Laura Severse

Comedian / Writer


The Dorchester Debutante

Laura Severse is a Boston native, devoted wife, working mother of two, storyteller and stand-up comic. Laura brings her hard-working, heartfelt approach to life to stages across the country. She finds the 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. Laura’s attitude is equal parts bold, brash, kind, and gentle but always and gut-wrenchingly funny. She is a true Bostonian with a killer accent and her comedy reflects her true nature: honest and hilarious.

Laura has headlined Nick’s Comedy Stop, regularly features at Laugh Boston, the Comedy Scene and WooHaHa. She has performed in the Boston Comedy Festival, the Women in Comedy Festival and was a featured performer in the NBC Spotlight Showcase during WICF. She was selected as Comic-In-Residence at the Comedy Studio in Somerville, MA for October 2018. Laura has participated in the Boston talent showcases for Comedy Central and Just For Laughs Montreal as well as the Best of Boston Comics Showcase at the Comedy Scene and Laugh Boston. She is a member of the Boston Comedy Chicks producing team, MassMouth, and performs regularly on the WGBH program Stories from the Stage. Laura has performed all over the country from San Diego to Washington, D.C. and has become a staple of New England comedy.
