Lauren Ansley’s Bio

Based in Charlotte, NC, Lauren Ansley is a stand-up comedian, emcee/show host, and show producer. She has been a featured performer in several comedy festivals throughout the Carolinas, named one of the comedians to know by Charlotte Five and was profiled in Winthrop Alumni’s “My Winthrop Experience.” Lauren has opened for nationally touring headliners Dale Jones, Preacher Lawson, Sean Patton, Shaun Jones, Grandma Lee, Sean Finnerty and Michael Palascak. Lauren’s passion to make others laugh and slight southern accent are only overshadowed by her infectious smile and abnormal height of 5’13”.

A Bit More Background

Utilizing her background in marketing, event planning, and host/emcee experience, Lauren produced her first comedy show under the name Beerly Funny in the Summer of 2019. An independent comedy show production, Beerly Funny transforms local venues – breweries, restaurants, unique performance spaces and more -into comedy clubs one night at a time.

In September 2019, Lauren quit her job, sold her house and launched Beerly Funny into a full-fledged company, complete with government paperwork, and even a business checking account – so official!

Beerly Funny was hosting shows at up to seven locations in multiple cities in the Greater Charlotte Region, and even had plans to expand into two new spots in SC.

In March 2020, in the midst of an international pandemic (maybe you’ve heard of it?), Lauren started “Virtually Hilarious” – a live, online entertainment offering through Beerly Funny, offering comedy shows, happy hours, game shows, and fundraisers. Learn more.

Lauren also wanted to acknowledge that she wrote this entire section in third person, her favorite color is blue, the best ice cream of all time is peanut butter and chocolate, and she refuses to eat black eyed peas due to a traumatic childhood experience. And no, she does not wish to elaborate. Thank you.

But, ya know, not too social. Just, like, social enough.
