Introducing Lauren Pattison
Lauren Pattison is a talented stand-up and actress who graduated from Northumbria University with a First Class Degree in Drama.
Lauren's been doing stand-up for four years and is one of the brightest young talents on the comedy scene. She came runner up at the Funny Women Awards 2014 and this year was the only female comedian to reach the final of the Chortle Student Comedy Awards. Last year she supported Katherine Ryan on several tour dates and opened for Stewart Francis. She also played Latitude and Leeds festivals and took her 45mins solo work in progress show REET PETITE to Edinburgh.
Last summer Lauren reached the final of the BBC New Comedy Awards and performed live on BBC Radio 4.
A regular on the national stand up circuit, this baby faced comic is one to watch out for. In 2017 will see Lauren perform her debut hour show at the Edinburgh Festival.

Will Duggan has been performing comedy since 2009 and since then has cemented himself as a dynamic and interesting performer in comedy clubs around the country. Will mixes stories and gags with a cheerfully cynical view of the world.
