Jen Brister: The Optimist

presented by Little Wander

After 76 sold out shows across the country Jen is extending ‘The Optimist’ tour for a third and final time….. 

If middle age has taught Jen Brister anything, it's that optimism does not come naturally to her. In fact it's fair to say that her cup is very much half empty and she's making no attempt to fill it. Can Jen work against her natural instincts and finally see the light? Or will she stay the same old pessimistic naysayer she's always been. I mean, I think we know the answer to that, but let's try and be optimistic.

“No one does furious better than Brister.”

The Guardian

“Her energy is explosive. Her use of space and delivery, mesmerising.”

The Sunday Times

“A phenomenal display of sinewy stand up.”
