On April 21, Figment made quite a splash at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. Featured during our “Fresh From Figment,” event, some of our beloved Figgies had their works read aloud — by famous actors and comedians, no less! Talk about life-long bragging rights.
If you got the chance to see the incapacitatingly funny Bridesmaids last summer, you’ll remember actress Wendi McLendon-Covey in the role of Rita, the awesomely cynical counterpart to Kristen Wiig’s loopy leading lady. We were lucky enough to have Wendi take part in the event, and she obliged with a kick-ass reading of two different pieces, Cosmetically Challenged by Suzanne Beaumont and Spin the Bottle by Veronica White. We dare ya not to laugh.
