“The latest in a summer of American imports to Edinburgh, Pauley’s flawless confidence and no-bullshit attitude make her a sharp, polished performer.

Born and raised in Revere, MA in an Irish Catholic Boston neighborhood, she is the daughter of a cab driver and a union steward. After graduating Emerson College with a B.A., she moved to New York and began paying off her education with a string of glamorous jobs including waitress, bartender, paralegal (lasted one day), bathroom attendant, coat check girl, cigarette girl and dog walker. With a resume like that, could she be anything BUT funny? Relocated from New York to Los Angeles with her husband and her Dog, Bernie often wonders where she belongs, in blue collar Revere or Beverly Hills. The answer is both. And neither.
