Grammy Winning Comedienne, Judy Tenuta is the most famous person who has ever lived...and if you don't believe it, just ask her. Judy is a triple threat in the sense that she has strong stage, television, comedy and film credits with a large fan base.  She has appeared in" The Vagina Monologues,"  "Menopause the Musical" both in LA and Chicago, and she's had her own stand-up specials on Showtime, HBO and Lifetime.  Judy was the first female stand-up comic to win "Best Female Comedian" at the American Comedy Awards and is a two-time Grammy nominee for her comedy CDs.  The self-described "Love Goddess" and "Aphrodite of the Accordion" now offers her own unique take on life in a new book entitled "Full Frontal Tenudity." A collection of recipes for food, friends and fun! A kind of “chicken soup for your crotch,” declares Judy.  Judy divulges her deepest secrets, helpful tips, and poignant stories.  Judy says, "You will be transformed from your pupa/larva stage of loneliness, into a great goddess gourmet of ganja. You will spread your wings and be a knoshing nymph, not just in the kitchen, but in every room of your trailer, and maybe even in a Walmart produce section."Ms. Tenuta is preparing for the release of her new book, "JUDY TENUTA: "FULL FRONTAL TENUDITY," in addition to her new movies "Going Down In LaLa Land" with Bruce Vilanch, and the soon to be released "Gibsonburg."  For years women have been discouraged from the "unlady like" practice of joke telling, making for a male-dominated field.  The very idea that women aren't funny seems pretty laughable these days. A new generation of comediennes have been unleashed, who act, perform stand-up, write, and direct-dishing out the jokes, and often with a side of sexy. Judy's stand-up routine is appropriately described as outrageous, mind-blowing comedy.   She recently became an ordained minister, and converts her audiences to her signature religion, "Judyism."  Ms. Tenuta has also been rather vocal in support of the recent remarks made by the President with regard to gay marriage.  Having, in fact, performed several ceremonies as a certified/ordained minister in "Judyism" for both gay and straight couples.  The only difference is that the gay couples have to "love, honor and accesorize." Some of Judy's recnet film roles include:  an ex-show girl turned wedding chaplain on General Hospital, a snobby judge on "Corey in the House" and a featured role in the teen comedy hit, "Material Girls", starring Hillary and Haley Duff and directed by Martha Coolidge.  Judy also produced and starred in her own film, "Desperation Boulevard" about a former child star who stops at nothing to make a comeback. Judy costars with Bruce Vilanch in the Indie film, "Sister Mary." Judy has just completed 2 Independent flims: Playing Zania, a menacing, aging actress in "Going Down in LALA Land". Judy just completed  the role of an overly zealous, in your face Mother  of the star high school pitcher, in the soon to be released, "Gibsonberg", based on a true story.... so watch out, Meryl Streep!
