Lauren Flans is madly, passionately in love with comedy. A graduate of Northwestern University, one of the highlights of her comedy career thus far was spending three-and-a-half years performing in Amsterdam with Boom Chicago, the internationally known improv and sketch comedy theatre! During her time in Holland, Lauren was also the on-the-street-correspondent for Comedy Central Netherlands’ version of The Daily Show in a nightly segment aptly named “Flans on the Street.” After leaving Amsterdam, Lauren spent three months in London teaching improv and performing stand-up, and was a finalist in the London Comedy Store’s infamous King Gong Show! On U.S. soil, Lauren has studied and performed improv and sketch at Improv Olympic, The Groundlings, and the Upright Citizens Brigade theatre among others, and is a proud cast member of the on-going cult sensation Lost Moon Radio stage show. Film credits include The 40 Year-Old Virgin, Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, and the Upright Citizens Brigade film Wild Girls Gone. Television credits include Attack of the Show! and over 70 “Flans on the Street” segments for Comedy Central Netherlands, some of which can be seen on her website, www.laurenflans.com. Lauren feels very weird talking about herself in the third person, so she is going to stop now.
