Lauren is a talented stand-up and writer-performer who graduated from Northumbria University with a First Class Degree and First Class Masters in Drama. She’s 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 this year, Lauren also won a Herald Angel Award and was nominated for Best Newcomer 2017 at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards. Needless to say, Lauren had an incredible debut year!
Here are a few of Lauren’s fantastic reviews:
The List ★★★★★ "Tremendous coming-of-age tale with razor wit and brutal honesty..."
The Herald ★★★★★ “a breath of feisty fresh air.”
The Telegraph ???? "a spiky, deliciously bawdy and remarkably assured debut hour that deserves to be one of the break-out hits of this year's Fringe."
The Scotsman ???? “robust and impressive”
Chortle ???? “Yet even when packing a punch, her demeanour is breezy, frank and friendly, making her wickedly engaging company.”
The Telegraph ???? "Because of Pattison’s Geordie roots and indecent subject matter, comparisons will no doubt be made with Sarah Millican, who also arrived on the Fringe (some years ago now) and blew everyone away. Those comparisons would be unfair, though: whisper it, but Pattison might just turn out to be a whole lot funnier."
The Sunday Times ???? “stunning youthful debut”

A regular on the national stand up circuit, this baby faced comic is one to watch out for.
