Comedian and mom JANE CONDON lives in Greenwich, Connecticut, but she's still a nice person. She has two boys. Otherwise everything's fine. The Associated Press has dubbed her "an uppercrust Roseanne" and The New York Times says, "Condon had the audience cackling, guffawing and in hysterics as she sliced through marriage, husband, kids, politics and other topics."
She loves to tell stories about her adventures (mostly survival tales) with her husband and kids.
Condon was named one of 10 Comedy Best Bets in Back Stage's annual comedy issue. She has appeared on ABC-TV's "The View" and LIFETIME TV's "Girls' Night Out" and FOX-TV's series finale of "24."
She won "Audience FavoriteNew York" on NBC's "Last Comic Standing."
She also won the nationwide Ladies of Laughter Contest and appears in theatres around the country with the Ladies of Laughter: Funny & Fabulous Tour.
Jane was the 2011 commencement speaker at Wellesley College (her alma mater). In 2012, she delivered the commencement address at the University of New Haven.
Most recently, she appeared on NBC's "Today Show" and Nickelodeon's "NickMom Night Out."
With a degree in chemical engineering, Flaherty left the corporate world and launched his comedy and acting career. He hit all the comedy bases with stand-up at clubs all over the country, and improv/sketch performing with ImprovBostons mainstage cast. Flahertys stand-up act has been featured at Catch-a-Rising-Star, Carolines, and the Comedy Studio. His TV and film credits include Law & Order, Chappelles Show, and The Sopranos, and he has done numerous commercials, industrials, and voice-overs.
