This is a stand-up comedy show and gathering of parents, their babies and friends to laugh and get to know each other.
Hand picked top comedians will perform a hilarious line-up geared toward making parents laugh and babies giggle.
Zoe and Anne-Marie are both mothers and comedians who love BABIES & COMEDY so they decided to create a show so they could bring their babies to work.
They say it takes a village to raise a child and they aren't kidding. Raising a baby can be lonely & sometimes feels really isolating. We both felt like we were no longer welcome at the cool table. However we know we're cool so we created this show! It's a place where new & cool parents can come together, laugh and enjoy life while giving back! And to let people know that life only gets better with babies!
Anne-Marie Symons is an Irish Immigrant, straight off the boat... she didn't have money for the plane. She performs stand-up all over the world and shares her experiences as a fish out of water immigrant and life as a wife and new mom. "Some people think my comedy is a little risqué but I just say what everyone else is thinking. In America people think I'm wild but in my family I'm the conservative one. I love being Irish and being a mom because people have to be okay with me being drunk... it's my culture."
Zoe Rogers performs stand-up comedy all over the world. She is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet... at least this side of the LA river. And it is always a blast to watch her perform and share her hilarious experiences as a mom & wife. "Being a mom is awesome and exhausting. It’s like dealing with the cutest and craziest hecklers you’ve ever met. There’s no sleep or predictability, but there is the universal experience of being a parent. Whether you are a parent, step parent, or have just stood in line behind children, you know that they offer a unique, honest, and LOUD perspective on life."

If you'd like to arrange a big elaborate wedding proposal, with a marching band, synchronized swimmers, and trapeze artists... well don't you think it's a few months too late for that. I mean SHEESH! You already have the baby. Good job buddy. You should probably just go down to the courthouse and get a quick license. Don't forget the flowers though. Ahh who am I kidding you're totally gonna forget the flowers.
