Jessie can’t afford therapy so she makes films. Her work has been featured on Jezebel, The Daily Beast, and The Huffington Post. Jessie was selected for the 6 Points Artist Fellowship which inspired her comedic web series entitled Dude, Where’s my Chutzpah? Her short Meet my Rapist, a dark comedy about running in to her rapist at the farmers market, debuted at the 2014 Slamdance Film Festival. Currently Jessie is developing several TV projects including “Skinny Bitch” a comedy about women, bodies, and food. Jessie makes films to make the world feel like home.  She lives in Los Angeles with her plants. 

“Jessie Kahnweiler’s work is reminiscent of Louis C.K. The best comedy doesn’t just make us laugh. It forces us to ask questions about what our laughter means.” – Nico Lang
