About The Editor


Yep, that's me and Slash. You wouldn't know it from the smile on my face, but I was actually so starstruck that I couldn't speak. Which is odd, because I'm not a Guns & Roses fan. Don't get me wrong - I have a dark (but proud!) hair metal past. However, I tend to cleave to the likes of Motley Crue, RATT, and Def Leppard. But there I was in front of Slash and the only thing I could process was, "Holy shit!" I stood in front of him, pinwheeling my arms and pointing to my phone. Slash looked confused... and slightly alarmed. (Which is saying a lot for a man who was once forced to spend an inordinate amount of time with Axl Rose.) Luckily my husband stepped in. With a patient sigh he said, "This is my wife, Jenna. She's trying to ask if she can take a picture with you." The answer, after Slash paused for a sigh of relief, was obviously "Yes." 

Of course the real star in this photo is the man in red - the legendary Bob Heil who, thanks to his numerous gifts, has helped shape music behind the scenes for decades. Here we are, immortalized. The socially awkward nerd, the genius, the Jager-soaked rock star* who's wickedly hot in person. And let's not forget Larry Crane - the man behind the camera who helps keep my crazy in check. 

This site is updated regularly to reflect my upcoming shows as a comedian, as well as the comedy events that I produce. Drop me a line at jenna@jennazine.com for both kinds of bookings: as a comedian, and also if you would like to be considered for one of my showcases. Naturally I love the emails asking me to perform for you - but I'm also DTB (down to book)!
