I am Lauren Cook but also Lauren Koch*

I am an actress and a writer who dislikes cats and blue cheese. I stand by these positions even if they are unpopular.

My one-woman show, Chinatown Bust, will premiere at the Comedy Central Stage on June 10th at 8p. This show is FREE. Be there.

I also do storytelling. (Storytelling has nothing to do with children and I agree it needs a different name, but trust me, you’ll dig it.) I co-host and produce a storytelling show, Radio Picture Show the second Wednesday of every month at The Virgil in LA. We were named a TimeOut LA Pick of the Week and featured in this interview. We were included in this TimeOut LA list, too. Please come and see us!

I’m in commercials and have worked on a lot of web series. FLOATERS, a series I starred in and wrote for, went to Sundance and I won an Emmy for having written it. CHAOS THEORY is another good one. Watch them here.

Now I produce my own web shorts. Check them on my VIDEOS page. Many of these have been showcased on Buzzfeed, HuffPo and Splitsider.

You should follow me on twitter and maybe we can even be friends: @LChoochTrain (like a choo choo train.)

Thanks for visiting. My love for you is strong.

*(‘Koch’ is pronounced ‘Cook’. But people call me ‘Cock’ or ‘Cooch’ often. On a whim I went phonetic, professionally. But now… my grandfather…it’s complicated. Anyway, either. Either ‘Cook’ or ‘Koch,’ that is. Auditorily these are the same. Not ‘Cooch’ or ‘Cock.’ Thanks.) (Also gorgonzola is blue cheese.)
