Jen Ellison and Erica Reid like to drink weird things and tell you about them. What started with a simple fascination with Disaronno has turned into a fun (and educational) web series. Jen has been performing, writing and directing in Chicago for over 15 years. In addition to her work with WNEP, The Mammals, Trap Door Theatre, Collaboraction, The Neo-Futurists, and Theatre Seven, she also directs local sketch groups Kerpatty and Electric Fantasy. Jen currently teaches at DePaul University, Columbia College, and Second City. Erica Reid has been performing and choreographing in Chicago for over 13 years, and is a member of Blewt! Productions, where she performs in and produces the shows Steve Gadlin's Star Makers, Don’t Spit the Water! and Impress These Apes! She has also performed with KOKO, The Neutrino Project, WNEP, The Silly Funny Goof Gang and IO, among many others. Cheers!
