“Jen Kirkman is back and she’s not afraid to tell it like it is — again.” -Entertainment Weekly

“There is a lot of reasons that comedy will be simultaneously a bigger deal and something to watch even more closely in 2017. Jen Kirkman will undoubtedly be one of those reasons.” -The Comedy Bureau

Jen Kirkman is back on tour this year - with all new material. Stories and jokes you haven’t seen on her Netflix specials. Don’t worry. It’s not all about Drumpf - why talk about him when Jen can talk about herself and her year of seeing fraudulent spiritual healers, holidays without family, being accused of not being “woke” by young people, and tales of when she was a young obnoxious third party voter, and pretentious hater of pop culture.

Jen Kirkman is a national and internationally touring stand-up comedian. Her 2015 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. Her most recent Netflix Original Comedy Special, “Just Keep Livin’?” is streaming worldwide as of January 3rd, 2017.

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 also well known for being a five-time narrator of Central’s Drunk History. She’s a regular guest on CONAN and Comedy Central's @Midnight. Jen has appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The View, The Wendy Williams Show, Harry, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and voiced many characters Cartoon Network cult-hit “Home Movies.” She’ll be appearing in the upcoming feature film “Home Again”.

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.

Praise for Just Keep Livin'?

“A polished hour that finds Kirkman waxing rhapsodic on everything from meditation to abortion… Just Keep Livin’? touches on uncomfortable topics, and tells us exactly how Kirkman feels about them without coming off as preachy. Ironically, it’s her knack for self-deprecation that makes it feel so satisfying when she tackles the most insidious elements of society. That, along with her strong narration, make Kirkman’s comedy, as well as her politics, quite easy to engage with.” -AV Club

“Suffice it to say, Jen Kirkman is everywhere. And the world is better for it.” -Salute Magazine

“Jen certainly has the receipts to back up her stand-up comedy prowess, not just with her appearances on Comedy Central and Funny or Die, but thanks to her comedy writing chops on the ‘Chelsea Lately Show’, and her New York Times Bestselling book ‘I Can Barely Take Care Of Myself’... Seriously, is there nothing that this badass can’t conquer?” -Girl Talk HQ

“There is a lot of reasons that comedy will be simultaneously a bigger deal and something to watch even more closely in 2017. Jen Kirkman will undoubtedly be one of those reasons.” -The Comedy Bureau

“A certain subset of the population will nod understandingly when Jen Kirkman talks about eating a block of cheese like a sandwich, her experience as an accidental cougar, or getting uninvited to a couples' dinner. Those are her people.” -Elle

“Jen Kirkman is back and she’s not afraid to tell it like it is — again.” -Entertainment Weekly

“The fresh and funny show finds laughs at every turn as the comedian alternates between long-form storytelling, one-liners and even good old-fashioned, fun Nazi jokes.” -Eponymous Reviews

“In her new Netflix special, Just Keep Livin’?, veteran standup comic Jen Kirkman jokes about meditation, periods, and the deep philosophy of Matthew McConaughey. That last one’s not even a joke: As Kirkman asserts, McConaughey’s motto — which she borrowed for the title of her special — is truly inspiring… She also wears a fabulous outfit of red pants, pink blouse, gold ankle boots, and a gold necklace that spells out, “Over Forty.” -Flavorwire

“Anyone who follows Jen Kirkman knows that the comic has a lot to say. Whether the topic is politics, feminism or the occasional existential crisis, Kirkman is never short on words, words that are measured, convincing, and absolutely hilarious. The comic has amassed a sizable following on Twitter sharing those thoughts, and demonstrated with her last special, I’m Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine), that she can deliver a bitingly clever, fiery rant with the best of them. She’s really come into her own, and looks to be continuing that trend with her newest outing.” -Interrobang

“If you’re one of those guys who says creepy shit to women, Jen Kirkman has some advice for you.” -The Laugh Button

“I’d see her on those shows and come away laughing at nearly everything she’d say that I needed to see more of her… When her first special came out on Netflix, I’m Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine) came out, it was an awesome set that placed her on our ranking of the 50 best stand-up comedy on Netflix. And now she has a second with the addition of Just Keep Livin’? and I think it’s her best one yet, until the next one.” -Netflix Life

“...her second special Just Keep Livin’?—available today on Netflix—covers new territory: tattoos and tampons, meditation and Matthew McConaughey, being in a relationship and traveling alone. If that sounds like a disparate array of topics, it is, but Kirkman’s talent lies in weaving all of those threads together in a way that never feels forced or abrupt. Like her first hourlong, Just Keep Livin’? breezes right past the 60-minute mark—proof of how easily she fills the time.” -Paste
