Jessica Munna

About Jessica

I am a US-born/UK-based & LAMDA-trained actor, writer, and educator.

My first solo show Pieces Of Us received critical acclaim at EdFringe 2023, praised as “heartfelt” & “poignant” by The Scotsman and described by Broadway Baby as a work that “hangs around under your fingernails long after you’ve left the theatre.”

I am known for my portrayal of The Woman in Finn Callan’s cult horror film, “Guest” which premiered at FrightFest and ScreamFest to critical acclaim and has been viewed on YouTube over 10 million times.

I began my career in film production and am a lover of comedy. I scratch my filmmaking/comedy itch by making experimental comedy/film shorts and I release them on my Youtube channel, The Factory.

A classically trained LAMDA graduate, member of the Young Vic Creators Program, and alumni of SOHO Theatre Comedy & Offie-winning Degenerate Fox, I draw from my varied experience in documentary film, theatre, jazz singing, and satire to make original performances that explore female experience, death, & capitalism.

I was a commissioned artist in 2022 by Barrel Organ, Spin Arts, and Bradford Producing Hub to share 20 minutes of my comedy show What A Drag.

An adventurer at heart, I’ve travelled & worked in 30+ countries facilitating arts outreach, education, & performance projects, making films, and busking. I received a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship in 2012 to pursue community service & to study jazz in South Africa, where I performed in Cape Town in live music, theatre, sketch/improv comedy, & short films.
