Lauren Bok It's A Long Way To The Bok (If You Wanna Sausage Roll)

The Butterfly Club presents

Lauren Bok It's A Long Way To The Bok (If You Wanna Sausage Roll)

Nominee Golden Gibbo 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Winner Best Emerging Artist Weekly Award 2016 Adelaide Fringe

Award-winning comedian Lauren Bok rocks out with a hilarious, burlesquey, stand-uppy, golden crispy comedy show about how a sausage roll changed the course of her life one buttery, flakey bite at a time!

It all started at the tender age of ten when she ate a sausage roll that was not hers. Instead of relishing in her savoury victory, the shame of getting in trouble addicted her to the giddy highs and the crushing lows of perfectionism and trying to reach 'The Top'!

So how does an over-achieving perfectionist cope with a pandemic?

With tassel twirling to ACDC, harrowing hospo stories, an inflatable dildo, long-form mimes and a mission to get as much dopamine as possible from doing the gardening.

'Jaw-achingly brilliant... it's all banger after banger after banger. ★★★★½' The Music

'Her innate nuttiness and gift for physical comedy need to be seen live and up close. A sight to behold.' Herald Sun

'Wickedly funny stand up, she has the audience in stitches.' Popculture-y

Listed in 'Rising stars to watch' at 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival by Herald Sun.
