This year comedy dynamo Lauren Pau ttison received a Best Show nomination to add to her Best Newcomer, with her show “It Is What It Is”, which detailed how she was among the first comedians to move home and proudly take up a day job during the pandemic.
We talk about her relentless work ethic; class structures in comedy; and why she there’s no shame in supplementing your comedy income. We also discuss her anxious core beliefs, running for the CALM charity, and find out how a podcast took the place of therapy in her life.
20 mins of extras available exclusively to the Insiders Club include Lauren on how she copes with her anxiety over making eye contact, and what she wants the audience to think of her as they leave, as well as her approach to social media clips and people patronising her, plus the income stream that’s done wonders for her self-confidence!
