A night of laughs and heartfelt stories about food, weight, and body issues
Presented in partnership with KUT-FM
Lisa Lampanelli’s Losin’ It! is an intimate collection of humorous observations and real-life stories curated and performed by Lisa and a few of her friends. Inspired by her work with The Moth Radio Hour, Lisa has created a heartfelt theatrical evening focusing on the issues of weight, body image, and “losin’ it!” Performed in the spirit of The Vagina Monologues and Love, Loss, & What I Wore, Lisa and friends enchant theatergoers with hilarious, touching anecdotes about their own weight struggles, and lively audience interaction.
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!
