Feathers New Talent Competition and 1st place winner of the Walk the Plank comedy competition, beating out 100 comics for the top prize.

Jesse Fernandez resides in San Francisco and has been professionally writing, telling and drawing jokes for over a decade. Jesse dances around social norms in an unpredictable gait, delivering punchlines that sweep you off your feet when you least expect it and kiss you passionately on the lips. His jokes are light but have a tinge of gravity, like tendrils of steam rising from a sexy Russian sauna patron. Jesse has written for ABC, MSN, Starbucks, Frito-Lay, Hitachi and TED Talks. He was also a staff writer at eBaum’s World for about 4 years and head writer there for 3 years. Jesse was lucky enough to give a talk at the International Society for Humor Studies.
