National touring comedian Jen Kober drew laughter from a crowd of Hilbert students and faculty Tuesday night at the Swan Auditorium. Kober, who hails from Lake Charles, Louisiana, has made several appearances on TV and the silver screen. These include stints on ABC’s The Middle, BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood, and Grudge Match starring Robert De Niro. Her stop at Hilbert was part of a four month-long college campus tour across the United States.
Kober prides her comedy style on that which blends elements of stand-up, storytelling, and improvised rock-n-roll comedy. For those in the audience on Tuesday, everyone seemed to leave with smiles on their faces.
Kober touched on many subjects throughout her one hour show. From her seemingly near-death experience skydiving, to attempting to play matchmaker with audience members, to even touching on the the new presidential administration.
The Jen Kober comedy night was just one of many events planned for the Hilbert community by the Student Activities department. Future events that are planned by Student Activities include a screening of the movie The Duff on January 31st, a game night playing “Life” in inside St. Joe’s on February 3rd, and a “Commuter Taco Tuesday” on February 7th.
