With a relaxed and approachable comedy style, Mooney has been described as a "sarcastic, smart-ass extraordinaire with a myriad of truly original topics" (Indianapolis Star). She began her stand-up career in Austin, Texas, and now lives in Los Angeles. A veteran of the HBO Comedy Arts Festival and Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, she has appeared on Comedy Central's Premium Blend and in her own Comedy Central Presents episode.

Originally from Lake Charles, La., Kober was classically trained at The Theatre School of DePaul University in Chicago. Her one-woman show "sUbcIty" won the director's choice award at The Kennedy Center Theatre Festival. She studied improv at Second City and Improv Olympic, and was runner-up in the MySpace Stand Up/Sit Down Comedy Challenge, which aired on TBS and as part of Comic Relief 2006 on HBO. Her credits include appearances on Showtime, Lifetime, TBS and Oxygen, and she appeared in Jamie Kennedy's feature documentary, "Heckler" (2007).

Kober, who lives in Los Angeles, continues to develop new material and travel with her stand-up and improvised comedy shows.
