Media Blitz

What a great media response to my latest show, and taping, Not For Rehire.
First up, Sacramento Magazine had a profile of me as the top story for their Arts & Culture section:

https://www.sacmag.com/2019/02/04/a-comical-career/

Then Submerge featured me on the cover for the second time.

 The Sacramento Bee got in on the act putting my mug on the cover of their weekend magazine, and on the front page of the paper, above the fold.

And I was again honored to be a guest on Capital Public Radio's "Insight" with Beth Ruyak, who gave this great description of the show:

"He’s a brilliant storyteller with so much heart and wit that the Washington Post called one of his shows “A work of Demented Genius.”

Jensen developed a show of material based on his misadventures as an employee of fast food restaurants, office jobs, a golf course, and many more weird gigs. Jensen’s string of odd jobs left him  underpaid, overworked, punched, insulted, deep fried, and targeted by duffers at the driving range. The highlight reel of “30 jobs before his 30th birthday” weaves a tale which culminates in the story that put Jensen on stage for the first time."

Press Quotes
"4 STARS!"

"Engaging, hilarious and, at the end, so emotional it might bring you to tears."
Aaron Carnes, Sacramento News and Review

"Prediction: You're gonna love Jensen's style of subtle, smart storytelling"

Bio: Keith Lowell Jensen has become known for his subtle, smart approach, and his meandering story telling. He has appeared on The History Channel, Spike TV, and the Starz Network, and has eight hilarious comedy albums to his credit, with his latest, Not For Rehire now playing on Amazon Prime.

In May of 2018 Skyhorse Publishing  released the comedian's first book, Punching Nazis, and other good ideas. His second book, What I Was Arrested For comes will be published by CLASH! Books in 2020. 

Jensen has performed around the world including spending two weeks in Shanghai headlining the First China International Comedy Festival.

More Info:
Keith Lowell Jensen tells stories that are engaging, hilarious, and often poignant. His subject matter is largely autobiographical. In addition to covering his misadventures at school and in the workplace, the comedian has managed, over five comedy albums, to create an oral history of his daughter Max's life from announcing that his wife was pregnant on his first album, To The Moon, to reflecting on his daughter's love of trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie, civil rights activist Rosa Parks, and all the dragons you can imagine (and then some) on 2018's Bad Comedy For Bad People.

Jensen's latest offering Not For Rehire (800 Pound Gorilla Records, 2020) follows his roller-coaster career path, from his time as a range boy at a public golf course where he got paid less than minimum wage to the employer who started him in stand up comedy by shoving him onto stage in front of a large crowd at an animated film festival.
