The healing power of comedy is not limited to one.

Alyssa LimperisShe brings the laughters to her Peacock Comedy Special Bad Days are rareThis special will premiere on August 12. But the comedian hopes the special’s subject matter—the death of her father—will inspire viewers going through their own experiences with loss.

“The best part of any show is having someone come up to me and just sharing their experience with me,” she exclusively told CelebHomes News. To me, I believe that giving people the space to feel comfortable with their grief is what they will get out of it, in whatever way, is the best thing.

Writing the special—which she began working on after her father died of brain cancer in 2015—helped Limperis release pent-up emotions, as she told CelebHomes News, “I have to share what I just went through and that’s where the show began from. In that sense, it was very cathartic.”
