Hench Version 2.0 - The re-remembering…(code for new bits tucked in, here and there).
Absolute powershed and regular host of The Guilty Feminist, Jessica Fostekew explores her big strong strength. Have you ever watched a feminist try and take ‘hench’ as a compliment? It’s like watching a snake eat but funny.
Hench was nominated for the Dave’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show, Best Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival and it won best show in the 2020 Chortle Awards, Jessica also taking best break-through act.
‘A brilliant piece of storytelling.’★★★★ Scotsman
You’ve seen Jessica on BBC’s Live at the Apollo, QI and Richard Osman’s House of Games, in BBC sitcoms Motherland and Cuckoo and BAFTA Award-winning drama Three Girls. She’s also in Michael Winterbottom’s feature film, Greed.
'an hour of polished, observational humour which will render you bemused, breathless and educated.'
'This really is a masterful set...absolutely flawless.'
'Subtly intelligent, Hench is exceptionally delivered and performed...a great piece of stand-up.'
