Jess Karamjeet had plans - ambitious ones and downright evil ones - but her dad died and she’s in the queer dating-pool again after four years. There’s also the tiny issue of being a writer and performer, with men like Mayor Brown skulking around...But Jess is fighting!  

Redundant is a rally cry for creatives, misfits and contradictory humans: an hour of stand-up and songs navigating grief, queer and bi-racial identity, and the taboo power of hidden disabilities. 

Jess was selected by the NZ Comedy Trust for their filmed Ones To Watch showcase, and her duo comedy music show GRIEF-SEX-RACE ran at the curated Q Theatre for Auckland Fringe Festival 2022 to rave reviews.  
“Jess has a gentle charisma which fuels her comedy in a unique way, making her a joy to watch.” – Theatrescenes  

“Jess is a comedy triple threat: great joke writer, phenomenal story-teller, and excellent performer!” - Tim Batt, NZ Comedian 

“Authentic! I think it’s high time we see people of colour telling specific stories.” – Audience member 

“I loved how (GRIEF-SEX-RACE) showed that grief isn't always sad, and that it can be wacky and funny and it's okay to laugh about it.” - Audience member 

Winner – PANNZ Award 2022, for GRIEF-SEX-RACE
