"No such flies on headliner Bernadette Pauley, however. The latest in a summer of American imports to Edinburgh, Pauley’s flawless confidence and no-bullshit attitude make her a sharp, polished performer. Her ability to flit from charming anecdote to viciously biting punchline at a moment’s notice makes her a fascinatingly unpredictable comedian; an animated, emotive spectacle with an innate sense of where the laughs are."

“Her comedy is daring, blunt, honest and hilarious. It is no wonder this comedian is adored at comedy clubs and college campuses."-Amanda Chicoli, The Brooklyn Excelsior.
“The audience exploded with laughter at her every sentence.”- The Comedy Central Insider

Bernie was born and raised in Revere, MA, an Irish Catholic Boston neighborhood. If you're not familiar with the area, see the movies Gone Baby Gone and Goodwill hunting. The daughter of a cabdriver and union steward, how could she be anything BUT funny? After graduating Emerson College with a B.A. she moved to NYC and began paying off her education and building an acting resume. Her crappy job resume grew much faster than her acting one. She added paralegal lasted one day, waitress, bartender, bathroom attendant, coat check girl, cigarette girl and dogwalker to her list which already included working at Wonderland dog track, Suffolk Downs racetrack and supermarket cashier. She has spent years trying to figure out where she really belongs: in Blue Collar Revere or Beverly Hills. The answer is both. And neither.
