    Jen talks about wanting to be a spy, how she missed her chance to be one working at an exclusive country club in Los Angeles, that time in 1991 when Morrissey ruined Bill Cosby’s appearance on Johnny Carson, and her first hike in quarantine.

    2013 FUN

    2013 FUN

    This is a repeat of one of the first ever episodes in June of 2013- back when the podcast was called “I Seem Fun”. The first ten minutes -are new where I take you through the episode. In the repeat episode I talk about…getting car sick, actresses who pretend to be boring, being the non-fun one in her friend group and reads emails from listeners who confess that they hate what their friends find fun.

    HAVING FUNLESSNESS BONUS EPISODE:

    Happy July everyone! I am sending a little summertime bonus for you. This clip is about 9 minutes of my 90 minute set that I did at my show in Amsterdam in October 2019. I taped it off of my phone and it’s very raw. This is the type of extra, unlisted surprise bonus that I’ll drop to my patrons (in addition to the bonus material that they signed up for) every month. I have about 10 stand-up sets from my tours in the last four years as Patreon bonuses - ranging from a few minutes up to an hour. Hope you enjoy and again - you can become a Patreon subscriber for only $5 a month (there are higher levels if you want…) go to patreon.com/jenkirkman

    QUARANTINAGAINING

    QUARANTINAGAINING

    Jen sits in bed to talk to you about how she’s still seriously quarantining and can’t stand people who have to go bars. She talks about how she misses when people seemed to be caring about the little things - and how everything now is back to an insane concept of normal - full of the same hustle culture. Jen also talks about her parents sneaking off to a casino but being horrified by the behavior of others, and how at least women aren’t told to smile on the street as much anymore.

Dan Burbridge ,

I fired my handyman because he voted for Jill Stein.

Enough said.

Can’t get enough

Jen is hilarious and insightful. She makes my commutes in LA manageable as I laugh alone in my car and look like a crazy person to fellow people driving near me. I love this pod!

J.Loschiavo ,

👍🏻

I puked in your driveway and covered it with napkins.

But seriously, Jen is the cool older sister I wish I had. Listening to the podcast is like having a good conversation without the stress of having to hold up my end of it.
