The time I turned on The View and my picture was up and Barbara Walters defended my “child-free” life.
Jen Kirkman working out some new material at Beta Test.
How do you think the reliably hilarious Jen Kirkman would do with the challenge of Paul Provenza and Troy Conrad’s Set List on the Nerdist Channel? Jen rose to the occasion at NerdMelt Showroom at Meltdown Comics in L.A., and the results are here, including her long explanation of why her poems ended up left in an ambulance, a hobby that would make Walter White take notice, and more:

Los Angeles. We need to talk. You are the city that downloads my podcast the most - by THOUSANDS. So I’m hoping you want to come see me taping my monologue-ing, making up on the spot-ing, bad singing, podcast “I Seem Fun; The Diary of Jen Kirkman” at Largo on Monday April 7th, 2014 at 8:30pm (Doors 7pm)
TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE HERE. FOR THIS WEEK USE CODE JENK FOR $5 OFF.
Now - if you don’t listen to my podcast, I promise you’ll love the show anyway. If you love a comedian telling funny stories off the top of their head - talking to people that don’t exist, calling her parents on stage, encouraging sing-a-longs, having a SURPRISE SPECIAL GUEST and general in the moment mayhem!
Here’s what the A.V. Club said about my podcast:
"The Diary Of Jen Kirkman Podcast is about as accurate a title as you’ll find: The show is literally Kirkman lying alone in bed, streaming consciousness on everything from 9/11 to dental work and occasionally belting out gravelly renditions of disco songs. But the thing that separates what that sounds like from what actually makes it funny is Kirkman’s inherent knack for cultivating conflict even talking into a microphone in a room by herself. Whether she’s dissecting a negative iTunes review from an angry Christian (part of her response: “Did I belittle people of faith or did I belittle Kirk Cameron? ’Cause, sir, there’s a difference.”) or seriously considering a class action suit against Robin Thicke for being gross, Kirkman is eternally embattled—often with imaginary listeners she imitates disagreeing with everything she says as soon as she says it. But she tempers her cynicism with sweetness and, more often than not, she’s right.”
Here’s where I need y’alls help. If you’re coming - pass this on. If you’re not coming pass this on. I am going to be trying to get as many people to know about this as possible. So, this probably isn’t the last of it.
Love you all!
"F****k the Haterzzzz!"

Talk about a one trick pony….We get it, Jen Kirkman is an angry bee otch who claims that she’s actually happy. Yet, she does nothing but whine and complain and act the victim.As a comedian, she’s not funny (not even for a female comedian). As a writer, she’s derivative and impossible to follow. The only thing she really excels at is being a carcicature of herself…a bitter D lister who fails at everything she wants. The podcast is important, though, as it will go down as the epitome of how the entitled Hollywood wannabe class takes themselves oh so seriously that they can’t even see that they miss the entire point of entertainment…entertaining others. Wow, Jen Kirkman should go back to the temp jobs that were clearly her forte.
