BLOOMINGTON- Illinois Wesleyan Office of Student Activities will welcome comedian Jen Kober on Saturday, March 24 at 8 p.m. to the Hansen Student Center (300 Beecher St., Bloomington). Doors open at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Kober's act combines an original blend of stand-up, story telling and improvised rock-n-roll comedy. Classically trained at The Theatre School at DePaul University, Kober has also studied improv at Second City and Improv Olympic. Her original one-woman show, sUbcIty, was the winner of The Director's Choice Award at The Kennedy Center Theatre Festival.

This year Kober has appeared on the television series Happy Endings on ABC as well as Season 8 of the hit HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm. She is also featured in the next film of the American Pie series, American Reunion, due out next year, and recently taped a co-starring role in an episode of NBC's sitcom Up All Night starring Christina Applegate, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph.
