Jan brings to the stage clean, insightful, and original humor appropriate for company events. A product of the 9 to 5 corporate world, Jan uses her 15 years in marketing to poke tasteful fun at the day-to-day procedures, politics and policies that are rife in the office environment.
Her experience in the business environment helps her relate well to employees at all levels of the company. Jan also hits a nerve among audiences with her bits on growing up in a large family, relationships, and kids. Her account of her family's cross-country vacation will bring back memories for everyone in the audience when she reminisces about driving 8,000 miles with six people in a Buick.
Jan's well-rounded act has made her the Washington, DC winner for HBO's Stand-up, Stand-off Comedy Contest. She has performed for corporations such as Western Union and Kaiser-Permanent, and she's also a regular performer at major venues such as Catch A Rising Star in Las Vegas & Reno, and the Comedy & Magic Club in Los Angeles.
Originally from Washington, D.C., and a member of the last wave of baby boomers, Jan is perfect for all events; her act cuts across all age groups, genders, and locales. In addition to her comedy show, Jan is a professional writer selling over 100 topical jokes a month to radio and television including the Tonight Show monologue. And she has a nationwide weekly radio show "Cubicle Comedy From The Work Lady," in which she dispenses humorous work advice.
Testimonials and Reviews
"What a wonderful performance Jan gave! She clearly did some research about our group. Jan had such a great mix of material - not only original but that everyone in the room could relate to. Comments we heard from guests include: 'Jan was the best comedian yet' (this was the 3rd year for this event) - nothing but favorable comments. In my work I know I can't please all 600 people in the room. However this year I feel like we did!" - Barb Iovan, Angela Hospice
"Jan was great. She sat with our group during lunch and picked up on a lot of information about our group that she was able to turn into jokes when she performed. She was absolutely hilarious and did not make anyone feel uncomfortable. We recommend her highly!" - Jeanne Greene, Lane Powell, PC
"Jan was a pleasure to work with. Not only is she a great person, but a very talented comic. The feedback we received from the women who attended was all positive. I especially liked the work jokes because the newspaper business is a comic strip waiting to happen." - Terry Oyhamburu, Great Falls Tribune
"Jan was terrific, we have received TONS of positive feedback. It was great that she did her homework and was able to incorporate into her act! She was a delight - enjoyed by all. " - Michelle Waddington, Sanofi-Aventis
"What a fun close to our Annual Iowa Tourism Conference. We appreciate your light-hearted jokes and humorous message. Thanks for making time to prepare for our group and deliver just the right mix of fun. We would recommend you for other groups. Your show is a great stress reliever!" - Lonie Mezera, Iowa Tourism Office
