About this episode's featured artist:

Lauren Anderson grew up in St. Louis Park, Minnesota.  She received her Bachelor of Science degree in theatre from Minnesota State University, Mankato.  Afterward, Lauren returned home to Minneapolis to study improvisation at the Brave New Workshop Comedy Theatre -- the oldest satirical comedy theater in the country.  Lauren began teaching improv for the Brave New Workshop (BNW) in 2002, while working for CLIMB Theatre-- an issue-based children's theater company where she was the Associate Teaching Company Director.  In 2004, Lauren left CLIMB to become a full time actor/ writer for the BNW, and has since been in more than 34 shows – more than most other actors who’ve been part of the BNW in the 50+ years history of the company. 

In addition to her work with Brave New Workshop, you can see Anderson performing with other improv groups around town - Five Man Job, FOTERSON, and Show X.  These groups have performed all over the country including Chicago, Los Angeles, and Atlanta.  She is a coproducer of the the Twin Cities Improv Festival (now in its 8th year), and Improv-A-Go-Go(just celebrated its 12-year anniversary).  You can currently see her in The Wolf of Walmart now playing at the BNW through October.
