A natural storyteller who's hugely likeable and naturally very funny.
She was nominated for Best Newcomer last year and has had a very busy 12 months so it's no surprise that Lauren Pattison's second hour, Peachy, was sold out within days of this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe beginning.
Last year's show focused on her moving to London and being ghosted by her boyfriend and saw her dubbed by some (not me) "The Taylor Swift of comedy". But not this year. This year's show lives up to it's name Peachy as it's a far more upbeat affair.
