Jenna Carley is an actress, writer and comedian based in Los Angeles.


She was born and raised in the suburbs of Seattle before moving to New York to study Drama and Musical Theatre at New York University (Tisch). Later she moved to Los Angeles where she developed a passion for stand-up and sketch comedy.

For two years Jenna was a writer and performer for THE BABES sketch team at the Acme Comedy Theater, and later originated the role of "Taylor R." in UCB’s long-running BACHELOR MUSICAL PARODY. 

Video of her stand-up debut was posted on YouTube and quickly found a wide online audience. She went on to win the first round of Uncle Clyde's Comedy Contest at Flappers Comedy Club in 2018 and has since performed at the Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store, The Upright Citizens Brigade and many other venues in Los Angeles and New York City. 

Additionally in 2018 she co-wrote, produced and starred in an autobiographical short film, MARRIED. NO KIDS. The film received Best Comedy nominations from indie festivals across the country.

The project Jenna is most proud of is her podcast, MEET MY MOM WITH JENNA CARLEY, where she lovingly tortures her favorite comedians by interviewing their parents while they sit helplessly nearby.

 

Most recently Jenna had the honor of acting alongside Taika Waititi, Nick Kroll and Kristen Schaal as "Eugenia" in OUR FLAG MEANS DEATH on HBO Max.

When she isn’t writing or performing, Jenna enjoys working on a wide range of design projects. Her creative work has been featured in Style Me Pretty and Hello Giggles, and her viral pregnancy announcement is one of the most popular on YouTube with over 3 million views.
