Jen found a stand-up show she did at the Brooklyn Bellhouse in 2014 that was recorded off of the audio board - this was a two hour show of working out new material and just chatting with the audience. Something to note - Joan Rivers was on life support and Jen had heard that night that she was going to be let go the next morning, she had just turned 40 the week before in Sweden, and had just finished a long-running job at Chelsea Lately to bust out into a life of touring. There was a LOT of energy that night - and feeling free as a bird to say whatever and be grateful to be alive, and about to head into a new adventure. That means - don’t overanalyze this ONE MOMENT IN TIME from September 2014. It was Jen and that person is now no longer Jen. Happy Holidays!
