Playboy Adds New Columnists

Playboy has added three new columnists to its roster –  Lisa Lampanelli, Nick Tosches and Brooklyn favorite Jonathan Ames. All three have penned books, and Lampanelli has a promising stand-up comedy career.

Lampanelli has appeared many times on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Tosches’ writing has appeared in The New York Times, Vanity Fair and The Village Voice, and Ames, despite being the author of several popular books, might be best known as the creator of the HBO show Bored to Death.

Lampanelli’s “Women” column and Tosches’ “Men” column can be found in the March issue of Playboy, which just hit newsstands. Ames’ first column will be featured in the May issue.

Right now every single male friend of these columnists is sending a “can you get me into the Playboy mansion” text.
