There is one thing comedians are great at, and that is finding the light in situations that seem dark and hopeless. As part of her brand-new comedy special, No Bad Days, which premieres on Peacock on August 12th, Alyssa Limperis explores the death of her father through a lighthearted perspective.
She says in the special's first look trailer, "My father was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer a year later, and he passed away within one year." She says in the special's first look trailer, "And then, a day later, I went to a cafe, and all of them were out of oat milk. So I was like, 'Pile it on!'"
Limperis will take the audience on a journey of pain and loss while pointing out the beauty in the everyday world, including teaching them the stages of grief and asking them if they feel the presence of their deceased father.
This special is deeply personal to me and I am deeply touched by it," the star wrote in his statement to the press. "I wrote this piece after losing my dad to brain cancer in 2015 during a period of intense grief that accompanied his illness."
As she continued, "this project has been a cathartic way for me to heal and cope with the changes in my life, and it will be a powerful means to heal my heart through laughter."
In addition to his lead role as an executive producer, the Los Angeles-based comedian also shares the role with Michelle Caputo, Shannon Hartman, Jennie Church-Cooper, and other talented women. At the end of the trailer, she says, "His death changed me". She also states that "we should live each of our days to the fullest."
