Jeanne Robertson is a professional speaker who specializes in hilarious humor based on her life experiences. Speaking to thousands of people annually, she utilizes her positively funny style to illustrate that a sense of humor is much more than a laughing matter. It is a strategy for success.

Other speakers might be as witty as Jeanne. Some might even be as tall. (Barefooted with her hair “mashed” down, she’s 6’2” in her size 11B stocking feet.) But nowhere will you find a speaker so adept at turning personal experiences into funny material that does more than elicit laughter. This Miss Congeniality winner in the Miss America Pageant, “Yearrrrrrrrrrrs ago,” quoting Jeanne, uses her down-home Southern drawl to leave her audiences laughing…and thinking about her message.

You may have seen this Hall of Fame speaker being interviewed by CBS correspondent Morley Safer on 60 Minutes …or watched one of the eight humor DVDs she has produced in the last 18 years… or heard her daily on Sirius/XM Radio’s Family Comedy Channels …or attended one of the Just Jeanne humor shows in theaters across the country …or seen her YouTube clips that have had more than 43+ million views. But only if you’ve seen Jeanne in person at one of the thousands of speeches or theater shows she has given over the past 53 years can you really appreciate why she stands at the top of her profession.

Jeanne Robertson is funny. Oh my, yes. She also knows that her job is far more than being funny. Her message is that a sense of humor is an attitude, an approach toward working with people. She believes that this humor attitude can be developed and improved, and she outlines how to do so while captivating audiences with funny, original stories.
