Kate Conner: unlikely road to stand-up comic

Kate Conner.jpgKate Conner turned to stand-up comedy later in life.
She was 36 when she first got up on that stage. That was two years ago.

Before that, she was working with her husband at their own small software company in Montreal and raising four children.

But she'd always loved comedy and the kids were fertile territory for humour. So her latest stand-up set brings those two loves together.

She's part of a 3-woman performance called "Parental Dissension Advised: A Mother's Day Show."
Kate Conner will be at the Comedy Nest on Sunday night.

She spoke with Elizabeth Robertson about her late start in comedy and her childhood in a religious cult.
