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 a decade of experience in performance, radio and TV. She does mimes, burlesque, stand up and silly voices for adults and kids alike.
Along the way she's enjoyed multiple sold-out shows, rave reviews, best-newcomer lists (Pedestrian.tv and Broadsheet) was nominated for the Golden Gibbo at MICF 2019 and won Best Emerging Artist at Adelaide Fringe 2016, as well as writing for SBS Comedy and The Age.
She's been called a champion of the independent spirit of comedy, and is a fierce advocate of fresh new ideas and intersectional spaces.

STUFF I do
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!
