    Burlesque

    Hosting and Performing

    Stacked full of whip-quick quips, Lauren Bok is a stone cold hilarious fox when hosting Burlesque. For over a decade this sassy drink of water has been stomping across the stages of Australia and internationally at Fringe and Comedy festivals doing herself a mischief. Lauren loves eye-liner, making best friends in the bathroom and takes a gin and tonic, thanks!

     

    Lauren's Comedy Burlesque Alter-Ego Laura Boxx is a tight lid that needs a strong pair of hands to open her. Behold the treasure within! A perky set of jumblies, legs for weeks, and a grin wider than her me-down-theres. Gaze in awe as you wonder if a) she's had any work done, b) is that a scar or a pimple, and c) is she supposed to be sexy, or funny?

    The answers are a) no, but definitely soon, b) it's from a tragic boating accident and c) a big fat YES to both!

     

    Laura Boxx is a freshman burlesque performer who has appeared at Burlesque Idol, Moulin Beige and Bar Pigalle.
