I have a comedy show, plus two programs that include my comedy show along with some great tips. And I'm a great emcee. I'm based in Los Angeles, but I travel all over the country. Have been a full time corporate/association comedian for 14+ years.

If you want a clean, hilarious comedy show, with customized jokes written just for your group, then this is the way to go! Jan will keep everyone laughing about work (she spent 15 years in a regular marketing job), kids (none of her own, but lots of nieces & nephews), and day-to-day “stuff.” AND she'll collect info on your group, to kick off the show with jokes all about them! Jan was featured in the "Wall Street Journal," in an article about clean comedy, as one of the top convention comedians. She's performed for hundreds of corporations and associations including Abbott Pharmaceuticals, Blue Cross, and The Federal Reserve.
• Customized. Jan gets the inside scoop on your group and gives it back from the stage.
Interviews, tours, newsletters . . .bring it on! • Appropriate. Jan has been both the employee and the boss, so she relates well to everyone in the company.
• Clean. You can sit next to your boss without being embarrassed.
• Entertaining. Jan hits subjects that both men & women can relate to.
• Professional. Jan shows up early, does her homework, and leaves 'em laughing.
• Tested. Jan is a veteran comedienne who has entertained successfully for hundreds of professional groups, including large corporations, small businesses, and trade & professional associations.

"We especially like how you tailored the show to our group and that none of the jokes were offensive. Everyone thought that you were hilarious."
-Richard J. McCarthy, MD, Kaiser-Permanente

"You can tell that a comedian has been successful when members of the audience keep repeating the jokes that were told for days after the performance."
-Laura Phelps, American Mushroom Institute

"We were in stitches! Not only was Jan hilarious, but she took the time to research our company and we felt like she really knew who we were and what would make us laugh. When the comment cards came back, she was a 10 out of a 10. Bravo Jan!!"
-Stacy Waddell, Sares-Regis Group Property Mgmt

Make your event memorable by having comedian Jan emcee! She can keep the show rolling, handle any problems, and assure that everyone stays engaged. Give yourself a break and leave it to Jan to keep the show rolling smoothly. Jan customizes all of her shows with jokes about the group. She will interview you ahead of time, and (schedule permitting) she'll sit in on meetings and take tours! She is the perfect Emcee.

"Our annual awards program with Jan as the Master of Ceremonies couldn't have come together more perfectly. You would have thought Jan was a long time member of our organization, knew the language and how best to connect with our audience. Having everyone in stitches was icing on the cake." J. B., Women in Insurance & Financial Services
