About the Author

Jessica Holmes has brought the house down with her unique brand of comedy, opening for giants such as Ellen DeGeneres, Russell Peters, Jerry Seinfeld, and Oprah Winfrey. Combining stand up, music and improvisation, she honed her skills at Just For Laughs and the world-famous Second City before moving on to television. Her Carol Burnett-style series The Holmes Show and her knack for skewering celebrities like Nikki Minaj, Britney Spears, and Celine Dion have made her a favourite with audiences across the country. Also a wellness advocate, Jessica is known for speaking candidly about her experience with depression. She mixes comedy with a validating message about life's challenges, and has become a celebrated voice in fighting the stigma surrounding mental health issues in her keynotes. In 2018 she became an ambassador for the Bell Let's Talk campaign and wrote the hilarious and touching memoir Depression The Comedy. A mother of 2 (and wife of 1), Jessica's passion is finding the humour in life's imperfections, and turning embarrassments into punchlines.


"An uplifting memoir we can all relate to, and the funniest book about depression you're ever going to read." --Kathryn Greenwood, Whose Line Is It Anyway?"Jessica Holmes has delivered a powerful 'antidepressant' with this hilarious, informative, and heartwarming book." --Dr. Shimi Kang, psychiatrist, bestselling author of The Dolphin Parent "Jessica's ability to open up about painful things in a way that make them hilarious and beautiful is astounding! This book will make you laugh, make you feel brave and make you feel like you are normal and wonderful just the way you are!"
--Aisha Alfa, comedian, Just For Laughs
