About the Artists
JENNIFER BLAINE, actor/writer, has been performing solo shows for 25 years. Her original writing, performing, and comedy delve into serious and socially relevant issues and provide audiences the opportunity to unite in laughter. Jennifer has opened for George Carlin and performed with Chris Rock and Joe Piscopo. According to the Philadelphia Daily News “not even Sybil can compete with Blaine’s cast of characters. Her comic genius is like Lily Tomlin and Tracey Ullman.”
She has performed in every FringeArts for the festival’s first decade. Some of her 15 FringeArts works include Sorry (why women can’t stop apologizing for their existence) White Flight, Hearing Voices, and Ridiculous, which asked the audience to end the patriarchy once and for all. She is working on a new musical, MANNEQUIN, which will have a sneak peek during the Fringe Festival in a piece called Invitation to Play.
