The very funny star of The Office recounts stories of her growing up with her Irish bar owning father and the story of her booking the job of a lifetime on the iconic Emmy winning NBC show at the age of 40, while still waiting on the rich and famous at a restaurant in Beverly Hills. Kate has waited on Hollywood notables like Whitney Houston, Bruce Springsteen, director Billy Wilder & Paul Newman to name a few. She is the epitome of a late bloomer.

Kate is featured on their Billboard top 10 album A Swingin Little Christmas. Kate and jane have toured for the past 9 years together and played the Kennedy Center in D.C. & NYC’s Cafe Carlyle. Kate Flannery was great on The Office as Meredith and she’s great OUT OF THE OFFICE. Come and see for yourself. (That’s what she said).
