Losing It! with Nelsie Spencer Life lessons from some of my favorite losers!
The show is funny, wildly irreverent, mixed with heart and some self-help thrown in. It’s part interview part storytelling. Each week I hang out with my guest – actors, comics, film directors, writers, etc. - for a bit, we get to know each other a little, then it’s time for the “losing it” story, (their hair, a wedding ring, a parent, their serotonin, whatever). It might be a “good” Losing It story – “I lost 100 pounds!” or a “bad” Losing It story – “I lost 100 lbs. of cocaine that belonged to the mob!” In either case, there’s usually a lesson learned. And, with me in charge there’s also quite a few laughs!
Storytelling and laughter are two of my favorite survival skills; sharing my stories, struggles and traumas with a friend, therapist, or an audience has saved my life in many ways. As a "mature" woman who’s survived a not-so-perfect childhood and is on a life-long quest to find happiness and fulfillment, I have some pretty wild stories of my own (and some wisdom to share as well). Through Losing It! I want to share all that I’ve learned so far, keep learning, from my amazing guests, and make people laugh in the process.
