Rodney Stewart
Every sketch troupe needs a resident black man, and for The Baby Jessicas, their brother from another mother is Rodney Stewart. A highly sought-after DJ, emcee and writer, Rodney has been entertaining crowds for many years onstage, in film (and occasionally) in bed. This supremely talented performer originally hails from Brooklyn, New York. Do you have a problem with that? We didn’t think so.

Jennifer Wagner

Her quirky cast of characters have appeared on the Vancouver Theatresports League stage, as a part of That's Hilarious comedy company events and with the uber talented Laff Riot Girls. Jen has also trained with improv guru Keith Johnstone and taken workshops in Chicago and Vancouver. She is on a path of self discovery searching for spiritual awareness, universal consciousness and a firm butt.

Who is Baby Jessica?
Jessica McClure is a native of Midland, Texas, who was trapped in a well when she was an 18-month old toddler. Her tragic – but ultimately uplifting – 58 hour ordeal attracted around-the-clock media attention and resulted in the filming of a completely unwatchable made-for-TV movie starring Patty Duke and Beau Bridges.

Why would you name a comedy troupe in honor of an infamous toddler?
Because all of the other good names like Crotch Rot and Accidental Goat Sodomy had already been taken.
