About the instructor:
Ever Mainard  is a stand up, writer, improviser, all around funny gal.

Ever is one of Chicago's top stand ups. Chicago Magazine credits her being one of the top 100 comics, Metromix/ Redeye says she's one of the Top Seven Acts to Watch in 2012, and Gaper's Block credited her to being one of The Most Influential Women in Chicago Comedy

Ever's monthly show "The Shit Show" has been called "gangbusters" by the Chicago  Suntimes and  'Hip-(with) cross genre comedy.." by The Onion A.V. Club.   Ever is also  a cast member of  the esteemed Chicago Underground Comedy and performs regularly at The Beat Kitchen select Tuesday nights.

Ever has worked with  Maria Bamford,Nick Thune, Fortune Feimster, Greg Berhandt, Sonya White, Bill Dwyer,and more.

Her work has been seen on, The Apiary, N.P.R., The Onion A.V. Club, and countless other websites!

Ever's spontaneous characters, quick witted anecdotes, and quirky mannerisms will have you laughing well after her performance.  Her background in improv gives her the ability to create visceral and border line cathartic moments in her crowd work and off the cuff riffs.  She performs regularly at The Beat Kitchen with her cast mates of Chicago Underground Comedy and as a co-producer/host of the A.V. Club recommended and Critics Pick-'The Shit Show.'
