If you listened to I Seem Fun episode Small World, Isn’t It? there is a part where Jen Kirkman talks about going to Comic-Con years ago with Morgan Murphy, Joe Wagner, and Zach Galifianakis so Zach could do a panel on Tru Calling. She mentions her friend Joe heckling Zach from the audience and this is a clip from that moment.
Just two legends having a chat on stage together.
"Everyone is like, looking hot in front of monuments. That’s kind of what photography has come to."

"You missed it. I stretched out on a piano and made millennials watch me sing along to the Doobie Brothers tonight." - Jen Kirkman

If you are confused as to why I am for example in Dublin without stopping to London or why I’m in this part of Sweden instead of that or why this part of Ohio and not that…the answer is this.
Comedy tours don’t quite work like band tours. It’s hard to wrangle everything in the same area. And I am still working a full time writing job and sometimes when I’m offered a festival I have to RUSH TO EUROPE for a few days and get right back to my writing job. I don’t repeat my hour of material in the same city within a year. You can see on my tour dates (link above) where I have already been this year.)
I will do stand-up until my knees give out and so no need (although I love the love) to say, “COME TO XYZ CITY!” I promise you if it’s a major enough city with a comedy club or a rock club or a small theatre - I am coming.
I will be on tour full time for the rest of 2014 and 2015 so fear not. I’ll be everywhere. This list is a list of where I am booked. The places not listed do not imply that I am not aware of a city, have never been, will never go and need coaxing. Trust me. I love to travel. Love you all.
For the people that live in these cities - please buy tickets in advance if you can. Again most of these cities are on sale RIGHT NOW at jenkirkman.com/tour-dates
Thanks for making it possible for me to do this. xoxo

“ The relationships I’ve had where the person likes The Smiths have always gone better than ones that don’t.
I sent in a Would You Rather? game to Jen Kirkman’s podcast making her choose between two hypothetical guys and this is a quote from her deliberation.
I want to add this quote that she said too because I like it a lot:
"I feel like the music is very important ‘cause I think it informs who people are a lot more than people think. As I say, the dumb stuff sometimes is a big deal."
Hearing her analyze her choice was actually fun although she seemed agonized by it.
