Jen Brister is one of those comics who has been excellent for a long time and is finally getting some proper recognition. Her passionate, witty material about love, motherhood and human relationships is backed up a real talent for characterisation, and lashings of anger and self-doubt; a bulletproof bag of nerves if you will... We talk about her brief stint as a BBC6 Music presenter, how her subsequent fall from grace reinvigorated her comedy career, and what was going through her mind as she walked onstage at Live At The Apollo...
