Stand up, writer, improviser, all around funny gal -- Ever Mainard has been listed as one of the Top Seven Acts to watch in 2012 by Metromix/Redeye, Chicago, Chicago Magazine has deemed Ever as one of the 'Top 100 Comics in Chicago', and Gaper's block has featured her as one of five influential women in Chicago Comedy. With her spontaneous characters, quick witted anecdotes, and quirky mannerisms, Ever will have you laughing well after her performance. Ever's background in improv gives her the ability to create visceral and border line cathartic moments in her crowd work and off the cuff riffs. Her work has been seen on Jezebel.com, The Apiary, N.P.R., The Onion A.V. Club, and many more!
Ever will be joining us this Friday evening at midnight, the night after she hosts Chicago Pride Weekend’s 9th Annual Backlot Bash Comedy Kickoff. Ever recently finished a stint at the TBS Just For Laughs Festival. She will be performing a live stand-up set, followed by a one-on-one interview and an audience Q & A. The interview and Q & A will be recorded as part of 100 Proof Comedy’s new But Seriously Podcast.
This Friday's show will be hosted by Sherman Edward's (named Chicago's Best Stand-Up by The Chicago Reader) with audience correspondent Matteo Lane.
