Maggie Farris with Jenn Schaal
Maggie Faris was born and raised in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Maggie began comedy in 1999, after hanging out in the comedy club her sister was a waitress at. After finding her voice and honing her craft, Maggie now brings to the stage an enormously likeable personality and confidence impossible not to take lightly. She prides herself on her unique and smart material, without being self-deprecating or tired. Maggie has proven to be universally liked by a diverse audience. Whether black or white, gay or straight, men or women, she proves to be a hit with her belief that we are all equally goofy human beings.
In 2003 after winning the Women's portion of the Twin-Cities laff off, she proceeded to win the five minute gender showdown and become the first woman in history to win the overall title in this premier Twin-Cities event which include Louie Anderson, Roseanne, and Dave Mordal as some of the featured alumni. In 2004 she won a comedy contest to become the Public Address Announcer for the Saint Paul Saints Professional Baseball Team and was introduced as such on ESPN's Cold Pizza.
Jenn's jokes and stories are hilariously derived from her "Oh My God, I can't believe that happened to you" real life experiences and have been described as "genuine, honest, and tell it like it is". Come on, people. She's a 30-something single gal with an East Coast personality in the land of Minnesota Nice, where she is still recovering from her mother making her take her high school senior pictures with her cat. Most recently, Jenn was a semifinalist in the 2012 Rooftop Comedy National College Competition and featured in the Pioneer Press.
