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. Since she’s from a blue-collar town in Massachusetts, she likes to make fun of Greenwich. She loves to tell stories about her adventures (mostly survival tales) with her boys.
Condon was named one of 10 Comedy Best Bets in Back Stage’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. Jane won Audience Favorite (NY) on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.”
In May 2011, Jane was the commencement speaker at Wellesley College (her alma mater). In May 2012, she delivered the commencement address at the University of New Haven.
This spring Jane appeared on the Today Show and taped an upcoming episode of NickMom Night Out.
Akash Bhasin was born and raised in New Jersey. He attended college in Rhode Island after which he moved to China for a year to run his own manufacturing business.
After returning from China he began his career in comedy in the summer of 2008. He started doing stand-up as a hobby but soon fell in love with the stage. Since then he has been performing in new talent shows all over Manhattan and Philadelphia. He is a regular performer at Comic Strip Live and Hosts shows all around town.
His material covers a wide range of topics including growing up as an Indian kid in America and traveling all around the world.
Adam Oliensis has been working in comedy for longer than he cares to admit. Not just as a Stand-Up Comedian but also in acting, writing, directing, and producing for TV, theatre, film, and commercials. The Journal News has dubbed him Rockland County’s King of Comedy.
In his stand-up, Adam explores the lessons in humility he’s learning from his wife and especially from his children, along with the adjustments being forced on him by genuine adulthood. Having lived as a child in East Africa, studied martial arts in India, and languished spiritually in New Jersey, Adam is attuned to the absurdities that arise in the everyday, mining both the ironies and silliness that exist in the most humbling situations (with which he continues to gain vast experience).
Adam has recently opened for such comedy legends and luminaries as Robert Klein, Colin Quinn, Gilbert Gottfried, and Larry Miller. He performs at comedy clubs all over New York City and the surrounding area, including regularly at Gotham Comedy Club and Levity Live, as well as at Comic Strip Live, Broadway Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, The Laugh Lounge, Greenwich Village Comedy Club, and Treehouse Comedy. Also at colleges, corporate & private events, synagogues, theatres, and JCCs throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania.
As a writer, Adam co-authored the movie, The Pompatus of Love, with Jon Cryer (Best Comedy, Worldfest-Houston), which he also co-produced and in which he stars along with Mr. Cryer and Kristen Scott Thomas.
Adam’s plays have been produced by Ensemble Studio Theatre, among other companies in New York, as well as in Los Angeles and regionally, and his work has been published by Dramatists Play Service. He has also penned several TV pilots, which have been produced for Cable TV.
As an actor, Adam has appeared on Broadway, Off Broadway, in Regional Theatre, in the movies, on episodic TV, and in hundreds of TV and radio commercials.
He has been nominated for a Clio Award (the Oscars of commercials) for Best Performance. He’s also been nominated as a producer for both Tony & Drama Desk Awards for Best Revival. (And, no, it’s not an honor just being nominated. Just being nominated sucks.)
