Biography:
Lauren started out as a ballet dancer and danced from age 2-20. She toured with the Nutcracker and auditioned for ABT and Miami ballet theater. All the while secretly wanting to be a comedian.

It all feel into place when she started improv classes in 1991 at age 14 in Orlando, FL at SAK theatre, with Wayne Brady as her first improv teacher. She became the youngest main stage paid SAK player. Disney’s Comedy Warehouse hired her 4 years later. When she was old enough to get onto Pleasure Island.

She also appeared in: Equity shows at EPCOT, MGM, and Universal Studios. She did theatre and musicals all around Orlando. Lauren has improvised with: Orlando, Seattle, Atlanta, and London TheatreSports. In 1999 she was in the improv show in the Barrel Of Laughs Comedy Club on the maiden voyage of the Disney Wonder ( Disney Cruise Line) that set sail from Italy. She loved hosting the national tour of Game Lab Live for Nickelodeon. It was a childhood dream come true to tape the Nickelodeon Double Dare 2K test pilot.

She began teaching improv in 1997 and lead the teen and kids education program at SAK. In LA she has improvised with: TheatreSports, ACME, IO (LA improv), Liquid radio Players, House full of Honkeys, and produced her own show 99 Blanks. Lauren and 99 Blanks did 2 shows at Edward’s Air force base after 9/11. One of the most loving audiences ever.

She joined her current home ComedySportz in 2002. Where she finally found an LA Family. At ComedySportz she has taught for the Highschool league, assembled and ran the ComedySportz University, directs the Sunday team, and helps teach the corporate improv workshops.

She has worked as an AGVA performer for Universal, and Disneyland. She Hosts the New Year’s Eve count down each year for Disneyland, and hosted the Disneyland Small World countdown on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve in 2003. Lauren is an MC/ host for many corporate events and shows most recently: Disney, Vegas, Taco Bueno, and Old Navy. She also appeared in the long running Lord of the Rings musical parody : "Fellowship!" As "Pippin" alongside Mad TV writers and long time pals Ryan Smith and Brian Bradley. She writes and performers her own guitar songs for comedy shows. She has performed with Jen Kober, and played two weddings.

You may recognize her from TV appearances: Sarah Silverman Show, Bill Maher, Girlfriends, World Cup Comedy, Strong Medicine, Acceptable TV, Channel 101, or Commercials for: 3 spots for Bank One, 2 spots for Big Lots, Mini Cooper, Bahamas, 5 spots for Taco Bueno, Game show Network, and singing a Lauren original song for a Sheets campaign.

In July 2008, Lauren was given a position at another beloved institution of comedy, as she was given one of 4 spots on Fox's MADtv. With all the roles she has done in her travels, and her many television appearances, Lauren is hoping that MADtv can become a long lasting gig. Let's just hope that her work at Disney won't deter her from making fun of the Mickey Mouse Empire.

Where are they now?
As of May 2009, Lauren is a featured player in her first season on "MADtv."
