Select a performance
A brand new stand-up show about passion, pace and purpose from the critically acclaimed star of BBC’s QI, Live at the Apollo and C4’s Travel Man.
Jess’ son’s joined a cult AND her cat’s learnt to talk – but despite all that she’s fine, actually. In fact she’s hurtling faster and hustling harder than ever for the things that she wants and needs. Her last show Wench played a sold-out Edinburgh Fringe run and UK tour and is available now as a special. Her previous show Hench was nominated for Best Show at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards and won Best Show at the Chortle Awards where Jess also won Best Act. It’s available to stream now on Amazon Prime.
Jess is a regular co-host of The Guilty Feminist podcast, host and creator of her own podcast about eating, Hoovering, and star and writer of BBC Radio 4’s Sturdy Girl Club. Jess has also appeared in the award-winning sitcom Motherland and most recently hugely-acclaimed feature film Scrapper which won the Grand Jury prize at the Sundance festival.
She’s also been on all your favourite panel shows from Celebrity Pointless to House of Games.
