Brooklyn Native, Dwayne Perkins is a young vet in the Comedy game. With appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Late Late Show, and Premium Blend, Dwayne has earned a spot in today’s class of elite Stand-up Comics. Dwayne is a regular crowd pleaser in New York, Boston and Los Angeles. The recent culmination of Dwayne’s talent and work has resulted in his very own Comedy Central Presents half hour special. The very well received special showcases Dwayne’s unique way of looking at life and unparalleled ability to convey it in a hilarious manner. In many ways still a newbie himself, Dwayne is already inspiring newer comics. With his comedy well grounded and still growing, Dwayne now sets his sights on acting and writing. Look for Dwayne in the HBO movie The Gristle, but don’t look away or you might miss him. Still, Dwayne offers a very memorable cameo as the lost “stereotype” in the bar scene. Catch Dwayne on The Learning Channel teaching a Seattle fireman a thing or two about comedy on the show Faking It. Dwayne’s comedic instincts and acting skill shine through in the soon to be released independent film Target Audience 9.1. In a movie rich with talent, where Breakfast Club meets Night of the Last Comet, Dwayne offers much comic relief as the funny likeable geek. Lastly, don’t Tivo out those commercials as you never know when Dwayne will pop up in an ad pushing products for The Man.
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 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.
