      Birthday: Mar 5, 1969

      Birthplace: Indianapolis, Indiana, USA

      Lauren Weedman was born in 1969 in Indianapolis, IN. Several years after graduating from DePaul University in Chicago, IL, Weedman moved to Seattle, WA, where she began her career as a playwright and performer. Her first big hit was the one-woman show "Homecoming," a chronicling of the adopted Weedman's search for her biological parents, which she penned and brought to the Seattle Repertory Theatre in 1997. By 2000, Weedman relocated to New York City, bringing the play with her for an Off-Broadway tour; the production lasted until 2002, allowing Weedman to explore additional stage projects, such as "Amsterdam the Musical" and "They Got His Mouth Right," in the interim period. At the same time, Weedman made her television debut with a correspondent position on the political satire program "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central 1996-). The gig led to bit parts on comedic series like "Reno 911!" (Comedy Central 2003-09) and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (HBO 2000-). In 2007, Weedman published her first book, A Woman Trapped in a Woman's Body (2007). After a recurring role on the dramedy "Hung" (HBO 2009-2011), Weedman began finding roles in films, namely "Date Night" (2010) and "The Five-Year Engagement" (2012), though the bulk of her work remained in supporting parts on series like "New Girl" (Fox 2011-) and "Arrested Development" (Fox/Netflix 2003-06, 2013-). Once again, this line of roles led her to a major part on a new dramedy series: "Looking" (HBO 2014-15), on which she played the role of Doris. Following the series' cancelation, Weedman published her second book, Miss Fortune: Fresh Perspectives on Having it All From Someone Who Is Not Okay (2016), and went on to appear in comedy films like "Joshy" (2016), "The Little Hours" (2017), and "Wilson" (2017) and appear in the third season of "Playing House" (USA 2015- ) as self-defense instructor Cookie.
