Jenn Welch is a comedian based in Brooklyn, NY.

She’s the co-founder / producer of WHAT A JOKE: A National Comedy Fest – 89 shows in 34 cities over three days – which raised over $50k for the ACLU on Inauguration Day Weekend 2017 and was featured in The AV Club, Splitsider, The Village Voice, The Interrobang, and more.
She performs stand-up comedy across NYC, and runs two shows: GTFO at Henri’s Backyard in Park Slope, Brooklyn (weekly) and The Half-Hour Hour at The Creek and The Cave in Long Island City, Queens (monthly).

Her hour-long storytelling show “Jenn Welch is Crying! In Public!” sold out multiple dates at the PIT. Her second solo show “Jenn Welch is Dancing! Like Nobody’s Watching!” debuted to a packed house at SOLOCOM 2014, and her interactive solo show “Jenn Welch Thinks You’re a Damn Good Person” was a part of SOLOCOM 2016.
She was recently featured at the New York Comedy Fest, the Memphis Comedy Fest, and the She-Devil Comedy Fest.
