Comedian Jessica Gross on "Mr. Bang Bus," Awkward Swagger, and How to be Her Valentine

Categories: Comedy
Calling Jessica Gross prolific is an understatement. It would probably be much easier to call her by the many titles she's worked so hard to earn: comedian, cartoonist, writer, horoscope mocker, host of comedy nights all around Miami, 2011 New Times Broward-Palm Beach Best Comedian, heckler annihilator, former Cultist contributor, and most of all, "that tall hot funny chick."

But don't let those good looks deceive better taste; she would be as outstanding an entertainer if she wore a six foot tall burlap sack and was the victim of a jealous comedian conspiracy that involved a jar full of sulfuric acid.

Don't get any ideas.

Her comedic skills have landed her a slot on an upcoming comedy show curated by South Florida comedy gurus The Have Nots, taking place February 23 at Just The Funny Theater in Coral Gables. The show focuses on local talent, nine Florida comedians coming together to display their skills that will be filmed for, an online provider of comedy content based in Los Angeles.

While the other comedians on the bill have their own reasons to be proud, Jessica brings her own brand of female locker room talk. Call it a form of new meta-feminism, one that goes beyond the worries of the feminine mystique and presents it in the same way a guy proudly displays his balls while drying off in a room full of strangers after a good workout.

Its probably how she earned the moniker "Jessica Is Gross."

We asked Gross about her brief time living in New York City, her comedy, and why she won't give a short dudes a chance.
