Ever Mainard

Ever Mainard is an improvisor, writer, and all around funny gal. Ever has been deemed “fearless” and “one of Chicago’s Hottest Talents” by Chicago Magazine. Ever achieved international recognition with the viral video of her stand up set titled “Here’s Your Rape.” The controversial anti rape bit was featured on CNN, The Onion, BITCH Magazine, Cracked.com, and twice over on Jezebel.com. Jezebel.com listed her amongst Louis CK, Sasha Baron Cohen, and John Mullany as one of the best comics to make a rape joke. Ever’s spontaneous characters, quick witted anecdotes, and quirky mannerisms have made her crowd favorite and a countless critics’s pick for Time Out, Chicago, The Reader, and The Chicago Tribune.

Ever’s training at the Second City, Conservatory and iO gives her an uncanny ability to riff and create cathartic moments in her stand up. Ever has performed in the Just for Laugh’s Festival, (2012, 2013) Bridgetown Comedy Festival (2012, 2013). During the Just For Laugh’s festival, Ever was seen performing in the Team CoCo Presents, Daily Motion Show by Andy Daily, featured for Moshe Kasher, the Todd Glass Show, the Super Serious Show. Ever’s self produced show- The SHIT SHOW- was the featured show on opening night. Ever’s presence at Just for Laugh’s did not go unnoticed. “Ever Mainard deserves recognition in her own right, not only as one of the hardest working, but also the hardest worked of the festival. Having been scheduled for an already impressive three shows including her own, The Dailymotion Comedy Showcaseand The Super Serious Show, she was pulled in a number of last-minute directions during the fest, also opening for Moshe Kasher and hosting one of Team Coco’s Combo shows. Seems Chicago’s best-kept secret isn’t going to be secret for much longer as she killed each and every opportunity she got. Pssst, Ever is the next big thing to come out of Chicago. Pass it on…”
Notably, Ever was picked to host Tig Notaro’s Show Time Special. Ever has hosted and featured in sold out shows with: Maria Bamford, Nick Thune, Jon Dwyer, Matt Braunger, and countless other headliners. Recently relocated in LA, Ever has performed at The Meltdown, LA, Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen, and is now producing her own shows.

Ever’s monthly show- THE SHIT SHOW- is a monthly show both in Chicago and coming soon to LA. Ever co-host/produces the monthly romp labeled as “whole other animal, on another planet.” by Laughbutton.com and is now partnering with the nationally known rooftopcomedy.com.
