Carrie Bain was raised in a small town in South Dakota. Since there was nothing to do in South Dakota she would stay home and watch "The Three Stooges" and "Sesame Street".
Carrie went to college at the University of Minnesota Duluth. There she got into improv/comedy by accident. Her friends made her go to the local comedy club and perform and the rest is history. After college Carrie moved to Chicago and took classes at the Second City Conservatory.
Currently you can see her around Chicago looking confused or pissed off at stupid tourists. Crazy homeless people are for some strange reason attracted to her.
