Some of Chicago’s most talented comedians come together in an effort to raise money for one of their own; Ever Mainard.
Best known for her work with the Wood Sugars and her podcast Dates with Ever, as well as hosting The Starving Artist Project, Ever Mainard is a rising star of Chicago comedy. Her mother, Mary Mainard, has fallen ill and cannot afford the medical care she requires, so Chicago comics, producers, performers and fans have joined forces in an effort to help raise money and lend support.
Mary has been in and out of the hospital recently, and doctors are unable to diagnose the specific cause of her ailments; she is in constant pain and losing weight rapidly. Because she is on Medicaid, Mary is not guaranteed medical attention and cannot afford the multiple diagnostic tests she has had to endure, plus an anti-immune specialist.
