Jen Kirkman: When you’ve gotta go, you’ve gotta go

Posted by Dan July 22nd, 2009 at 11:27am In General

As of late, I’ve been spending my unemployment Googling videos of my favorite stand-up comedians. What can I say — at least it keeps me off the streets?

One of my new favorites is Jen Kirkman, a baby-faced comedian from LA with an adorable lisp and a huge dark side.  You may remember her from appearances on Chelsea Lately or perhaps Drunk History Vol. 3, where she was the narrator behind the Oney Judge escaped slave story.

Jen has great conversational style and, like Janeane Garofalo, tends to drop lots of small jokes instead of huge laugh lines. She tends to cover a lot of female-centric topics (baby showers, etc.) but she has a dark enough take on it that everyone can enjoy it (as long as they have a dark side too).

Here’s a clip of her talking about gay marriage and BMs.

Here’s another good clip of her discussing the sensitive and — to me — ever mysterious subject of female masturbation.  It’s actually very funny and not really blue at all.
