I was awarded a Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts juried residency. These residencies are for established and emerging visual artists, writers, composers, and interdisciplinary artists from across the country and around the world.
I recorded a story for RISK! at their live show in LA. It’s about motherhood and feeling hopeless. But it’s a funny story. Kevin Allison describes it better than I can: “She expressed in such a compelling way how life right now is especially confusing. The political situation... 21st century work/life balance... getting to a new stage in life and being surprised that it's more challenging than you expected. And then it all comes down to the nitty gritty of nursing several vaginas back to health. A constant process of adjusting. But you can hear how she seems to be getting stronger from it all. There's an invigorating feeling in the way she tells the story.” Listen here. (I’m the last story of the episode.)
I recorded a story for KCRW’s UnFictional. It’s about reconnecting with a childhood penpal who happens to be a MAGA wearing Trump supporter. Listen here.
We are A-Hole Parents. Coming soon to Awestruck and/or your facebook feed.
I wrote a piece for The Cut / NYMag called "Never Take a Romantic Vacation for Your Second Date"
Our Audible version of Wedlock the podcast (Wedlock with Kurt and Lauren) is available on iTunes. Listen. Rate. Review. You know how it is.
Kurt Braunohler and I wrote and performed a short play called "The Haunting" as part of The Artist Room series at The Washington Square Hotel in NYC on Oct. 29 & 30, 2016. It was a huge hit and we hope to perform it again in LA.
I recorded another story for KCRW's UnFictional. It's about my dysfunctional relationship with a psychic. Listen here.
I recorded another story for RISK! at their first live show at The Bell House. It's about #TheLoveButt and also my butt. Listen here.
The L.A.zy River! This was big. Against all odds, we celebrated that little boy El Nino in the best way possible: by having a Tube Race down the Los Angeles River. Check out our our site for all the law-breaking details.
Wedlock is a VERY PERSONAL (too personal?) relationship podcast I record with my husband, Kurt Braunohler. We are developing this as a show for Audible, but in the meantime, listen to these episodes on The K-Ohle:
Wedlock #1 - What does it mean to be married? Why do it? Plus awkward details of my walking in on Kurt masturbating weeks after we tied the knot.
Wedlock #2 - We take on the challenge to have sex every day for a month, then tell the story of the time we both had bedbugs and got caught having sex at my boss' house.
Wedlock #3 - We get stranded in the rain after a 4-mile hike up a mountain, break into an emergency hikers’ station, start a fire and record a podcast about MARRIAGE.
Wedlock #4 - We answer listener questions and do our best to give solid advice.
Get Lost #88 - We drive cross country for the third time. Things get weird in Roswell.
I co-hosted and co-produced the live storytelling show Radio Picture Show at The Virgil in LA on the second Wednesday of every month. We got the best guests and had the best audiences. We may reunite one day soon. Maybe to raise funds against our evil president.
I am in a lot of commercials, comedy shorts and web series. I've posted a few of my favorites on the Video Page.
I have a one-woman show, Chinatown Bust, that I performed at The Comedy Central Stage, UCBLA Franklin and The Loft Ensemble, as part of their annual Solofest. I'll be performing it again soon.
Chinatown Bust is a comedic, multi-character solo-show about a hypochondriac, daddy issues and Boy George…all on a Chinatown Bus. Darting back and forth between flashbacks and a miserable bus ride, this show tells the true story of a father - daughter reunion through the eyes of everyone except the father and daughter.
I recorded another podcast, about LYME DISEASE. I have Lyme and it sucks. I recorded a podcast to help spread the word. Listen to it here.
