Jill Bourque is a stand-up comedian, improvisor, and producer. These are all necessary skills when raising two boys and one husband.
She started doing stand-up when her firstborn was just three months old as a way to get out of the house. Now stand-up is her alone time to escape from reality. If you want some alone time, just go on-stage and do a joke that doesn’t work. You will feel very alone.
Jill has performed and produced hundreds of shows at the legendary Purple Onion. She’s the creator of the international hit improv show, How We First Met, which returns to San Francisco each year for Valentine’s Day. And she is the producer of the annual quirky stand-up show Not Your Normal New Year’s Eve.
Jill’s comedy brings audiences into her hilarious world of modern mayhem and off-kilter characters. She’s performed her unique style of improvisational stand-up comedy in clubs, festivals, and theaters all over the world.
