Jen Saunderson brings to the stage an imaginatively whimsical and sometimes dark style of humor. Her bizarre upbringing, tales of a baby-obsessed mother and an unwavering desire to stay independent all play a part in making this 5’1’’ spitfire one of the most unique stand-up comedians around!

She’s been a judge’s favorite on Season 6 of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, which took her to Vegas, can been seen on Comedy Central’s AtomTV and FOX’s Laughs. Saunderson was featured in the movie Kuso (2017) that premiered at Sundance. She was also named Seattle’s Best Comedian by Seattle Weekly.

In addition, Saunderson has performed in a variety of comedy festivals most notably Bumbershoot (Seattle), Bridgetown (Portland), SF Sketchiest (San Francisco), and the Women in Comedy Festival (Boston). She took third in the 2015 She-Devil Comedy Festival Competition in New York which hosted 60 female comics.

When not on stage or writing Saunderson can be found indulging in her other passion, baking, for her web series on IFC called, “The Filling is Mutual.” “The Filling is Mutual” is a unique combination of sweets and laughs in which she and friend, Jenny Zigrino connect with comedians to use jokes as an inspiration for the creation of delicious treats.
