Believe you can and you’re halfway there.
-Theodore Roosevelt

Late Night Presents: Comedian Lauren Faber

 

 

Join us for a night of laughs on Saturday, November 2 at 10 PM in the MUB Ballroom. Late Night presents Comedian Lauren Faber!

Lauren Faber is a feral comedian who was raised in a basement by the 90’s comedy specials of Ellen DeGeneres, Paula Poundstone, and Elvira Kurt. (Yes, she sees the connection now.) Her thoughtful comedy and storytelling touches on sexuality, mental health, politics, and her own very, very bad decisions. She has been compared to Kate McKinnon, PBS, and a golden retriever. (No, she doesn’t see the connection.)

Lauren’s comedy has appeared on Audible’s Punchlines. She was a StandUp NBC Semi-Finalist and won the titles of NYC’s She-Devil and Carolina’s Funniest Comic. She has performed in numerous festivals including Laughing Skull, Limestone, and 208 Fest has shared the stage with the likes of Maria Bamford, Beth Stelling, Fortune Feimster, Iliza Shlesinger, Todd Glass, and Matt Braunger.

When Lauren isn’t on stage, she manages international development research at a university in Durham, NC with a very famous basketball team that she cares nothing about. She has two cats, Stetson and Kennedy, and likes one of them. They were a gift. Don’t do that.
