Lauren Weedman by David Belisle
Good news for New Yorkers. My friend Lauren Weedman will be performing her one woman show, BUST. I missed it when it was in Seattle and I'll miss it in NYC (by three days!). But if you'll be there, you should check it out. She'll make you laugh (and like all my favorite comedy, a little bit sad, too).
BUSTWritten and performed by Lauren Weedman
Directed by Allison Narver / Music by Mark Nichols
"Weedman is a sharp chronicler of the larger social context"Bust goes behind bars and into the echoing chambers of the punishing psyche of former Daily Show correspondent Lauren Weedman. Juggling (sometimes) paying acting jobs and her volunteer gig in the L.A. County Jail, Lauren’s gotten an in-depth look at the L.A. penal system so that you don’t need to! Our heroine brings her humor, energy and biting self-indictment to this intelligent and funny portrayal of incarcerated women and the mixed motives that brought Laurento their door.
"Lauren Weedman is the funniest woman alive"
-The Stranger (Seattle)
"Bust is very very funny; some of it poignant; and it whizzes by in a glimmer"
