3 Non-Blondes is a hidden camera comedy show (and the name given to the three comedians who star in it), distributed by the British Broadcasting Corporation on the BBC Three digital network channel. It also airs on BBC America and Comedy Channel in Australia.

Ninia Benjamin, Tameka Empson and Jocelyn Jee Esien play a range of comical characters to the unsuspecting public. Varying from a fictional celebrity named Marcia Brown, to a charity worker who only wants a kiss or a hug instead of a cash donation.

Two series of the comedy have been broadcast, both were released on a DVD boxset on 22 November 2004; distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment. In an interview concerning her own sketch show, Little Miss Jocelyn, Jocelyn hinted that a third series would probably not be filmed, as they became too well known. The public would either identify them or play along with the sketches, much to the stars' embarrassment.

In 2003, they were listed in The Observer as one of the 50 funniest British comedy acts.

In 2007, Trouble TV picked up the series and are showed it Mondays at 9:00pm until the channel got axed.

In 2010, Jocelyn Jee Esien starred in her own spin-off to the show called One Non Blonde: Down Under that began to air on the 21st Of September. In it she takes three of her characters on a tour of New Zealand.[1]
