Maureen Langan is an award-winning journalist turned stand-up comic and radio talk show host. Her quick wit and honest rants on life’s absurdities make her a hit at clubs, theaters, and festivals across the U.S, Canada, Europe and So. Africa.
Whether lambasting celebrities, satirizing news, or joking about her father, a New York City sanitation worker, and her Irish immigrant mother, it’s her genuine connection with audiences that make her standout.
Maureen is a MAC Award-winner who has performed on Broadway with Rosie O’Donnell and has opened for Steven Wright, Dennis Miller, Joy Behar and Gladys Knight. She’s been featured on Gotham Live, HBO, Red Eye, Comics Unleashed, the Paramount Pictures film “Marci X,” and in national commercials.
Maureen’s solo show Daughter of a Garbageman has been called “brilliant” and a “one-woman tour de force.” Daughter of a Garbageman was chosen Top Three Solo Shows Bay Area. The show has been performed to rave reviews in New York, Nantucket, San Francisco, Berkeley and Edinburgh, Scotland.
Bobby Tessel is one of only a few comics to appear on both, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and The Late Show with David Letterman. What does that mean? Not much really, but he's done it, have you?
Tessel's first time on stage was to a packed house at the Funnybone Comedy Club in Cincinnati, and he destroyed the room. Since that night, he hasn't looked back. “I love stand-up,” Tessel says. “I love putting words in a sequence that no one in the entire world has ever thought of in order to get a desired response; laughter. I think that's cool.”
