Comedian Jen Kober lands role in NBC comedy

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Comedian Jen Kober has been making Lake Charles laugh with her quick whit and humor for years, but Wednesday night she's set to entertain a national audience.

"You're not the only one on NBC anymore Lee Peck... Jen Kober is now on NBC," joked Kober.

Kober recently landed a role on NBC's new comedy "Up All Night" starring Christina Appelgate, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph. Kober said she read for the part and within a couple of weeks she was in Los Angeles for the two day shoot. While she can't reveal too many details about her part, Kober talked about the experience of being on set with Rudolph.

"On the show Maya Rudolph plays an 'Oprah' type character. Her name is Ava. She's got her own talk show and I am a guest on the talk show. So it's a pretty outlandish show so you can imagine what it might be," said Kober. Rudolph was soooo hilarious. I wish you could see all the outakes and everything because the things we were doing in between shots were so funny. It was hard to keep a straight face when Maya Rudolph is reacting to what you are doing. We had a great time."

"At first when we were getting ready next to each other I was staring at her... and I guess she noticed," laughed Kober. "So she was like 'hi I'm Maya!' I was like I know... Oh, I'm Jennifer. So it was kind of surreal to think I'm standing right next to her like I was literally in my pajamas watching her the night before on TV - now I'm right in front of her." 

In between her national tour dates, Kober has a number of projects in the works. She has an upcoming role on NBC's "In the Middle" and in the "American Pie" reunion movie where she has part with the character "Stifler."

Meanwhile the show "Up All Night" airs Wednesday night at 7 p.m. You can also catch Jen's comedy show this Friday night at Luna Live at 8 p.m. (It's all new material)

    Tonight, it should be another nice, yet warm evening. Any clouds we see today will clear away around sunset, and the rain chances go back to zero tonight. The temperatures will be fairly warm. They should not cool out of the 70s in most places. Especially near the coastline. North of I-10 has a chance to too the upper 60s, but it will still be warm. This will start off with more hot and humid conditions. There will likely be plenty of clouds every now and then.
