Lauren Weedman may be best known for her work on The Daily Show and Curb Your Enthusiasm, but now this Los Angeles actor is in Portland trying to figure out what makes this place “weird.” Portland Center Stage (pdf) has commissioned Weedman to write and perform a new play, The People’s Republic of Portland, for their the 2012-2013 season. This weekend she’ll be work-shopping it at the Just Add Water Festival.
Where do you think Weedman should go to get content for her new play? What Portland things would make good fodder for her jokes?
