Press Blurb

Their press blurb, taken from a 2011 application to perform at The Hideout Theatre:

Erica and Pierce is comprised of the overlapping minds and improv training of Erica Lies and Pierce Purselley. Also members of Venn Diaphragm, they have studied improvised comic arts at iO Chicago, New York's People's Improv Theater, the Upright Citizens Brigade, and the Magnet Theater. Together, the two performs a fun story of character-driven longform improv. Separately, they are outdated forms of birth control that cannot prevent disease.

"What's Your Deal?"

Their answer to the "What's Your Deal?" question on a 2011 application to perform at The Hideout Theatre:

We look to perform a loosely based narrative form where we try to tell a good story.

We work on the structure of story telling and to follow a beginning, middle and end.

We practice grounded strong character based scenes and dig into questions for everyday people.
