Jess Robinson is a quadruple award-winning comedy impressionist, actor, voice-over artist and classically-trained singer.
She and Kirsty met and became firm friends when Jess joined musical comedy 3-part-harmony trio The Segue Sisters in 2011 for whom Kirsty was musical director and arranger. Jess turned to Kirsty when she decided to take her debut solo show Mighty Voice to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014.
Together, they devised, arranged and performed the spectacular musical mash-ups, improvised “Wheels of 64 Tunes” and the musical set-pieces that set the show apart and dazzled reviewers and audiences, earning them standing ovations, five-star reviews and a Chortle Award nomination.
Kirsty and Jess performed at several comedy festivals around the country and wowed the Cabaret and Maverick Stages at the legendary Glastonbury Festival, bringing the crowd to their feet.
They returned to even more critical acclaim with the follow-up show Jess Robinson: The Rise Of Mighty Voice in 2015 and the show won The Amused Moose People’s Champion Award and also a Mervyn Stutter Pick Of The Fringe award.
Although they amicably went their separate ways in 2016 when Kirsty wrote and performed her debut solo show Life Begins At Party, Jess has returned to the Edinburgh Fringe with a new show every year since; her latest, the wildly successful No Filter, having just rounded off a critically-acclaimed, nationwide tour throughout 2019.
