    About me

    I'm a comedian, working on clubs around Europe such as Up The Creek, The Stand and Jongleurs and playing prestigious clubs like Late and Live and BBC Presents.

    I appear regularly on TV, for example on BBC 1's BBC Breakfast.

    And I write for various TV and Radio shows too.

    In 2011 my debut Edinburgh show 'Luxury Tramp' went extremely well, and in 2012 I'm taking a new show about etymology called 'Brave New Word'

    For more and current details of what I'm up to see my website http:/www.jessicafostekew.com
