Genuinely one of the best stand up performances I've seen. Super slick storytelling and actual laugh out loud moments all the way through.

#jessfostekew #jessicafostekew #wench had the audience in the palm of her hand. Mingetopiary, lockdown friendships and modern dating are all discussed. I'm leaving with the cat's face burned on my retinas though *****
