Jen Brister

After performing in front of the legendary Spike Milligan and receiving the luminous and prestigious title of having ‘a great pair of Bristols,’ Jen knew that comedy was the way forward. So with the help of two jokes and a push up bra she was on her way…

Since that heady day Jen has performed stand up in clubs all over the country (literally) as well as sketch comedy in numerous groups including the Loose Connection.

In 2006 she took up her first one woman show Me My Mum & I to the Edinburgh Festival where she received excellent reviews. “Brister ticks all the boxes – she’s confident, energetic and knows how to deliver a line for maximum laughs” – THE SCOTSMAN

In 2007 Jen began working at BBC 6 Music where she presented a number of different shows including the weekend overnights, the weekend breakfast show and stand ins for Lauren Laverne, Liz Kershaw and Jon Holmes. Jen also starred in Russell Brand & Trevor Lock’s Cloud Cuckoo Land for BBC Radio 2.

In 2008 Brister teamed up with her comedy writing partner, Clare Warde to produce a two hand sketch comedy show called Reception. The Sunday Times applauded its “Bold sketches, surreal ideas and slick banter…keep an eye out” whilst THE STAGE highlighted “Two natural comic actors, the duo have an assured style and strong rapport that recalls the best of French and Saunders. This is one female double act that definitely deserves a promotion.”

In 2009 at the Edinburgh Festival Jen performed stand up at the Pleasance Cabaret Bar in the Comedy Zone as well as starring in Trevor Lock’s hilarious new play The One & The Many.

In 2011 Brister performed her new stand up show, Jen Brister is British(ish) at the Adelaide & Melbourne Comedy Festivals before taking it to the Edinburgh Festival to a raft of great reviews.
