jenkates.jpgA writer/performer for the last several years, Jennifer is an original member of the Muffin Basket Cases, a group of seven women solo performers who wrote and performed a new show each week. Jennifer is a former cast member with Beastwomen Female Cabaret, co-creator of Numbskull the Human Blockhead, and is an original member of the kates.

Since 2007 Jennifer has been a recurring writer and performer with the multi-talented ladies of the kates. Hosted by the uproariously funny Kelsie Huff, the kates feature a rotating cast of female performers dishing out comedy, solo performance, clowning, and more.

Since then the duo have shared their spine-tingling feats throughout the Midwest and at such Chicago staples as the Abbie Hoffman Died For Our Sins Festival, Neo-Futurarium, Theatre Building Chicago, and the Lakeshore Theatre among others. In 2009 they were thrilled to join Les Claypool's Oddity Faire at the Riviera Theatre.

Numbskull and Saucy Jen were last seen at the Lincoln Lodge terrifying patrons at the Halloween Spooktacular.
