Jen is a BAFTA nominated Writer, Presenter and Performer from London.
After a career as a Primary School teacher, Jen started her comedy career as part of sketch comedy duo 'Jiggle and Hyde'. They wrote their hour-long show and completed their first Edinburgh Fringe run in 2016. The following year Jen took her first solo character comedy show ‘Girl in Da Corner’ for a full Edinburgh Fringe run. The show was inspired by the responses to this article written by Jen about her Anglo-Indian heritage for Gal-Dem. Following this, the show then transferred to Soho Theatre. She then performed her own solo comedy set in the BBC tent at Edinburgh Fringe the following year which was aired on BBC iplayer, as part of the BBC Asian Network comedy event.
