As part of the week of Charleston Comedy Festival interviews, let’s hear from WE’RE FROM HERE! We're From Here When did you ladies start working together and how did that come about? ADRIANNE: I was Erin’s first Canadian friend. Where did your name come from? A: Oh you know… this guy we met in Chicago would always name drop that he was from New York, like in every sentence he spoke! What are you currently working on? MANDY: Erin lives in Chicago and is completing her training at iO Chicago. What has your crowning achievement been together? ERIN: We were asked last minute to perform at the Toronto Improv Festival in 2009, and were told by an audience member that our show was the best improv set he had ever seen. Separately?

JILL BERNARD is taking her solo show DRUM MACHINE to Charleston for the Charleston Comedy Festival. Let’s hear from this Illinois native about her show, her comedic inspirations and the ups and downs of running her own theatre in Minneapolis. Jill Bernard (photo by Katy Kessler) Where did you grow up? Downers Grove and Evanston, Illinois Was comedy in your blood at a young age? My brother remembers when I was about five I sang a little song in the bath. Who inspired you to go into comedy? I don’t think I’d be as successful as I am if my brother Dan wasn’t so funny.

Did you have any other career aspirations at any point? I like to send away for brochures about nice, sensible-sounding careers, but I never do anything with them. What was your first paid gig in comedy? I started working for ComedySportz in 1993. What was your impetus for starting your own theatre? I started a theater with my friends Butch Roy and Nels Lennes. Can you talk about Drum Machine?
