West Yorkshire-born Jessica is one of the UK’s most sought-after comedy talents. She created, wrote, produced and starred in four series of her hit comedy show Drifters which was the highest rated sitcom on E4 and repeated on Channel 4 to much critical acclaim, described by The Guardian as ‘essential viewing’. Following the second series of the show, Knappett was nominated for an RTS award for Best Comedy Writer and a Broadcast award.

As an actress she has starred in a number of films, playing Lisa in and The Inbetweeners Movie, appearing in Steve Coogan’s Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa and starring alongside David Schwimmer in TV Movie Irreversible.

Jessica’s natural comic sensibility has seen her become a regular fixture on a score of entertainment shows such as Taskmaster, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Cats Does Countdown, The Last Leg, Drunk History, Travel Man: 48 Hours In…, Hypothetical, The Russell Howard Hour, Judge Romesh and Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled.

As a writer, she is currently co-exec producer on an upcoming series for HBO and developing a raft of new pilots for the UK and US. She has written for The Independent, Glamour, The Guardian, Shortlist and NME.

There is no end to her talents: she can also do a faultless impression of an air horn.
