L.A. comic Mara Shapshay isn't finding her life very funny right now.
On May 29, Shapshay filed a negligence lawsuit in L.A. Superior Court against Jenny Craig, claiming she got 1,000 gallstones after using the weight-loss program.
Shapshay, an L.A.-based stand-up comedian who is also a contributing writer to the Huffington Post, says in the lawsuit that about one year after signing up for Jenny Craig, she "developed severe pain in her right abdomen" that sent her to the emergency room in October 2012.

Pink took a break from mommy duties to perform at Sony Studios in Culver City,Calif., benefitting the Margie Petersen Breast Center at Saint John's Health Center on Monday.
The "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" singer wore a black long-sleeved top and a black leather skirt to perform an 11-song set. The star-studded audience included Heather Locklear, Valerie Bertinelli, Melanie Griffith and Rita Wilson.
"It's been a while since I sang. I'm usually in sweatpants singing 'Shoo Fly, Don't Bother Me,'" joked the mother of 17-month-old old Willow.
Earlier in the night, Locklear and Bertinelli were seen sitting together and chatting in the VIP area close to the stage.
Guests at the event enjoyed hors d'oeuvres by Wolfgang Puck, including tuna tartare, crab cakes, mini sliders, and fire-roasted eggplant tarts, as well as cocktails and Stella Artois.

These days, Valerie Bertinelli is looking good, feeling good and happily married to husband Tom Vitale.
But that wasn't always the case. On an episode of The Dr. Oz Show airing Monday, the Hot in Cleveland star frankly discusses her past drug use and addiction to food.
"[Using drugs] wreaked havoc on [my body], because one day I'm eating a healthy meal and the next day I'm just putting a bunch of white powder up my nose," Bertinelli, 52, tells Dr. Mehmet Oz during the appearance.
Bertinelli blames not taking care of herself on the fact that she had low self-worth. "I'm not being good to myself ... I'm not worth being treated well anyway, so I'll just treat myself even worse," she says. "I'm so glad I'm not that person anymore."

For Valerie Bertinelli, heating up the romance with husband Tom Vitale came down to whipping up a hearty helping of … cold soup.
The 40 lbs. lighter-Jenny Craig success story, 52, already admitted, "The first time I made gazpacho for him, I thought I was going to be made love to the entire night!"
This tomato-based concoction is just one of the healthy (did we say delicious?) recipes included in Bertinelli's new cookbook, One Dish at a Time (available Oct. 16).
"Tom looooooves tomatoes, which is why they appear so often in this book," she writes in the book.
