About the comedians:

Jane Condon

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 Favorite—New 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."

Vincent McElhone

Vincent McElhone is an Old Saybrook resident, having lived here for the past 25 years. At the age of 33 he took a train from this small town to New York City, and took a chance to perform for the first time at an ‘open mic’ show at the New York Comedy Club…

Twenty three years later he is still doing his thing and along the way has worked such famous venues as The Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas, The Improv in Dallas, Caroline’s on Broadway, Dangerfields in NYC, Mohegan Sun Casino, The Comedy Store in LA, Zany’s in Chicago, Catch a Rising Star in Reno, NV and the Treehouse Comedy Clubs of Connecticut—while sharing the stage with such acts as Brian Regan, Jim Gaffigan, Dom Irrera, and Denis Leary name a few places and people.

He returns to The Kate and looks forward to discussing the subjects that are so close to him such as his family, marriage, being raised Irish Catholic, current events and the local Connecticut shoreline.
