The proudly Welsh Jenny Collier is a multi-award winning stand up comedian, writer and actor. An established regular on the international club and festival circuit, Jenny has supported Jason Manford, Arthur Smith, Shappi Khorsandi and Dave Johns on their UK tours and has performed in Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore, Switzerland and Australia where she won the Percy Award during the Adelaide Fringe.

The sharp tongued, multi-lingual Jenny has mastered the art of deftly welcoming her audiences into a false sense of security with her lilting Welsh twang, before taking a dramatic U-turn with her outrageously raw punchlines. She leaves audiences squirming in their seats, head in hands and always wanting more. Her perfectly crafted, confident and in command performances are a favourite at clubs and festivals everywhere. An unapologetically bold, brilliant and seriously talented rising star.

Jenny has appeared on The Rhod Gilbert Show (BBC Wales), New Comedian of the Year Award (BBC Radio 4 Extra), The Comedy Club (BBC Radio 4 Extra), What’s The Story (BBC Wales), Newsbeat (BBC Radio 1), The Leak (BBC Wales) and has written for BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz, The Now Show, Huffington Post and Glamour Magazine.
