Bio: Jessica is known worldwide as a satirical musician, artist & activist who uses her own comedy, illustration, videos and art in her performances. She tours the US and the UK regularly and has performed in many festivals including the Reading & Leeds Festival, Latitude Festival, Montreal Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Dublin Comedy Festival, NY International Children’s Film Festival and more. Jessica plays the guitar, flying V ukulele, singing saw, “rape” whistle, electronic autoharp and many other eclectic instruments in her unique act.
Jessica’s comedy and ideas are inspired by being the oldest of 6 sisters, growing up in a small town in Maine, and her disenchantment / amusement with all that is wrong in the world. When Jessica was 19, she moved to Philadelphia to study animation after winning a scholarship to the Art Institute of Philadelphia, and relocated to NYC shortly after graduating which she still calls home when she is not touring.
Her polarizing music, performances, art and internet videos have won many awards and garnered much praise, and have also been publicly degraded by the Catholic League.
She has performed her music and written segments and songs for television (including ABC’s “Good Morning America”, MTV’s “I Bet You Will”, Fox News “Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld”, TBS’s “Saving Grace” website and “The Tyra Banks Show”), radio (including “The Opie and Anthony Radio Show”, BBC’s “Loose Ends Radio Programme” and BBC’s “The Simone Show” in the UK), feature films (including “What Would Jesus Buy?” directed by Morgan Spurlock), and stages and festivals across the US and the UK (including London’s prestigious Soho Theatre, Reading & Leeds Festival, Latitude Festival, Dublin Comedy Festival, NYC’s Irving Plaza, Joe’s Pub and The Bowery Ballroom as John Waters’ opening act, and LA’s Troubadour).
