Outrageous and side-splittingly funny, Glenda Jaxson is known as the Duchess of comedy. Endearing, but with lashings of attitude Glenda knows exactly how to command an audience and you’ll be under her matriarchal spell in no time.
Glenda’s career in comedy started 20 years ago when she accompanied a friend to an audition, whilst on the sidelines throwing suggestions to her friend comedian Rudi Lickwood spotted her and suggested she give the audition a go herself. She did and hasn’t looked back since.
Glenda is a regular on the Jongleurs comedy circuit, the Hackney Empire, Shepherd’s Bush Empire, IndigO2 and comedy clubs in London and throughout the UK. She has worked extensively in Europe and performed in The Gambia in 2006. As a former cancer sufferer Glenda often performs in support of cancer charities and also performs every year at the Hackney Empire in Strictly Come Laughing along with other top comedians to raise funds for a small town in Ghana.
