Lisa Marie Riley was born and raised in Brooklyn.
She has been living on Staten Island for over 10 years now.
She grew up in a fully Italian household that influenced her humor and love for cooking. Her culture and upbringing allowed her to relate to her followers, grow bonds with them and also laugh together.
Lisa is a court stenographer by trade.
She started posting on social media June of 2019, shortly after her husband David's diagnosis. David was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma. A cancer known to be rare and pediatric. It was his first day of chemo when Lisa and her relatives just wanted to cheer him up and make everyone laugh. It soon became an outlet for her and her family to get through hard times and quickly went viral, reaching thousands of people.
A video of her ranting about her husband's torn jeans went viral, and since then Lisa has made countless fans or as she calls them, "her friends" online and in person.
In 2021, Lisa took to the stage and started performing live. Since then, she has had shows in New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Connecticut, Boston, Florida and more.
In 2022, David Riley lost his battle to Ewing's Sarcoma at 40 years old.
Upcoming: She will be performing at The Stress Factory in Bridgeport, CT on November 12th and in Philadelphia at Punch Line Philly on November 20th. In December, she will also be performing in Boca Raton, FL on December 16th and 17th at Boca Black Box.
