Evan Edwards dreamed of doing stand-up comedy since she was a little girl growing up in the ass backwards corn country of Midwestern Illinois. While other girls were playing with Barbie’s, Evan was performing Richard Pryor in her basement for her friends. In her teen years, she would act out Pryor, George Carlin, Robin Williams and Eddie Murphy – early favorites. She finally hit the stage in her 20’s going up for the very first time at the Tempe Improv after the late great Robert Schimmel. From that moment, her career took off quick and for the next few years she toured all over the country working in comedy clubs with master road comics and future comedians still performing today. She did a small independent film and then made the hard decision to put her career on hold to be a single mother, a decision she never regretted but the time to pick up where she left of is now. Her style is her own, covering everything from baking to blow jobs. She’s a comedian’s comic, come out and see what all the fuss is about.
