About the show
Christine Hurley loves what she does…making people laugh! Married to Jimmy Hurley and having five kids, Christine is never at a loss for comedic material.

Like any great comedian, Christine has an innate ability to see humor in “everyday” situations. For years, she entertained family, friends and neighbors in their kitchens, at barbeques and the grocery store aisles. The only difference now is she uses a microphone and a stage.

Christine’s maiden voyage into the world of stand up comedy was an open audition in New York City. The television network Nick at Nite was looking for “AMERICA’S FUNNIEST MOM.” She figured if it didn’t go well, no one in New York would have known who she was anyway…

Turns out it went well! Out of thousands of entries, Christine was selected to be a finalist on the nationally televised show. The producers of the show included Carol Leifer (Seinfeld show producer), Jeff Singer (talent scout, Montreal Comedy Festival), Jeffrey Ross (Comedy Central roast master) and actress Sandra Bernhardt.

Her stories and views on motherhood and marriage are exactly what everyone is living through…people get it and love it!

 “Local Favorite” Pete Costello

Pete Costello is one of Boston’s classic comedic performers. During the last ten years, Pete’s experience consists of college campuses, comedy and night clubs, fundraiser events, organization performances, and numerous acts throughout the country.

Pete’s material appeals to both young and old and he associates humor with everyday occurrences.

Whether it happens in his own life experience or that of others, Pete has a creative mind and the talent to create humor in any situation.
