Description

Originally from Lake Charles, Louisiana, Jen Kober has recently relocated to Los Angeles where she has quickly become a nationally recognized headliner – playing colleges, casinos 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.

Classically trained at the Theatre School of DePaul University in Chicago, Kober is also an accomplished actress. She has studied improv at both Second City and Improv Olympic, and has toured successfully with her improvised one-woman shows.

Jason was born in Wichita KS, raised in Baltimore MD, ran away to New York City and now resides in Los Angeles, CA. He has Midwest values, an East Coast attitude and a West Coast mentality.

He comes from the all American family, him, an older sister and parents that have been married forever. “My parents met when they were 3 and 6 in Sunday school and they’re still together. That’s just plain weird. I was so left out in school. All my friends had somewhere to go on the weekends, (their father’s) not me. I still don’t have a weekend home,” quips Jason. The son of an insurance man and a barmaid turned legal secretary was his foundation for life. Throw in a hard working, never does anything wrong, sister named Sheryl and there you have it. “I thought the older sibling was supposed to break your parents in. You know how hard it is when your sister had perfect attendance for all 4 years of high school? I could barely put a full week together,” argues Jason. In high school he was voted most talkative and most outgoing. The problem was he was always talking while the teachers were talking and the only thing he was going out of was the closet.

After being a fake-a-date for 9 prom dates, Jason came out and has never looked back. “The whole coming out was not very eventful. Mom cried, but I think that was right after I introduced her to my first boyfriend he ended up making me cry too. She’s much better now and the men I date are actually employed. Dad ordered a Corolla (meaning Corona, what an insurance geek!),” says Jason.

Jason has performed everywhere from Vegas to Tahoe, New York and LA. He has opened for Judy Gold, Ant and Sandra Bernhardt. He has also appeared on LOGO’s Wisecracks — OutLaugh Comedy Festival. He is a host and producer of Gays R Us at the Hollywood Improv, and is a founding member of Queer on Their Feet.
