First Time First Blood - Jenna Chapman

Jenna Chapman is Co-Director of CHIRP's Annual Record Fair and erstwhile Creative Writing 101 student. Born in the UK, she grew up in the western Chicago suburbs, went to college in Minnesota, and came back to the city proper for grad school. When she was seven, she memorized the spelling of antidisestablishmentarianism from the dictionary to impress her friends, and has steadily been building an improved understanding of social dynamics ever since. Published works include numerous editions of origami-ed M*A*S*H notes, a series of escalatingly PG-13 jump rope rhymes, and three chapters of a very elaborate Twin Peaks/X-Files/Stargate SG-1 crossover fan fiction. She now lives in Andersonville with her roommate, two laptops, and an ever-expanding Sci-Fi/Fantasy novel collection.

First Time First Blood - Dave Maher

Raised in Oklahoma and Cincinnati, Dave Maher is a Chicagoan of a dozen years and as many apartments. He has acted and improvised comedy around the city since 2008, including a glorious stint at the now-defunct Upstairs Gallery, before he transcended improv and realized that stand-up is where his brand of energetic, intellectual and autobiographical intensity fits best. He tells stories and jokes at shows around the city, including Ultimate Pleasure Forever, the show he produces and hosts at Transistor in Lakeview on the last Saturday of every month.
