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

    She's a comedian.

    Lauren Bok is an award winning comedian with big, sassy energy. She does stand up, burlesque, mimes, silly voices and stand up all at same time.

     

    Nominated for the Golden Gibbo at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2019, she has been described as 'jaw-achingly brilliant' by The Music and 'a joy to watch' by the Herald Sun.

     

    You can find her stomping on stages at Burlesque Idol, Comedy Republic, Hairbrush Comedy, and at the Channel 10 studios doing audience warm up for The Project.

     

    She's been called a champion of the independent spirit of comedy, and is a fierce advocate of fresh new ideas and intersectional spaces.

  • Instantly relatable, charismatic and doubled-over-gasping-for-air funny,  Bok held the audience in the palm of her hand.

  • STUFF I do

    Comedy.

    Just, in general. Generally.

    She can do stand up, presenting, corporate gigs, charity fundraisers, hen's parties, any kind of hosting, MCing, Trivia, audience warm-up, basically any kind of getting-up-in-front-of-people-both-in-person-and-virtual-sense things.

     

    She appears regularly at countless stand up and variety nights across her home city of Melbourne.

    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!
