About Lauren Weyland

Lauren was born on Sandbox Island on October 1, 2006 into a relatively modest family. Poorly educated and half naked she was turned out into the world, unable to learn the craft of building or scripting, Lauren instead made watercress sandwiches for those that could build and entertained them with her jokes. Since then she has moved on and performed at dozens of Clubs, Corporate Events, and enumerable  Benefits, written and performed in Theater Plays, and  maintains a regular show night at her club “Lauren’s Place” on Cookie Island.

Lauren has one child Lula. In a quirk of SecondLlife she lives in the sim Old Wives although she has never been married. When not working on comedy Lauren can be found landscaping at her home, making a gourmet meal or just kicking back on her dock reading a good novel. She is also writing an autobiography called, “Beneath The Skin: Second Life Exposed” and ” Laughter – The orgasm you don’t have to worry about if your partner is  finished.”

You can catch Lauren’s performance Tuesdays at 5 pm PT at in Second Life (slurl) or watch it on live stream.
