Originally from Lake Charles, Louisiana, Kober has bounded onto the national stage - playing colleges, theatres and comedy clubs all over the country and bringing crowds to their feet with her original blend of stand-up, story telling, and improvised rock-n-roll comedy. 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: Shes got to be our 21st Century Lucille Ball, and thats no exaggeration. If you’re twenty years younger than me, think hipper Tracey Ullman."

Jen loves Yoo-Hoo and ranch flavored Corn-Nuts and wonders why instant gratification takes so long.
