Lauren has been training her entire young life to host a Murphy Brown Podcast, with the sitcom serving as a major inspiration for her to be the writer/actor she is today. Family lore is that Lauren was found in a hollowed-out television set in Victoria Station, cementing her love of TV at a very early age. You may think you know Lauren as Gilda Radner from the cutting room floor of the film Chapter 27, yelling at Hailee Steinfeld in Ten Thousands Saints, or being murdered in The Following. Lauren is also a published essayist (Partially on George Burns & Gracie Allen) and playwright, with a minor in Jewish good-byes.

Jesi was probably far too young to be watching Murphy Brown when it aired, but that didn't stop her. By the time she was in grade school, she had very strong opinions about women in the workplace and cannot thank her mother enough for ignoring her bedtime during those formative years. Jesi's performance career in New York City has spanned from theatre to feature films to national commercials. She's a proud member of the company cast of Our Bar, a monthly mash-up of original hilarity and talent (featured in American Theatre Magazine!) and the upcoming online sitcom, Just Super!
If you haven't seen her for a while, she's either taking pics of her cats or at New York Comic-Con.
