Jen Kirkman is back on tour this year – with all new material.  Stories and jokes you haven’t seen on her Netflix specials.  Don’t worry.  It’s not all about Drumpf – why talk about him when Jen can talk about herself and her year of seeing fraudulent spiritual healers, holidays without family, being accused of not being “woke” by young people, and tales of when she was a young obnoxious third party voter, and pretentious hater of pop culture.

Jen Kirkman is a national and internationally touring stand-up comedian. Her 2015 Netflix Original Comedy Special “I’m Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine)” was named one of the Top 10 comedy specials of 2015 by Time Out New York, New York Magazine, and The Atlantic.  Her most recent Netflix Original Comedy Special, “Just Keep Livin’?” is streaming worldwide as of January 3rd, 2017.

This weekend we will celebrate Bastille Day, the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison which was seen as a symbol of the uprising of the modern nation.

There will be several Bastille celebrations in Dallas  and we want to share ways you might want to party and enjoy the day.     Continue reading
