brooklyn-based comedian, writer, actor, producer, people person
Hello! I'm Lauren Killer. Yes that is my real name and I'm certain you'll find it is the only interesting thing about me.
I live and work in New York, where I moved after graduating cum laude from The University of Florida in 2016, a detail made only even less impressive by the fact that my degree is in theatre (minors in English and Mass Communications for the parents!).
Since moving to the city, I have worked in tv and entertainment, beginning my career as a CBS page at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert where -- to the delight of Mr. Colbert himself -- I became part of his on-air goodnight segments. (I've heard he's a mess since I left; will someone check on him?) I went on to work in production and manage teams of staffers at The View, $100K Pyramid, and Good Morning America. I worked in VIP guest coordination at shows like Jimmy Kimmel Live (Brooklyn) and David Letterman's latest for Netflix. I performed comedic audience warm ups for NBC's Fourth of July Fire Works and The View (where I was not hired by Whoopi Goldberg to do the job full time, but I'm told she still asks about me. To quote directly: "She's gone, right?")
I have spent the past year writing, developing, and performing standup and continuing to produce my sketch show, Past Curfew's, bi-monthly residence at The PIT, where we continue to play to sold out audiences and will appear in New York Sketch Fest at the end of the month.
I am currently studying acting with Anthony Abeson and am an Advanced Study student at The Upright Citizens Brigade. I am also a member of One on One NYC.
I am looking forward to exciting new opportunities to gain professional experience in the media and entertainment industries.
