Jennifer Jermany -Feature Comedian, Actress Hometown: Houston, Texas Comedian Jennifer Jermany believes rules were made to broken. Not what you’d expect from one of Houston’s finest teachers, however Jermany knows valuable lessons can come from taking big chances. Her fiery, fearless perspective comes alive on stage and consumes every audience that sees this dynamic humorist at work. A sensational blend of street smarts and formal education, the Texas Southern University graduate expresses what many comics avoid; observations that sharply echo what most people are thinking but Jermany has the nerve to convey. And that she does; from the moment she walks on to the stage you realize, nothing is off limits. Every movement is precisely timed; every charged phrase is loaded with bone crushing hilarity and truth as intense as the brilliant comic who is the source. She taps a deep well of pain, loss, passion, and an uncontrollable urge to entertain and bring laughter.

Jermany is a staunch advocate for diversity in comedy, always working to elevate the role and material of women in a male dominated industry. She’s a student of the art of comedy and of all the kids she loves to teach. As far as she is concerned, comedy and life are not mutually exclusive.
