As well as writing her own popular blog, Laura has had articles published by Glamour and Standard Issue. She has also written two stage plays, one of which debuted at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2011, as well as her first novel.
"Rigden is the result of a genetic mash-up between Mitch Benn and Tim Key, perhaps with a few strands of Ricky Gervais's DNA thrown in...Very Funny Stuff." - Steve Bennett, Chortle
Rigden’s musical comedy is deliciously dark...he is very good at working the crowd and of all tonight’s acts he probably made the biggest impression." - Bruce Dessau, beyond the joke
'George Rigden had the audience in his hands thanks to some great comedic timing, a little help from his guitar and a hint of David Mitchell in Peep Show' - Leicester Mercury
Jenny moved from the Welsh mountains to the Big Smoke in 2010 and has since embarked upon a career in stand up comedy. Highlight: Appearing on a BBC Radio Wales panel show with Jo Brand. Low point: After a gig, an audience member saying 'You should be a stripper' (Both secretly highlights).
She has written for BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz, Huffington Post and Glamour Magazine and has traveled (parts of) the world with her comedy. She has performed in Hong Kong, Philippines, Singapore, Switzerland and most recently in Australia where she won the Percy Award for most tickets sold in 'The Imaginarium', (over 1900 tickets) during the Adelaide Fringe.
In August 2016 she performed her debut hour at the Edinburgh Fringe, 'Jen-Hur' which received reviews such as '????? An Excellent comedic work' - Edfest Mag and '???? A brilliant show and well worth a watch' - Arts Award Voice.
