The cast explore perceived beauty standards of society through insightful humor and music. The comic heroes of the event have either lost a hundred pounds, want to lose a hundred pounds, helped someone lose a hundred pounds, or are somewhere in between, as they forge ahead on their journeys toward health. Weight is the heart of their comedy, but they guarantee "you'll leave feeling lighter than ever."
