Jessi Klein is a comedian who is featured in "Comedy Central Presents" Season 15.

Jessi Klein was born and raised in New York City. She attended Vassar College, where she spent 4 years as a writer and performer for the school's sketch group. After college, Jessi moved back to Manhattan and began performing stand-up comedy. She quickly caught the eye of scouts at NBC who made her a regular at the PSNBC workspace. After only two years of doing stand-up, Time Out NY called her one of their Top 10 Comics We Never Get Tired Of in December 2002, listing her alongside such names as Sarah Silverman and Dave Attell.

After winning the first ever Emerging Comics of New York award for Best Female Stand-Up in March 2003, she made her television stand-up debut on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend." She was a regular commentator on VH1's "Best Week Ever," a weekly roundup of pop culture. Jessi's sharp insights on that show have led to appearances on CNBCs "Topic A with Tina Brown" as well as an appearance on NBC's "The Today Show," CNN's "American Morning" and "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn" on Comedy Central. She has also completed work as the lead voice on a pilot for Cartoon Network from the creators of the cult hit "Home Movies."
