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

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

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.
