What happens to a native of blue-collar Brockton, MA who graduates college (Wellesley), marries, moves to Japan, writes a thoughtful, well-received book about Japanese women, then returns home with her brood to take up residency in Greenwich, CT?
On Mon. Oct. 5, when the Westport Woman’s Club welcomes comedian Jane Condon as the featured monthly luncheon entertainment, the audience will learn the hilarious answers.
Jane Condon “…had the audience cackling, guffawing and in hysterics as she sliced through marriage, husbands, kids, politics and other topics,” says the New York Times.
"Jane Condon is that rarity among her fellows, a comic whose material never needs laundering;" notes the Wall Street Journal.
She loves to tell stories about her adventures (mostly survival tales) with her boys. Condon was named one of “10 Comedy Best Bets” in Backstage's annual comedy issue (2001). 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 the Ladies of Laughter Contest in 2004 and the Audience Favorite (NY) on NBC's Last Comic Standing.
In May 2011, Jane was the commencement speaker at Wellesley College (her alma mater).
