Melbourne International Comedy Festival - Friday night festival fever with Kate Langbroek. This week Kate has been chatting to guests Lawrence Mooney, Asher Treleavan, Dave Callan, Luke McGregor & Chelsea Lately’s Jen Kirkman
I posted Jen Kirkman’s 5 minute interview over here if you just want to hear that.
JOAN JETTING AND WHOSE CAR WE TAKIN’
Jen sits in bed to talk to you about how this episode almost didn’t get recorded due to time management, people who “meet” their babies, women singing Nirvana, and then Jen bursts into tears and tries to get through a story - a podcast first. Then things wrap up with some plugs for the I Seem Fun podcast taping this Saturday April 19th in Austin, Texas at the North Door.
Episode 47 of I Seem Fun:The Diary of Jen Kirkman Podcast is out today. Things get emotional.

“ I am fully accepting of the lack of control that I have. In fact its become a friend to me, the lack of control I have. The illusion of control is what causes pain. So, I am so happy on a deep level that for the most part when I feel a lack of control I can name it, I’ve got pills for it, I’ve got therapists for it, I’ve got breathing exercises for it. Like, I’m not above it. It’s going to always happen, we’re human and we all live every day knowing that we’re going to die and it’s really surreal because it is just something that we kind of push to the back of our heads.
