    Backtrack a bit...So who exactly is this Lauren Bok lady?

    She's a comedian. 

    Lauren Bok is an award-winning comedian from Melbourne with over 7 years experience in stand up comedy, hosting, radio, television presentation, performing and silly voices.


    Along the way she's enjoyed multiple sold-out shows, rave reviews and made it onto three best-newcomer lists (Pedestrian.tv, Broadsheet and webwombat.com) as well as writing for SBS Comedy and The Age.


    She is also the co-founder of Gaggle, an all-day workshop series in stand up, clowning and improv comedy for women and non-binary people. She has presented her own stand up comedy workshop for Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Fringe, Newcastle Not Just For Laughs Festival and more.


    Her award-winning debut solo show Is That A Burrito In Your Pocket Or Are You Just Happy You Have A Burrito toured to Edinburgh Fringe, Perth Fringe World, Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Anywhere Festival from 2015-2017.


    Her second solo show, Between a Bok and a Hard Place, examined the creation of comedy, earning her sold out shows, rave reviews and top 4 shows to see in The Guardian.


    "How does one even begin to explain how wonderfully funny Lauren Bok is" - Aussietheatre.com.au



  • Yeah but what else has she done

    yeah heaps what


    Between a Bok and a Hard Place

    Stepping between the cracks of comedy to show the 4 things needed to make a show: Title, blurb, image, and to a lesser extent, talent.


    "She has a warm, confident presence that she combines with a great deal of boisterous energy and physicality. Her observations are accessible, painfully accurate and reflective of an artist constantly honing her craft. She works for and with her audience creating hilarious and accessible moments to which both creators and consumers of comedy can relate."

    Radio Variety Hour

    With Sam Marzden and Bert Goldsmith


    Radio Variety Hour is an hour-long comedy theatre show unlike anything you've seen (or heard) since about 1950... part loving parody and part improvised chaos.


    The brainchild of comedians Bert Goldsmith, Sam Marzden and Lauren Bok, RVH is all these things and more. With the trio playing all characters, performing sound effects live on stage with a variety of household objects, singing old-time ads and often laughing more than the crowd, Radio Variety Hour is a comedy with something for everyone.






    Wander Women

    With Chelsea Hughes and Megan Mckay


    It’s the Wander Women! Tales of adventure from across the globe and



    A travel-based sketch show.


    "Wander Women is a refreshingly down to earth and self-deprecating show that highlights three very talented women"
