JEN KOBER - LIVE @ SYLVIA's
Originally from Lake Charles, LA - Jen Kober has bounded onto the national stage bringing crowds to their feet with her original blend of stand-up, story telling, and improvised rock-n-roll comedy. Her hard-hitting hour is phenomenally funny as Kober commands the stage and dares you not to laugh.

Leslie Berman of The SWLA Times writes, "Kober is one of the most talented comics of our time. I have been betting on her to find her niche and go national since the first time I saw her. I thought: âShes got to be our 21st Century Lucille Ball,â and thats no exaggeration. If you're twenty years younger than me, think hipper Tracey Ullman."
Jen Kober currently lives in Los Angeles, CA where she continues to develop new material and travel the globe spreading mass amounts of laughter world-wide with both her stand-up and improvised comedy shows. Jen loves Yoo-Hoo and ranch flavored Corn-Nuts and wonders why instant gratification takes so long.
