Jen Brister – Now and Then

4 Star


Jen Brister is an Anglo-Spanish female who has been on the comedy scene for a while now but strangely this is the first time I had seen he Fringe offering.

Ms Brister feels she is getting old, but no one would think that by looking at her, and the majority of her set is spent looking at her earlier life, the trauma of growing up with three brothers, coming out and wondering how long she can still shop in certain shops. And what is the attraction, and worries of red tights?

She has two major stories towards to end of her hour, stories that are both funny and occasionally cringe worthy, but she relates them in a style that makes them totally acceptable.

It’s a small but recurring part of her act, but I love it when she does a hilariously funny impersonation of  her Spanish mother, I could listen to that all night.
