Jillie Reil aka THE COUGAR OF COMEDY® was raised in rural Minnesota, but as she got older, she felt like her heart was somewhere else. So, she followed her dreams of getting Botox in Southern California and chasing men half her age. Lots of wine boxes, leopard print and college boys later, she has never looked back.
