With roots in Syracuse, Jessimae sought comedic pastures first in Boston at the age of 19 where she performed improv with “The Tribe,” laying the sod for what would become a burgeoning spontaneous brand of original comedy. In 2007, Jessimae began to bud on stages in the mighty five-borough metropolis. She's finding her voice while paving her own way through the comedy scene. Jessimae has also leapt onto the small screen with appearances on “The Tyra Banks Show” and Tru TV’s “All Worked Up” to compliment her extensive commercial work, which includes an international Nintendo ad campaign. She was a finalist at the Boston Comedy Festival, North Carolina Comedy&Arts Festival, Women in Comedy Festival, NYC’s Funniest Comedian Contest and featured on the Five Funny Females Tour. On a yearly basis, with increasing triumph, Jessimae returns to the ‘Cuse to host her “Hometown Humour Tour” show at the Palace Theatre. Most recently, Jessimae has launched a weekly Tuesday night comedy show at the One & One Pub on the Lower East Side in Manhattan. She was also chosen to perform for Stand Up Norge Summer Series, a prestigious comedy festival in Oslo Norway that only invites one American comic per year. Watch for Peluso on MTV in the fall!
