TV Junkie Interview: Comedian Jen Kirkman of 'Chelsea Lately'

We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

A bit over a week ago it was announced that comedian Jen Kirkman would be rejoining "Chelsea Lately" as a writer so we jumped at the chance to interview the prolific performer and writer who we will be seeing a lot more of on E! at 11pm on weeknights. We also thoroughly recommend you see her live shows, which will include The Jen Kirkman Talk Show at the UCB Theatre on April 28th and appearances around town, including Comedy Meltdown and other (she talks about them in the video interview above).

You can see more of her tonight as "The Comedy Awards" will be simulcast on the Web at and will be co-hosted by Jen Kirkman and will feature expanded digital exclusive coverage of the inaugural event. "The Comedy Awards" is airing on Sunday, April 10 at 9:00pm on Comedy Central and TV Land.

To keep up to date on Jen, follow her on Twitter at @JenKirkman and check out her website.
