved from the city (LA) to the small town of Meadville,
PA to raise their son. In six one-hour episodes, the docuseries follows her life as she juggles a
career as a stand-up comedienne, being a wife and mother, and a large and loud extended family
including her mother-in-law.
On her album, IT IS WHAT IT IS, she uses every bit of her experience to make us laugh about
family, religion, and even politics (her sister thinks Al Qaeda is a guy from the neighborhood.)
But like a best friend, she also gives us great advice on everything from drinking tips to keeping
us grounded (“Just because a man wants to sleep with you doesn‘t mean you‘re sexy. I have
brothers that will hump a couch.“) When people ask her - “Where do you get your material?“
Tammy famously replies, “I wake up!“
