Jennifer (1)
  • Jennifer Hsiung has a last name that no one can pronounce correctly. She loves scones, vanilla ice cream, Game and Thrones, and her kids (perhaps in that order). She was an international television anchor for China Central Television in Beijing for the past 10 years (where she covered two Olympic Games, a G20 Summit, and interviewed a bunch of famous people – half of which you won’t know), and has recently moved back to her hometown of Toronto where she is hustling her ass off to the dismay of her poor husband and kids. She started pursuing stand-up comedy in China in 2015 after baby number two came out, and made her Comedy Central debut in season three of “Stand-Up Asia!” last summer, where her 15 minute set was featured in the first episode with Canadian comedian Sugar Sammy. Two months after giving birth to her third son (yep, the babies just kept coming because clearly she missed the sex-Ed talk on contraception) she competed in the 2017 Hong Kong International Comedy Competition and was the only female to reach the finals. Jennifer has been delighting and disgusting audiences throughout Asia, and now North America.
