Brad Schnurr was born in Fort Dodge, Iowa and raised by a loving family, absolutely ruining his chances of one day becoming a successful memoirist. He attended the University of Iowa, where he met his future wife Jeri Lynn Schulke. Brad and Jeri Lynn moved to Chapel Hill in 1996, and except for a couple interruptive moves to New York, they've been here ever since. For the past 20 years he's worked in and around the residential construction industry and played a little music. He started doing standup comedy in 2011. He also is a contributing columnist for The Weekly.
