Jessica Fostekew : Luxury Tramp - One4Review
Jessica Fostekew is not someone I had come across before seeing her this year. The sauna that is her space in Gilded Balloon’s Wee Room is generally full to capacity so that is telling you she is beginning to make an impact on the world of comedy.
Jessica is an oxymoron lover, two words that seem to oppose each other in the same sentence; hence the show title is thus explained.
She is straight into her set, the mike dispensed with as she goes unplugged through a hour full of material and her powerful semi-posh voice, her words, carries easily throughout the room.
The subject matter is mostly autobiographical, a fair amount draws on references to her somewhat extended family, occasionally self-deprecating, yet always funny and draws laughter from everyone throughout her entertaining set. I suspect she is an actor as well as a really good comic, as the voices she can conjurer up are so good, and don’t get me started on the sexy travel girl voice she produces!!!
All in all Jess is a comedian I will look forward to seeing again hopefully in the near future.
