MAKE 'EM LAUGH 7:45 pm

by India Birchall

When a young woman decides to try her hand at stand up for an open mic night, she becomes more comfortable with the audience and starts to open up. All the things she thought she’d forgotten about herself start to resurface and she starts to admit things to the audience that she hasn’t really admitted to herself. As secrets start pouring out of her, the venue becomes her confession box and the audience her priest. What will she admit to next? #StandUpandConfess

About Jessie Jones

Twenty three years old, fat, a dumbass, green hair. Not funny, the best at acting. Great at computer generated models, and artwork. Is this 50 words yet? No? Er... Did I say I was twenty-three already? What else... Er... I like Dr. Who and Netflix' original cartoons. Peace out. kwiteshy.wixsite.com/my-site
