Stand-up comedian and South Orange native Jessica Kirson is a powerhouse on stage! She’s a hilariously relatable performer of sheer silliness, vulnerability, and ridiculous characters. Videos of her countless comedic characters earned more than 50 million views on social media, and The Montreal Gazette praises her for taking “self-deprecating to another level, turning it into an art form” in her comedy shows.
Her most recent album, The Call Girls, featuring Rachel Feinstein, showcases Kirson’s unique style. Recorded virtually during the depths of quarantine, The Call Girls features a riotous cast of characters such as old Jewish grandmothers, sexy co-eds, a conservative mother and her gay son, and more. These hilarious characters prank call different establishments from bakeries to diners to vitamin shops and more.
In an era where only 10% of all touring comedians are female, Kirson stands out as one of the strongest, regardless of gender, winning the coveted Nightlight Award for “Best Stand Up Comedian” in New York City. Kirson has performed at Marshall’s Women in Comedy, Comedy Central’s South Beach, and HBO’s Las Vegas comedy festivals. She is also a regular contributor on The Howard Stern Show.
