 alt=  alt=

There’s always an adoring space in our hearts for cute gals and Jessica Jolly is as endearing as they come. Her enthusiasm for her craft comes shining through and this smiley actress is known for her comedic endeavors. From stand-up comedy to funny shorts, she has caught the eye and with her sweet features it’s easy to take a shine to her. At this year’s massive LA Shorts Fest where there will be 300+ films screening, Jessica has a supporting role in a talented, gorgeous cast in the dramatic “Join Us”. It tells of a cult leader who has a hold on his followers and for one of them, the mission he assigns may be a bridge too far for her to cross. Written by the enigmatic actress Brooke Lenzi whom I’ve featured before and who also stars, this female-centric short has riveting substance throughout and begs the question why a madman can be so persuasive with just mere words!

On a lighter note, watch her in the sketch “Employing Revenge” as Kelly an unemployment worker who gets a surprise visit from the very woman who once bullied her and starts exacting her revenge. Enjoy the caustic humor which is written by the creatively adept Jessica herself. Playing the bad girl is always that much more fun! Having read that she was called ‘lithe and lovely and in command of her game by Splash magazine, we can’t wait for her next iteration be it in comedy or drama.
