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. She appeared for Taking the Piste in 2011 at the Varsity Festival in Val Thorens and was truly impressive… and was instantly rebooked!
Brister recently returned from Australia where she performed her new stand up show, ‘Jen Brister is British(ish)’ at the Adelaide & Melbourne Comedy Festivals to a raft of great reviews. She will be taking this show to the Edinburgh Festival in August where she will be performing at Just the Tonic Caves at 8pm every night.
