Comedian and writer Lauren Hope Krass got her start in comedy in the beautiful city of Charleston, South Carolina. There, she performed improv and standup regularly at Theatre 99 and all over the city. Her material ranges from the ridiculous to the brutally honest. Her self-deprecating humor combined with a dash of charm creates a unique perspective relevant to any audience.
Lauren has headlined nationwide for Organizations (SAP Americas), Colleges (Princeton) and Clubs (Goonies, MD). Locally, you can catch her at some of the best clubs in NYC such as Caroline's, Stand Up NY, New York Comedy Club and QED among many others. She has also been a featured storyteller on Kevin Allison’s RISK! She's the winner of the She Devil Comedy Festival (2018) and her original TV Pilot "Fat With Standards" was an official selection of the Atlanta Comedy Film Festival (2021) and a finalist in the Austin Comedy Film Festival (2021). More recently Lauren has also taken on the world of cruises and has contracts with Carnival, Holland America & Celebrity. Lauren has also been featured in the Women in Comedy Festival, Cinderblock Comedy Festival, Annapolis Comedy Festival and the Charleston Comedy Festival.
More than her awesome jokes, Lauren is also an award winning playwright (and now scriptwriter!) She has written and performed in her full length original musical titled “Princess Charming" which was well received on stages in South Carolina and New York City. After that, she performed her caberet show "A Krass Act" at the famous Duplex Piano Bar in NYC and at QED. This hilarious show features her best jokes, stories and original songs. Lauren has been written about in The New York Times, Time Out NY and Backstage. You’re going to want to see what the hell this woman is doing...
