Her humor touches on the absurdities of modern life and explores marriage, sex, parenting, and social mores, in other words: any subject she feels like discussing!

Darren is a runner-up at Last Comix Standing at Mohegan Sun. Peaches Rodriguez is a nationally touring comic and regularly performs in Atlantic City and Las Vegas.
