Jen sits down while visiting family to watch an entire Hallmark Christmas movie and comment and narrate to you all. In this exciting episode Jen is alarmed at the thought of putting tinsel on a tree before ornaments and how there are zero details about how this busy organizing business woman invented an app, and why is no one freaking out over the fact that this toy maker literally designed a hologram technology that doesn’t yet exist.

This is the second hour of the long-ass stand-up show that was recorded at the Bellhouse in Brooklyn September 2014. Happy Holidays!

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!

OH MY GOD it’s the 200th episode of I Seem Fun and Jen forgot and does nothing specifically special about it - except puts together a totally random episode that is half live show and half at home chat. She talks about her silent retreat, loving a Sugar Ray song in a rental car, how dare Hillary write a book, and the most boring story ever told about changing a flight.
