JANE CONDON’S ONE PERSON SHOW

Jane Condon will present her one person show, “Janie Unchained”, Wednesday, March 31, 7 pm at the Unitarian Church. Jane is an island summer resident, and the winner of Audience Favorite-NY on NBC’s LAST COMIC STANDING. This show will take you along on her journey from blue-collar Brockton, Mass. to upscale Greenwich, CT. Along the way, she’ll share her reasons for doing comedy.

The Associated Press calls Jane “an uppercrust Roseanne.” The New York Times says of her stand-up comedy, “Condon had the audience cackling, guffawing and in hysterics as she sliced through marriage, husband, kids, politics and other topics.” $15 suggested donation at the door.
