The play "Stuffed" is the brainchild of comedian Lisa Lampanelli, who plays herself. And while the comedy flies fast and furious — and the staging includes giant refrigerators and game-show moments — the show poignantly probes struggles with body image. The show opens this week at New York City's Westside Theatre, and runs through mid-February.

Lampanelli (@LisaLampanelli) joins Here & Now's Robin Young to discuss the show, and her own struggles.

This segment aired on November 2, 2017.
