You may recognize award winning comedian Lauren Weedman. She was a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. She’s the star of HBO’s Looking. She’s performed at the Seattle Rep. She’s done a ton of other stuff too (check out her bio) I often have mixed feelings about one woman shows, but never when this woman puts on a show. Because she is incredible. She’s talented, sincere, connected, intense, quick, and authentic.
The only thing I’m sad about in regards to her upcoming show “Lauren Weedman: Tits and Sass” is that it’s just one night only. March 19th at Teatro Zinzanni. Yup, that’s this Saturday. But here’s the thing: you might still be able to go, even if you have plans that night…because the show’s at MIDNIGHT! Doors at 10:30 (and if you have time to get there early, do, because it’s a gorgeous venue and such a fun place to share a drink with a friend). Tickets here.
About the show: Lauren Weedman returns to Seattle for one night only to sing songs and tell stories about heartbreak, gay boyfriends, and coffee enemas. The award winning comedic actress, playwright, and author’s newest late night concoction is a high octane, stream of consciousness, gay cabaret as done by a straight woman. The evening includes cover songs by artists like Helen Reddy, Loretta Lynn, Neil Diamond and Ludacris, and features the soulful sounds of Brady Harris on guitar! The Stranger has called Weedman “the funniest woman alive” and LA Weekly says “her self-deprecating humor is not just funny, its excesses contain jaw-dropping revelations on the intersections of passion and fear.”
