Gwendolyn Purdom is a Chicago-based writer, editor, and bar trivia night ninja. When she isn't writing about theater, comedy, or culture, or co-hosting health and fitness show "Living Healthy Chicago," she's probably walking her Australian shepherd mix Pam Beesly or desperately applying Tide To Go pressure to whatever she just spilled all over herself.
