Lauren is a comedian, actor and writer. 

Lauren appeared in two episodes of COMEDY CENTRAL AT THE COMEDY STORE, ROAST BATTLE hosted by Jimmy Carr and guest hosted an episode of TAKESHI'S CASTLE all for Comedy Central. Other screen and radio credits include WHERE'S THE F IN THE NEWS (BBC Radio 4), NASTY WOMEN (BBC Radio 4) and THE GREAT CHRISTMAS RANT (ITV2). As an actor her credits include DRUNK HISTORY (Comedy Central), JERK (BBC), and CLIMAXED (BBC).

She can currently be heard hosting weekly podcast CAMPAIGN AGAINST LIVING MISERABLY produced by Dave Channel. There are 20 episodes of this critically acclaimed podcast, 'Like all the best conversational podcasts, theirs is a world you want to stay in - it’s funny, kind and thought-provoking.' The Guardian. Series so far available here.

In August 2017 Lauren sold out her debut run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with her critically acclaimed 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 that 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! She also successfully took the show to Soho Theatre where she also sold out the run. 

Her second tour 'Peachy' sold out at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018 within the first week of the festival, and again extra shows were added due to popular demand and consequently also sold out. Following the Fringe 'Peachy' enjoyed a week's run at Soho Theatre.

Lauren has performed worldwide including performing at Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne, New Zealand and Kilkenny International Comedy Festivals. She was the only UK rising Star invited to Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal in 2018, performing on The Brit(ish) line up alongside Sarah Pascoe, Joel Dommett, Ed Gamble and hosted by Nish Kumar. Whilst in Montreal she also recorded a set for The Stand Up Show with Katherine Ryan, which aired earlier this year. 

In Autumn 2017 she toured India for two weeks with Soho Theatre, playing in Bangalore, Goa and Mumbai.

Lauren hosted two series of weekly podcast 'Ed & Lauren' for BBC Radio 1 with fellow comedian Ed Night.

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”

Recommended by The Guardian “Fast, Forthright and Filthy”

She came runner up at the Funny Women Awards 2014, was the only female comedian to reach the final of the Chortle Student Comedy Awards 2015 and in 2016 reached the final of the BBC New Comedy Awards. She has supported Katherine Ryan on her last two tours and opened for Stewart Francis and Dane Baptiste. She also played Latitude and Leeds and Reading festivals for the last two years.
