Jay has been performing comedy since 2005 working all over the UK as well as in Los Angeles and Toronto. An experienced compere and stand-up Jay has an easy manner on stage, instantly connecting with her audience – whether a rowdy group of stags and hens or a serene ladies luncheon Jay’s quick wit has them eating out the palm of her hand.
The girl next door persona allows her to get a way with the darker jokes that punctuate her material. With comedy described as chocolate covered hand grenades. Don’t be mistaken this girl can melt butter – sometimes by using a flamethrower. Clever material delivered with effortless charm and packing a bite every bit as bad as its bark.
