Cast & Crew

Little Miss Jocelyn

“Little Miss Jocelyn” was the creation of comedian Jocelyn Jee Esien, and grew out of her collaboration with Three Non Blondes producer and creator Gary Reich. In 2006, after piloting a show for BBC Three to showcase Jocelyn’s solo talents, Gary’s  production company Brown Eyed Boy asked Geoff to Executive Produce the show in its new incarnation, and a co-Production was born.

Using the tried and trusted techniques of previewing and refining sketches through discreet evenings in cabaret clubs, Jocelyn wrote and created a number of much-love regular characters - Jiffy the over-articulate pedantic traffic warden (“This will take a looong time...”), Fiona, the middle class girl who works in an office and can’t bear the thought that anyone might think she’s black, Paulette, the lady who gets her own way in shops, airports etc by crying and screaming so loudly that her antagonist has to give in, the Christian Bus Driver who does everything whilst singing “In the name of Jesus...” , the cotton pickin’ Madam President of the United States and the gloriously polyandrous Nigerian matriarch, Mrs. Omwukwopopo...

The series of six ran on BBC Three (with a compilation being screened on BBC Two in 2007) and won a second series commission and a BAFTA Nomination for Jocelyn.
