Lisa Lampanelli shot her fifth stand-up special, "Back to the Drawing Board," which premiered June 26, 2015 on EPIX and was nominated for a 2015 Grammy Award for "Best Comedy Album." In the special, Comedy's Lovable Queen of Mean showed off her radically different look after having lost more than 100 pounds.
That weight loss, which she has maintained for over four years, inspired her to write "Stuffed" since, having been every size from 2 to 26, she has firsthand knowledge of the food and body-image struggle.
