**To the “corrector” guy below on the comments - YES THOUSANDS PER EPISODE - NOT TOTAL. JESUS.**
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!

“There’s always more comedy in being alienated than in fitting in. It’s the alternative comedy posture. It’s what Rodney Dangerfield created with his “I get no respect” routine. The other end of the spectrum isn’t so funny: “I get so much respect.” No one will laugh at how great things are for somebody.
Woody Allen was the great comic genius of my early career, and there was a tendency to measure everything against that standard, that kind of posture. He was always writing about losers and schlemiels and schlubs, but I was never interested in losers. I was more intrigued by the alternative comedy posture. The characters I enjoyed creating were the dropouts and the rebels. They voluntarily opted out of the mainstream. It wasn’t because they couldn’t join it. It was because it wasn’t worth doing. Or there was some serious hypocrisy going on. Or it wasn’t cool.” - Harold Ramis
