Called “Brave and Bawdy” by Time Out Chicago and “Righteous and Chipper” by the Times-Picayune, Jessica Halem was raised by hippie Jewish artists from the East Coast which was anything but normal – or easy – in small-town Ohio, but did help to foster this very funny “on-your-face” comic who puts her queer spin on everything from Sudafed to Feminism to Glory Holes.
Jessica Halem was trained in femme queerness Sarah Lawrence College, earned her chops as a social justice activist working for Bella Abzug and as a LGBTQ health activist running the Lesbian Community Cancer Project.
