She can show your attendees how to add humor quickly to their communications. AND she'll also toss in a few "rules" for using humor so they don't get themselves in trouble!

Wrapping with Comedian Jan

Don’t have time for a full-blown comedy show? Then have Jan sit in on your sessions and do a quick, funny wrap-up of what you’ve learned. The learning will stick and people will enjoy the no-note-taking break. A couple minutes of a session wrap-up is great for segueing from one session to another or ending your day on a high note! Check out Jan’s video/audio page to hear the comedy wrap-ups she’s done for other groups.

Pinnacle Health

”I simply can't remember when I have laughed so hard for so long. We were delighted the way you drew the audience in by using the events of the weekend and added your unique brand of humor to them. Many, many thanks for a wonderful time! I was even thinking of you later in the evening last night and thought what makes you so good. . .besides the wonderfully humorous way you see things, but that your delivery and timing are impeccable! Keep us laughing. It's a great gift you have!“

Sares-Regis Group Property Mgmt

"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!!"

American Mushroom Institute

"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."
