When life gives her lemons, she makes them into jokes about how the lemons were jerks and ugly anyway. Lauren Uchalik’s self-depricating, yet relatable humor has endeared her to audiences across the midwest. Hailing from Hamtramck, a borough of Detroit, Lauren’s years of method-research into the life of a child of a starving artist then as a starving artist herself have helped her develop material that makes you believe she has really been there. Don’t let her childish looks fool you, the sometimes-dark and occasionally deadpan nature of her humor has a wit far beyond her years.
Performing at colleges, comedy clubs, and a variety of other venues of assorted shapes, sizes, and dignity levels, Lauren has spent the past five years developing her voice as one of the rising comedians on the Detroit comedy scene. She has opened for Bryan McCree, Sal Demilio, Chris Young, Mike Bobbitt, Bob Phillips, and Dave McDonald and emceed a variety of showcase shows from Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle in Royal Oak to Southwestern Michigan College in Dowagiac.
