Jen Brister Wishful Thinking (UK)

UK comedian Jen Brister returns to Melbourne with a brand new show and this time it’s all about politics. OK, that’s not strictly true. Jen wants to be more politically active, she wants to take a stand for the things she believes in BUT she also wants to go to the garden centre. Can she fit it all in or is that just wishful thinking? 

"This is as near perfect stand up as I have seen. ★★★★★" Scotsgay (UK)

“Brister is as gorgeous as she is funny. ★★★★” Time Out (UK)

"Her expressive face, complemented by comic timing and knowing when to be still, underpin line after perfectly pitched line. ★★★★" The List (UK)

“Both clever and personal…Hilarious. ★★★★” Adelaide Advertiser

"Brister possesses a magnetic personality. ★★★★" Edinburgh Evening News

“Illuminating and hilarious... had her small but perfectly formed audience in stitches. ★★★★” Chortle
