She has taken several extreemly well recieved solo shows up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, as well as performing as part of The Comedy Zone at the Pleasance and appearing in Trevor Lock’s hilarious play “The One & The Many”.

“Brister ticks all the boxes – she’s confident, energetic and knows how to deliver a line for maximum laughs”

She has worked 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.

Jen has worked with her comedy 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.”

Jen has also taken shows to the Adelaide & Melbourne Comedy Festivals.
