Jen Kirkman is a stand-up comedian and the author of the book, “I Can Barely Take Care of Myself,” which became an instant New York Times Bestseller when it was released in April 2013. Jen is currently a writer and regular round table guest on Chelsea Lately. She also was one of the stars of the hit-spin-off ‘mockumentary’ show After Lately. Jen’s latest stand-up album Hail to the Freaks (released March 2011) hit #13 on the Billboard Charts. Her debut album was 2006’s “Self Help.”
Jen is also well known for her role as the narrator in a few episodes of the cult-hit series “Drunk History” which aired on Comedy Central and HBO. Jen has appeared on: The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, @Midnight, Conan, John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show, The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, and the Cartoon Network’s Home Movies. Entertainment Weekly said in 2012, “If you like Louis CK, check out Jen Kirkman’s hyper self-analytical humor.” Jen has a weekly podcast, “I Seem Fun: The Diary of Jen Kirkman”, which is often in the top 100 in comedy on iTunes. Jen tours as a stand-up but is based in Los Angeles. She is currently working on her second book to come out through Simon & Schuster.
Uncle Majic, a name given by his younger fan base, inspired the name of his upcoming television show, Uncle Majic’s Playhouse. Uncle Majic isn’t just appealing to the younger audiences but the adults as well.
He’s mystified the masses by combining illusions with comedy, warming up crowds for the likes of Chris Rock, Dave Chapelle and Mike Epps. He has also worked his ‘Majic’ at private parties for NY Knicks guard Alan Houston, rapper/actor Treach, Wendy Williams of WBLS & VH1, clothing designer Karl Kani and Russell & Kimora Lee Simmons to name a few. While levitating dollar bills, a can of soda and pulling pigeons, out of thin air, his DJ spins the hottest rap tunes. “I am a Hip-Hop fan so I was really impressed with how well he worked hip-hop into his show” says Alan Houston. His hip-hop sensibility isn’t the only thing that distinguishes him from other magicians. Uncle Majic says “the only thing that separates me from David Blaine is a few thousand dollars. I can do anything. I can make a building disappear; I can make it snow in the summertime.” Next he’ll conjure up a TV Special.
