If Jen Brister has learned anything in the past 18 months, it’s that she’s no good in a crisis. (Unless you count getting into the foetal position in under 30 seconds.) 

Has the pandemic changed her for the better or is she the same old pessimistic naysayer she’s always been? I think we all know the answer to that. Let’s just hope she can make it funny.


“Furiously funny.”
The Guardian
“Her energy is explosive. Her use of space and delivery, mesmerising.”
The Sunday Times
“A phenomenal display of sinewy stand up.”
The Chortle
