About This Show

Jess Thom has Tourette’s syndrome, a condition that makes her say ‘biscuit’ 16,000 times a day. Her unusual neurology gives her a unique perspective on life; one she’s about to share with the world. Accompanied by her assistant Chopin, Jess weaves comedy, puppetry, singing, and incredible tics to explore spontaneity, creativity, disability, and things you never knew could make you laugh.

Languge warning: Jess is one of the 10% of people with Tourettes Syndrome who has swearing tics, so this performance may include the involuntary use of words that some audiences may find offensive.
