Humor Columnist / Author Jerry Zezima confesses: "If you have ever wondered why journalism is in trouble, it would be because of me. I am the author of 4 books, Nini and Poppie’s Excellent Adventures, Leave It to Boomer, The Empty Nest Chronicles and Grandfather Knows Best, all of which are crimes against literature and come in handy for propping up wobbly table legs. As a chilling example of just how low journalistic standards have sunk, I have won many awards, including 7 for humorous writing from the National Society of Newspaper Columnists." Jerry writes his humor column for Hearst Connecticut Media Group, which includes his hometown paper, the Stamford Advocate. His column is distributed to newspapers nationwide and abroad by Tribune News Service of Chicago. He is working on his sitcom [we're hoping for a spoiler!] and fifth book.

Recovering Standup Comedian Jen Coken is a self-described "public Nutella nosher [she will translate]", 20-year life coach and the author of When I Die, Take My Panties: Turning Your Darkest Moments Into Your Greatest Gifts, which she wrote after losing her mother to ovarian cancer. Jen helps corporate CEOs and entrepreneurs overcome self-made limitations and reach new levels in business and life. Jen says: “To me, work and play are one. When you’re juggling a tangle of responsibilities or wading your way through a full-stop crisis, life can seem so serious. Embracing the ridiculousness of life is what keeps me afloat. Humor and playfulness make me feel less alone and help me get it all done.” Laugh with Jen.  www.jencoken.com
