I’m so excited to see Lauren Bok in her first solo show, Is That A Burrito In Your Pocket Or Are You Just Happy You Have A Burrito – #MICF 2016! It opened last night and tonight will be my first night at the show!
This super talented lady has been in a number of ensemble casts and co-written shows with other performers. She’s now branching out on her own in this hilarious piece. I got a sneak preview in her spot at Festival Club last night, and this girl has got it going on.
A bit more about the show:
We’re born, we are shoveled into a channel of carbohydrate, and the weight of life’s commitments are thrown on top of us.
The Tomato Salsa of Dreams. The Guacamole of Expectations. The Sour Cream of Hope.
This is the debut solo show from comedian and spicy hot tamale Lauren Bok.
Lauren Bok is a Melbourne-based comedian with a bright, witty, physical style. She is a regular on the comedy circuit in Melbourne and interstate, and appears nationally on Channel 31’s Live on Bowen, Games Night, OffBeat and About Tonight.

Last night I had the absolute pleasure of seeing Lauren Bok’s first solo show, Is that a burrito in your pocket or are you just happy you have a burrito. It was brilliant.
Lauren is so talented and she takes you on a wonderful journey through comedy, storytelling, mime and even gets a bit deep and sentimental. Some audience participation had me revealing some of my realtionship secrets! I was nodding along most of the show as I totally related to the trials and tribulations of life as a young woman in the modern day.
Catch this rising star in her MICF solo debut at The Forum, Carpet Room, 8.30pm until 3rd April! See blog post for details.
