Hysterical

FX ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY

Jessica Kirson is a powerhouse on stage. Her act is a hilariously relatable performance of sheer silliness, vulnerability and ridiculous characters. Kirson’s countless comedic character videos have racked up over 30 million views on social media. Her audience is multigenerational, creating an excuse for large groups of friends and families to spend a night out together.

In an era where only 10% of all touring comedians are female, Kirson stands out as one of the strongest comedians regardless of gender. As her friend Dave Attell says, “I’d hate to follow her.”

Kirson was featured playing herself on the HBO series Crashing with Pete Holmes. She recently served as a consultant, producer and writer, as well as acted in Robert De Niro’s film The Comedian. She has appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The View and Kevin Can Wait. Kirson has a one-hour comedy special on Comedy Central called Bill Burr Presents Jessica Kirson: Talking to Myself.

She was recently awarded “Best Female Comic” by the MAC association in New York City and received the prestigious Nightlife Award for “Best Stand-up Comedian.” In her spare time, Kirson is a regular contributor to Sirius XM’s “The Howard Stern Show” where she produces and stars in prank calls for the program.
