“Not just a comedian. Blaine blends seriousness and absurdity to an art form where even the joke that bombs, brilliantly delivers you a laugh afterward.” Ron K. of Underground at Ron’s

About the Artist
Jennifer Blaine has been performing solo shows for 25+ years. Her original works delve into serious and socially relevant issues and provide audiences the opportunity to unite in laughter. She’s opened for George Carlin and performed with Chris Rock and Joe Piscopo. The Philadelphia Daily News says “her comic genius is like Lily Tomlin and Tracey Ullman.” Some of her 15 Philadelphia FringeArts works include Sorry, White Flight, Hearing Voices, and Ridiculous, which asked the audience to end the patriarchy once and for all, and “The Vicissitudes of Travel” a sort of bus ride through a beloved family member’s brain surgery, in which Blaine plays 10 characters including the brain tumor, and last year’s PACKAGE DEAL. She is now at work on a musical, MANNEQUIN, which will have 3 versions: a solo show, an ensemble for 4 and ensemble for 16.
