Even kinda horrible insult comics are human....
...and Lisa has a very human story to tell. She tells it very well and Eugene Mirman wisely just gets out of the way for the most part. In other tellings of this story you can find on the interwebz, I was disheartened to see people rip her apart because a) she chiefly lost weight through bariatric surgery, and b) she tells offensive, insulting jokes. She does. I'm not okay with a LOT of her material. But none of that is in play here, and just as we are all imperfect, multi-faceted human beings, Lampanelli is too. This sad, relatable story will likely inspire positive change in more than one listener.
