For over a decade Jess has been a whirlwind of comic invention, poignant acting and hilarious linguistic goofing about. She’s as at home over-sharing the truths of motherhood or being bawdily funny as she is showing off her impressive jester’s intellect or performing one-woman mini-plays about the absurd minutiae of British life that have the laser accuracy of Alan Bennett.
Jess has also been a hugely acclaimed and in demand writer for several years, working on top shows such as Have I Got News For You, 8 Out of 10 Cats and The News Quiz. She has also appeared in Psychoville, from the makers of League of Gentlemen, Holly Walsh and Graham Linehan’s new show Motherland and regularly hosts BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Comedy Club.
“Wears her smarts on her sleeve, great stuff." The Guardian
