Jennifer Dronsky has been collecting prestigious comedy awards such as “Winner of the first Alameda Comedy Competition” and Three time “Dirty Haiku Battle Champion”.

Jennifer draws upon the odd happenings and uncomfortable conversations that seem to be omnipresent in her life. Performing a continuous response to life in a self deprecating “what I wanted to say was this”, sort of way. With her charismatic style and uproarious foul mouth, Jennifer Dronsky is sure to make even your curmudgeonly relatives laugh.
