Whether she is on stage doing stand-up, or interviewing fellow comics on her podcast while assuming the persona of various outrageous characters, New Jersey native Jessica Kirson packs a comedic punch.
Appealing to multi-generational audiences, she has mastered a variety of comedic styles, from observational comedy to personal musings and expert mimicry. Long a gifted mimic, she has created memorable and over-the-top characters, including spoiled teenager Mandy. She also produced FX’s “Hysterical,” a feature-length documentary that aired in April looking at the experiences of women in stand-up comedy. She will perform five shows May 20-22 at the Stress Factory in Bridgeport.
