Comedienne promises to be hefty and hilarious

From thin, vulgar comedienne Amy Schumer to self-described hefty Jen Kober, Ferris brings a variety of humor to its campus.

Kober, whose performance is scheduled for Nov. 2, comes to FSU from Los Angeles. She is originally from Lake Chares, La., and attended the Theatre School of DePaul University in Chicago.

She has appeared in many various shows, including NBC’s Up All Night starring Christina Applegate and HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. This year, Kober has appeared on ABC’s Happy Endings.

Kober has also been on the big screen playing a role in MTV’s new movie Worst. Prom. Ever. She can be seen in next year’s American Pie Reunion movie.

She was also the host of TBS’s Up For Laughs sponsored by Sierra Mist. Kober was a featured comedian on Oxygen’s 25th Celebrity Bad Girls Gone Good and has headlined at more than 300 college campuses nationwide.

Kober has also competed in comedy competitions. In 2006, she was the runner-up in the MySpace Stand Up/Sit Down Comedy Challenge.

Her comedy has reached the worldwide web. To see some of her performances, check out She has also appeared in Gay the e-magazine, which is written by “lesbians with a sense of humor.”

Jennifer Hager, sophomore transfer in resort/hotel/restaurant management, is planning on attending the event because she loves comedians and thinks the last few to perform at Ferris have been funny.

“I looked her up for about one minute and she seemed really funny in just that amount of time,” Hager said.

Kober will be performing at 8 p.m. in the Rankin Student Center Dome Room. Admission is free.

“I expect somewhat edgy material suitable for an adult audience,” transfer sophomore music industry management major Patric Germay said.

For a preview of her humor, Kober’s comedy CD called Bringing Hefty Back can be purchased on iTunes. The album includes her songs “Honda Song” and “Skinny Bitch Song.”
