Jessica Kirson makes me laugh really hard. Like spit shit out of my mouth laugh. She’s a murderer. She’s quick and raw and real, and funny as hell. Anytime someone’s telling me a theory on why women aren’t funny, I just cut them off and say’ Jessica Kirson. Case closed. Fuck off. Go watch Jessica Kirson then tell me women aren’t funny. (By the way, women are funny. See; Yamaneika Saunders, Whitney Cummings, Rachel Feinstein, Rosebud Baker, and Bonnie McFarland, to name just a few.)
HER REAL NAME
Her real name is Kirson Braff, which I love. It sounds like a surfer from Michigan. Someone completely out of place everywhere they go. Jessica Kirson is poetic. Kirson Braff is a trig quiz. I get the change. Her stepbrother is Zach Braff, of Scrubs fame, which is a good little nugget I didn’t know. She’s from West Orange, New Jersey and she’s gay and married. And like I mentioned earlier she’s one of the funniest people on the planet.
WORKS HER ASS OFF
She does. She has I think three podcasts, has done about eleven thousand specials, has a fantastic Patreon channel, produced a great doc on women comics, and has a show on The Mint that has her working with Yamaneika Saunders and Rachel Feinstein two of my favorite comics.
Jessica does a lot of crowd work and it’s easy to think she only does that because she’s so good at it and that’s what she shows on social media a lot, but she has a lot of really great bits and tells a boatload of stories that are obviously real. Achingly real. There are truly no boundaries for her. She’s wide open all of the time, full speed.
NEW YORK COMIC
By and large she’s a New York comic. Part of the Cellar crowd, but she’s been out in LA a bit. She just sold out the main room of The Comedy Store and had quite a night. She’s really pretty incredible. Out there. My kind of comedy. She’s Sam Kinison meets Phyliss Diller with a dash of Don Rickles and Robin Williams. Quick as hell, truly fluid, dark, witty, and so damn real. Watch her specials, check out her Mint show, most important, go see her live.
