Jessica Munna

About Jessica

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

Jessica is known for her 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 5 million times.

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

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

A lover of comedy, Jessica’s comedy sketch about introverts in lockdown is featured on digital comedy website WHOHAHA. She was commissioned in 2022 by Barrel Organ, Spin Arts, and Bradford Producing Hub to share 20 minutes of her comedy show What A Drag.
