Comedian and UCB regular Laura Willcox discusses her new book, I Am Bride: How to Take the “We” Out of Wedding (and Other Useful Advice). Willcox was inspired to write the book when she got hitched a few years ago and documented the wedding-planning process for Jezebel. Narrated by a worse-than-bridezilla wedding planner, the how-to parody pokes fun of the whole ritual (or as Willcox describes it, a “Viking funeral”) by insisting that weddings are all about the bride — the groom is just a glorified cake topper — and includes humorous chapters on announcing your engagement on social media, the gift registry, invitations, venue, bridesmaids, vendors, food, music, speeches and the honeymoon. Willcox will be joined by Jamie Lee, Nicole Shabtai and others performing wedding-related stand-up and storytelling.
