8 June 2023 to 8 June 2023 | 7.30pm | The Quad Theatre, Marjon Arts Centre

Jen Brister

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.


“No one does furious better than Brister.” **** - The Guardian

“Her energy is explosive. Her use of space and delivery, mesmerising.” The Sunday Times

“A phenomenal display of sinewy stand up.” Chortle
