Who Is Lauren Mayer?
Lauren began playing the piano at age 3 and discovered her penchant for writing comedy songs shortly thereafter. Her early influences included Alan Sherman, Dr. Demento, and Tom Lehrer (which explains her slightly warped sense of humor). After graduating from Yale summa cum laude, Lauren spent 5 years in New York being a starving artist, singing on street corners, writing songs and thoroughly disappointing her parents. She then moved to San Francisco to meet straight men, where she became a fixture on the piano bar & cabaret scene, winning 5 SF Cabaret Gold awards and tens of fans. For the past 25 years Lauren has written and performed customized shows for corporate clients and private parties (and if you're doing the math, just assume she started when she was 10). She has written several published children's musicals, released three albums of kids' music and three comedy CDs, created and performed a one-woman show, and won numerous songwriting and performing awards. Despite all these impressive accomplishments, Lauren's mother still doesn't understand why she didn't go to law school.
