LIMERICK comic Jennifer Hartnett is making funny news for 2015.
The Corbally woman, who moved stateside 13 years ago, has started production on her very own news show through YouTube Studios. Jennifer has been back on Eastern shores no less that 24 hours after her Christmas visit home, and has already started to work on the project.
Jennifer told the Limerick Post “I pitched the idea to YouTube Studios myself as well as a couple of other comics. I want to use comic commentators to do smart material on current events. The goal is to use comedy to educate. I feel people don’t engage politically because they don’t have the confidence. So this will be a satirical news show covering many topics like health, news, politics etc.”
Its about making international content entertaining whilst phasing out the Kardashians and other ridiculous pop-culture acts.”
As well as being a comic, Jennifer is a model and actress who is currently in a national commercial for Weight Watchers in the US. She has also featured in commercials for Hooters, Coors Light, Hollywood Jeans and a funny instructional video for SCRABBLE (HASBRO) which received over 800,000 hits on BuzzFeed.
She is signed with Osbrink one of the largest commercial agencies in the US and 90210 Talent agency in Los Angeles. She also hosts her own show “For Feck Sake” at clubs throughout California including the world famous Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard.
Jennifer revealed a segment for her news show which she said she is quite excited about. “It’s called Luscious Ladies Liquored Literary Society or LLLLS. It will be a book club about non-fiction books. Smart books, political books, but to make it funny.”
“The first production meeting for the show is this week and then it will be a few weeks before we begin shooting. I won’t do anything with the show until it’s perfect and I am happy with everything,” she said.
Jennifer has already kicked off her busy New Year with a bang by presenting awards at the 2015 Mobile Excellence Awards at YouTube Studios in Los Angeles on Tuesday night.
Speaking about her departure back to California, Jennifer said: “The sky is the limit in L.A but I must admit I do miss my home, I miss my friends and family. It’s great to come home.”
