Absolute powershed Jessica Fostekew explores her big strong strength.
Have you ever watched a feminist try and take ‘hench’ as a compliment? It’s like watching a snake eat, but funny. In this show, Jess extols the joys of weightlifting, decries the pressures put on women by the diet industry and explores the evolutionary advantage of having legs like a prize ham.
Powerhouse is adapted for BBC Radio 4 from Jessica's 2019 Dave's Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated show, Hench.
