Road Runners present the hilarious Jeanne Robertson at Bass Hall


Jeanne Robertson is like the aunt you can’t wait to talk to at the family reunion, who always has a new story to tell that keeps the whole family in stitches. —Thom O’Neil, The Carlisle Theater, Carlisle, PA

And just who is Jeanne Robertson?

Jeanne Robertson is a professional speaker who specializes in hilarious, family-oriented 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’s 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. Jeanne, uses her down-home Southern drawl to leave her audiences laughing…and thinking about her message.

Jeanne’s success as a humorist has not gone unnoticed by her peers. She has been awarded every top honor in her profession including the top award in professional speaking, The Cavett Award. She is also a member of the Speakers Hall of Fame and recipient of Toastmasters International’s Golden Gavel award. They like her back home too. The NC Press Association named Jeanne its 2001 North Carolinian of the Year.

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

You’ll see why one syndicated TV segment about Jeanne’s work was titled “Grandma Goes Viral.” She certainly has! And people everywhere are laughing and having fun!
