Lauren Yeates

Comedy Development

Lauren works across What Larks! comedy slate developing current projects and also nurturing new shows and talent.

Previously Lauren worked in development at Lucky Giant / Universal where she worked across a variety of scripted comedy including Quacks (BBC2), Family Tree (Sky) and supported a number of writers with shows in development. Prior to this she worked in Business Affairs at Carnival across development and production. She also worked at Leicester Comedy Festival for three years running the office and expanding the festivals programme.

Lauren loves British comedy and has a real soft spot for self-deluded idiots like Alan Partridge and David Brent. Her favourite comedies include Father Ted, People Just Do Nothing, Transparent and Frasier.

In her spare time Lauren attempts to cycle and write, though not at the same time.
