Laura Severse is a native Boston comic, actor, and writer. She is a devoted wife, working mother of two, and a gifted storyteller. Laura brings her hard-working, heartfelt approach to life to stages across the country. Laura’s attitude is equal parts bold, brash, kind, and gentle but always funny. She finds humor in everything from climbing the corporate ladder to the trials and tribulations of raising two young children in the heart of a changing city in the midst of a changing world. Audiences have no choice but to be swept up in the joy, pathos, and sheer excitement of a city kid who’s seen it all and can’t wait for more. She is a true Dorchester Debutante with a killer accent and a lifelong addiction to gold hoops, the bigger the better.
