Absolute powershed and regular host of The Guilty Feminist, Jessica Fostekew explores her big strong strength. Have you ever watched a feminist try and take ‘hench’ as a compliment? It’s like watching a snake eat but funny.

In preview, Hench was nominated for Best Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival.

You’ve seen Jessica in BBC sitcoms Motherland and Cuckoo and BAFTA Award-winning drama Three Girls.

She’s also in forthcoming feature films: Gavin Hood’s Official Secrets and Michael Winterbottom’s Greed. She writes for 8 out of 10 Cats.
