Jessica Fostekew

Jess was nominated for The Dave Edinburgh Comedy Award ‘Best Show’ for her show Hench, in 2019 which has since had a sold out, international tour. She has since appeared on Live at the ApolloQI and Harry Hill’s Clubnite. As an actor she starred in feature films Greed and Official Secrets, Dawn French’s The Trouble with Maggie Cole on ITV, Sharon Horgan’s Motherland on BBC 2 and is an episode guest lead in Series 5 of Cuckoo on BBC and Netflix.

She hosts her own podcast Hoovering all about eating which in less than a year has racked up nearly half a million downloads.

Jess is a regular co-host of behemoth podcast The Guilty Feminist and is all set to host a brilliant new podcast from the same producers in 2019 called X, Y, Z Boom.

She’s also been the regular host for several years now of BBC R4 Extra’s Comedy Club in the closing hours of weeknights
