Jen Saunderson brings an imaginatively whimsical and sometimes dark style of humor. Her bizarre upbringing, tales of a baby-obsessed mother and an unwavering desire to stay independent all play a part in making this 5’1’’ spitfire a unique voice in comedy.

She’s been a judge’s favorite on Season 6 of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, which took her to Vegas, can been seen on Comedy Central’s AtomTV and FOX’s Laughs. She was recently named Seattle’s Best Comedian by Seattle Weekly.

Saunderson took third in the Protected content Comedy Festival Competition in New York which hosted 60 female comics.

When not on stage or writing Saunderson can be found indulging in her other passion, baking, for her web series, “The Filling is Mutual”, which will be featured soon on iFC’s Comedy Crib.
