What makes a successful show? The answer is simple, it’s equal parts original ideas and strong characters the viewer identifies with and loves. The Laura Show’s freshman Season did just that by bringing to vivid life, Laura’s modern day, romantic comedy world. The show covers every aspect of modern day, from dating and young careers, to social media, pop culture and friendship. Much like a young SNL, show creator and star, Laura Linda Bradley’s writing style reflects the world she knows and loves, in a relatable, fresh and painfully honest way! Bradley, like many young creators, has found great success in creating her own content, like Lena Dunham, Tina Fey and other female greats that have preceded her. What makes The Laura Show so special is how passionate Bradley is about the stories and characters that she’s sharing with you. With a semi-autobiographical base, Bradley strives to introduce the audience to relatable and fun characters.
The Laura Show is done in sketch format to apply to the busy viewer’s attention span; as well as, to introduce the viewer to a wider variety of characters within the show’s world. Laura has been compared to Sex and the City meets New Girl. The show’s writing seamlessly blends the harsh reality of dating and relationships, with the fun loving innocence of friendship and finding yourself.
Capturing the classic relationship comedy of the Friends era, Bradley returns the spotlight of comedy to the characters and the world they live in, rather than out of control storylines. Bradley’s characters interact within a modern world of actor’s on set, the 20 something’s apartment and the obvious local coffee shop. Bradley blends sketch comedy timing with sitcom writing style. Each sketch feels like a mini episode, leaving the audience wanting more. Each week the audience’s eyes are open to Bradley’s hilarious point of view on the world. Bradley asks and answers the question, as a woman what would happen if you listened to that crazy little voice in your head? What would she do? What would she say? Would she be more fun than me…? Like New Girl and the iconic Carrie Bradshaw, Bradley brings to life, the voice and thoughts of the modern girl, with a sharp and direct writing style.
Bradley grew up with a rare ability to capture life’s humorous moments in an unparalleled way. The show introduces the viewer to Bradley’s world, and before you know it, you’re falling down the rabbit hole into Wonderland and loving every minute of it! With an infectious energy, you can’t help but smile when Bradley comes on screen. With an excitement and joy for her work, and one of the most “readable faces” in Hollywood, Bradley is one of a kind.
Writer/Creator: Laura Linda Bradley
Told at a young age that “words were her friends”, and born with a love of performing and making others laugh, Laura was on her way to a career as a multi-hyphenate!
Emmy winning actress Laura Linda Bradley (Surviving An Active Shooter) trained at the prestigious NCSA before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in tv/film. Like many young actors Laura had a desire to create her own work and opportunities, she started writing with no set goal other than the desire to create the show she and her friends would want to watch. From that The Laura Show was born, a sketch format comedy with the heightened comedy of SNL and the heart of NEW GIRL. Laura quickly found her voice as a writer creating strong female lead projects like MILLENNIAL COMPLEX, FEMALE BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION and WE ARE VIRGINIA TECH.
Outside of her writing career, Laura is a successful actress, BIG LITTLE LIES, BOMBSHELL and PERRY MASON. She’s also a successful voiceover artists and commercial actor. In 2018 Laura started What’s My Frame? a resource site for young actors and writers helping them navigate the ever changing landscape of the business we love.
