Jenna Suffern is a comedian, producer and writer. She has an engaging presence and a flair for performance, bringing an off the cuff and kooky approach to comedy.

Jenna is a known face in the Sydney comedy scene, and has a passion for producing events for the queer community.

Among her many other spinning plates, she is the co-founder and host of Two Queers Walk Into A Bar comedy night, the producer of Queer Table Reads, producer for the theatre collective The General Public, and is a regular contributor to Pedestrian.TV.

Despite all of this, her biggest achievement was once being introduced as a "prominent Sydney lesbian".

A comedy set inside a public bathroom? You gotta be sh*tting me...

Over the course of a drunken night out, old friends and strangers come together in the most sacred of spaces – the public bathroom – to bare all (both figuratively and literally). HOT MESS cracks open the cubicle door to reveal stories of late-night shenanigans and surprising solidarity in the fleeting friendships that are forged behind usually closed doors.

"It's a love letter to the messiness that centres and uplifts the experiences of women, queer women and non-binary people" Sydney Morning Herald

"Jenna Suffern is a particularly bright spark as an anxious lesbian fresh off a breakup" Sydney Morning Herald

TWO QUEERS FESTIVAL
PRODUCER

On November 6th to 21st 2020, Two Queers Productions and Giant Dwarf Theatre transformed Giant Dwarf Theatre into the queer hub of Sydney, for a comedy and musical spectacle.

Two Queers Festival, being an eclectic expansion of the monthly queer comedy night Two Queers Walk Into A Bar, followed in its main purpose, to provide queer audiences and allies with shows that foster an all-inclusive community, as well as creating an economy for these artists and performers.

Jenna also co-produced a variety of shows including "Let's Talk About Queer Sex" a panel discussion about the intricacies of the queer experience, and a live table read of the iconic queer cult film, "But I'm A Cheerleader" which included queer comedians Zoe Coombs Marr, Nina Oyama, Rebecca Shaw, Vic Zerbst, Tommy Misa, Carlo Richie, Enoch Mailangi and Darren Lesaguis.
