Biography

JEN KOBER
is Bringing Hefty Back!

Originally from Lake Charles, LA - Jen Kober has bounded onto the national stage bringing crowds to their feet with her original blend of stand-up, story telling, and improvised rock-n-roll comedy. Her hard-hitting hour is phenomenally funny as Kober commands the stage and dares you not to laugh.

Classically trained at The Theatre School of DePaul University in Chicago, Jen Kober is also an accomplished actress. Kober’s original one woman show sUbcIty was the winner of The Director’s Choice Award at The Kennedy Center Theatre Festival. She has studied improv at both Second City and Improv Olympic, and Jen has toured successfully with her improvised one woman shows, JUNK IN MY TRUNK and MY BIG FAT COMEDY SHOW. In 2006 Jen was the Runner Up in the MySpace Stand Up/Sit Down Comedy Challenge which aired on both TBS and as part of Comic Relief 2006 on HBO. In 2007 Jen appeared on Showtime’s White Boyz in the Hood Lifetime’s improvised sitcom Love Spring International and Comics Unleashed. She was also the host of Up For Laughs on TBS sponsored by Sierra Mist.

In 2008 Jen appeared in Jamie Kennedy’s new comedy documentary Heckler, was a featured comedian on Oxygen’s 25iest Celebrity Bad Girls Gone Good, and she headlined at over 180 colleges across the country. 2009 already has Jen appearing on NESN’s Comedy All Stars on June 5 and her DELICIOUS TOUR will be playing at colleges and comedy clubs all year. Most recently Kober taped a half hour special for MTV’s LOGO Network that will also air this summer, and Kober played villainess Muriel Ledger in the upcoming feature family film Cool Dog.

Leslie Berman of The SWLA Times writes, "Kober is one of the most talented comics of our time. I have been betting on her to find her niche and go national since the first time I saw her. I thought: ‘She’s got to be our 21st Century Lucille Ball,’ and that’s no exaggeration. If you're twenty years younger than me, think hipper Tracey Ullman."

Jen Kober currently lives in Los Angeles, CA where she continues to develop new material and travel the globe spreading mass amounts of laughter world-wide with both her stand-up and improvised comedy shows. Jen loves Yoo-Hoo and ranch flavored Corn-Nuts and wonders why instant gratification takes so long.
