Jenn Weeks, Jacksonville’s best local comedian! 

Although, She is not only a comedian but the official host of the LOL JAX Film Festival, creator of Comedy Cookout Jax and co-creator of Laugh-n-Lyrics. Weeks has traveled the country performing with some of America’s most beloved stand-up comedians. Her high energy, relatable material and stage presence pulls the audience in and keeps them there.

Every year, Weeks collects donations of travel-sized items such as socks, chapstick, deodorants, and kleenex to donate to the homeless community in Jacksonville.
