From looking at her resume, it seems as if there’s not much comedian Jen Kirkman can’t do. Let’s see: she’s thrived in the often-difficult world of stand up comedy, landed a solid writing gig on E!’sChelsea Lately, successfully started her I Seem Fun podcast, and even found a spot on theNew York Time Best Sellers list with her book I Can Barely Take Care Of Myself. Obviously, despite the title, it looks as if she’s doing just fine.
So, Jen Kirkman, who/what/where/when was the…
MStarsNews: Last time you wore something you hated?
Jen Kirkman: A few weeks ago when I was on a show in L.A. I wore my mom’s old Peter Max (Google it young people) skirt. And although it’s awesome, a button popped. I also looked like a fortune teller.
MS: Last person to see you naked?
JK: Sadly, this woman at a salon who gave me a full body spray tan. And if you mean saw me naked in a love-making, sensual way, a male friend whose name will not be mentioned –– that way nobody gets mad.
MS: Last day job you had?
JK: I count being a writer on Chelsea Lately as a day job because I have to sit on my ass at a desk during the day but if by “day job” you mean a soul-sucking thing I do just for money because I don’t have the body to be a stripper … that would have to be working as a temp filing in a windowless room at a law firm in Los Angeles. I won’t tell you the year because it will make me look like a loser.
