Lauren has been on the comedy circuit for 5 years, which at the age of just 23yrs old, makes her one of the brightest young talents on the comedy scene.
Lauren has just returned from a sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with her critically acclaimed debut show Lady Muck. This 5 star show was so popular three extra shows were added and subsequently sold out. Not only was ‘Lady Muck’ the best reviewed show at The Pleasance last year, Lauren also won a Herald Angel Award and was nominated for Best Newcomer 2017 at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards.
She came runner up at the Funny Women Awards 2014, was the only female comedian to reach the final of the Chortle Student Comedy Awards 2015 and in 2016 reached the final of the BBC New Comedy Awards. She has supported Katherine Ryan on her last two tours and opened for Stewart Francis and Dane Baptiste. She also played Latitude and Leeds festivals for the last two years.
A regular on the national stand up circuit, this baby faced comic is one to watch out for.
