"A WANNABE
WANDA SYKES"
-My mother-in-law
 

Hi! I'm Jenna.

I’m an actress, writer and comedian in Los Angeles. My friends describe me as “Impossible to make plans with.” 

  

That’s because I:

  • Do STAND-UP all over town at The Comedy Store, The Laugh Factory, and Flappers Comedy Club.

  • Host the 'MEET MY MOM WITH JENNA CARLEY'  podcast.

  • Write and perform for THE BABES in a monthly sketch show at the Acme Comedy Theater.

  • Am currently playing Taylor R. in UCB's BACHELOR MUSICAL Parody.

  • Manage my thrifted home decor booth ROOKIE DIGS at the Rose Bowl Flea Market.

  • Entertain my parents who are seemingly always in town. 

 

Originally I'm from Seattle where I survived two older brothers and went on to study Drama and Musical Theatre at NYU Tisch (CAP21 RIP). Since moving from NYC to LA I've studied acting at Lesly Kahn & Co, improv at UCB and the Groundlings, and advanced sketch writing at UCB.

Check out my upcoming shows!
