A New Jersey native, Don has performed in London, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Manila, New Orleans and around the tri-state area at the Broadway Comedy Club, Dangerfield’s, The Comedy Cove and more.

Jack McManus, a NYC-based writer and comedian and a native of Bridgewater. He has performed stand-up throughout the tri-state area, and his short comedic plays have been performed across the East Coast.
