Lisa Lampanelli's Losin' It
LISA LAMPANELLI’S LOSIN’ IT!, an intimate collection of humorous observations and real-life stories, is curated and performed by LISA and her hilarious friends. In a departure from the insult comedy she’s long been known for, LISA has created a heartfelt, funny theatrical evening focusing on issues of weight, body image, and “losin’ it!.” Obsessed with food for as long as she can remember, LISA has lost and gained more than 372 pounds over the course of her life. Performed in the spirit of The Vagina Monologues and Love, Loss, & What I Wore, LISA and friends enchant theatergoers with touching anecdotes about their own weight struggles, spiked with Lisa’s cutting-edge humor.
“I decided stand-up comedy really wasn’t for me anymore. It wasn’t making my heart happy. So, I created LOSIN’ IT!, a show using comedy to talk about weight and body issues, which are things I’ve struggled with for years. This is so much more fulfilling!” - Lisa Lampanelli
