Welsh comedian Jenny Collier played Always Be Comedy in 2017. First on the bill, her set was very energetic yet very endearing immediately at ease with the audience. Collier was extremely chatty with the crow and her routines were a series of emissions making her completely unemployable. However, the comedy was performed in such an enthusiastic way that people were rooting for her to succeed and chase her dreams by the end of the set.
The comedian delivered a ten-minute set as a guest on The Noise Next Door’s Comedy Lock-In at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2018. Collier delivered tales of modern London life and her self-declared disastrous love life. Her bizarre stories were enjoyable, relatable, and funny.
In March 2022, Collier was the opening act on the bill at Headliners Comedy Club that I watched. In total command of the audience, her material was razor-sharp with extreme payoffs to the jokes and stories. She was a pleasure to watch and got the night off to a great start.
In April 2023, I watched the film The Oldest Comedy Club in Britain, a celebration of 40 years of Downstairs at The Kings Head comedy club in Crouch End, London. Collier was on the panel for a question-and-answer session after the film and had performed many times at the club.
