Comedian Jen Kirkman does a solo podcast – a mostly improvised, stream of consciousness monologue that weaves random small observations into sometimes bigger stories about her past, her present and just unfiltered thoughts about anything from her life to what’s happening in the world.  Just like life – the podcast is sometimes funny, sometimes poignant and always random. Jen is interested in the small things that make life both unbearably annoying and wonderful.  Having Funlessness means that everyone’s fun is different.  Some people want to go to Coachella and yell “Woo” some people think it’s just as fun to stay home on a Friday night to do laundry.  Jen’s relationship to her listeners who often write in for advice is authentic and where Jen hones her skills as the self-help guru you didn’t know that you needed.


“What actually makes it funny is Kirkman’s inherent knack for cultivating conflict even talking into a microphone in a room by herself. Kirkman is eternally embattled but she tempers her cynicism with sweetness and, more often than not, she’s right.” - The AV Club

Her second Netflix Original Comedy Special, “Just Keep Livin’?”(2017) is streaming worldwide now worldwide.  Her first Netflix Original Comedy Special “I’m Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine)” was named one of the Top 10 comedy specials of 2015 by Time Out New York, New York Magazine, and The Atlantic. 

    Jen is also a New York Times Bestselling author – her two comedic essay memoirs, I Can Barely Take Care of Myself and I Know What I’m Doing and Other Lies I Tell Myself; (Dispatches From a Life Under Construction) are hilarious looks at her life without children, and living a not-so-conventional life after 40.

    Jen was a long time writer and round table guest on Chelsea Lately, and is known for being a five-time narrator of Central’s Drunk History as well as the voice of many characters in the Cartoon Network cult-hit, “Home Movies."  You’ve also seen Jen in one of her many appearances on CONAN, @Midnight, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Wendy Williams, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and The View.

    Jen has released two stand-up albums Hail to the Freaks (released March 2011) which hit #13 on the Billboard Charts. Her debut album was 2006’s Self Help.  Jen has a weekly podcast, I Seem Fun: The Diary of Jen Kirkman, which is often in the Top 100 in comedy on iTunes. 

    "Ms. Kirkman knows how to deliver a one-liner, but her inclination is to linger in the telling of a story. She digs into a subject, embroidering it with jokes at various angles. A huge number of her bits culminate in vivid metaphors. Though delivered in an effortless conversational style, her comedy has the meticulous detail that can come only from repetition and experience.” – The New York Times
