LAUREN MAUL (CREATOR, PERFORMER, MUSICIAN)
Lauren Maul was raised in Nebraska, studied theater at the University of San Diego, trained as an improviser in Chicago, and currently performs in New York. A "bit-maker" by trade, Lauren creates music, films, puppets, stand-up routines and other things. Lauren has appeared at festivals, including Williamstown, Just for Laughs, Chicago Sketchfest, the Women in Comedy Festival, SOLOCOM, NY Fringe, Brooklyn Comedy Festival, and San Francisco Sketchfest- where her show "Dudes Being Dudes Being Dudes" played to a sold-out audience. In 2014 Lauren created the viral Tumblr "You're Gonna Die Here", which features photos of terrifying AirBnB rentals. In 2016 Amazon Reviews: The Musical! (the musical web series she created) was named one of the best web series of the year by IndieWire and Lauren was named one of the "50 Funniest People in Brooklyn" by Brooklyn Magazine. In 2017 Lauren created the critically acclaimed "Apologies from Men" and the live concert was recommended by the NY Times. Her new dark comedy musical "Bucolic" (based on the small Nebraska town where I grew up) has been called "a gruesomely optimistic feast for the senses" and just wrapped up its first run of workshop performances at Judson Memorial Church. She is currently developing this project with director/choreographer Wendy Seyb and also working on an album of love songs called Too Much Love!
