Jen Kober on The Mandalorian

Jen Kober is originally from Lake Charles, LA, and has energetically 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. Jen was the back-to-back Winner of NPR's Snap Judgement Comedic Performance of the Year Award for her Girl Scout Cookie Caper  story which went viral upon its release, and the next year for her story titled Nana Vs. OJ  which got almost a million views!

Jen appeared on Netflix in 2019 as she joined the cast of two of its original shows. Including RuPaul's  sitcom  AJ & The Queen and Dead to Me.  Jen had audiences rolling in the aisles on The Righteous Gemstones  on HBO, played a no-nonsense detective in The Purge  on USA Network, and was a wacky science teacher in Diary Of A Future President  on Disney+ 

In 2021 Jen 's momentum continued with a recurring role on American Horror Story, a guest star  on Showtime's Black Monday  with Regina Hall and Don Cheadle, and a Season 2 regular on Apple TV's new queer sitcom, The Browns. Jen was also featured in Audible's Pride Special, Owning It. 

2022 started off with a bang as Jen booked a hilarious guest starring role on the CBS sitcom How We Roll  starring Pete Holmes and Katie Lowes, and a quick appearance with Jean Smart on the acclaimed HBO series Hacks.

2023 was fantastic for Kober! She appeared as Sheriff Linda Lawless on the Disney Channel's hit series Bunk'd. You also saw her in a galaxy far far away as she joined the Star Wars universe on the epic series, The Mandalorian  on Disney+.

Now, in 2024, Kober is full steam ahead. Jen filmed a half hour comedy special in Vegas last April, that will be released by 800LB Gorilla Media at the end of June.  Kober is also a featured comedian in the Cirque Du Soleil Show, MAD APPLE,  now playing in Las Vegas. Most recently, she sold out 2 solo shows at the Netflix is a Joke Festival that took over Los Angeles in May AND landed a hilarious guest starring role on Sebastian Maniscalco's HBO Max show, BOOKIE.  Jen's also launching her new tour, ONE HICK WONDER in August, and looks forward to being at a comedy club, casino, or performing arts center near you!
