I love to laugh and I love to cry -- sometimes at the same time -- and I love to make you do the same. I'm an actress-slash-writer-slash standup comic. I came at this game a little ass-backwards: first writing, then I caught the acting bug which, truth be told, I had all along, I was just too young and afraid to 'act' on it. Now I'm going full-tilt on all fronts, as the multi-hyphenate that I am, and I am thrilled to share my work with you.
Some reviews from my performance as Margaret in John Kolvenbach's GOLDFISH at the Hollywood Fringe Festival:
"The parents were both excellent in their parts, especially the mother. Jessica Abrams was on point throughout the entire show. Smart, edgy, brash. Absolutely perfect."
-- Erik Blair
"Particularly cutting and hilarious are the words of Margaret, delivered with a jaded deftness by the riveting Jessica Abrams."
-- Marnie Olson
"The mom character (Jessica Abrams) was my favorite part of the show."
