Jan McInnis

Jan McInnis

Jan McInnis 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. 

Cubicle Comedy

Clean, customized comedy tailored to the theme of your event! Jan combines her hilarious comedy program on work, family and day-to-day "stuff" with jokes written specifically for your group. She's performed for hundreds of companies and associations in every industry from medical to finance and educational.

Finding the Funny in Change

Jan combines her hilarious comedy act with practical tips on how to deal with change. Whether they're making major career changes, or minor mid-life changes, Jan can step them through it with humor. Her experience leaving the cushy 9-to-5 job, heading into the bumpy road of comedy, lends itself to humor along with some great lessons on handling change. Your group will walk away not only laughing, but with some skills they can apply immediately. Comedy is a painless way to learn . . . and Jan can help you do it!

Finding the Funny in Communications

Jan combines her hilarious comedy act with practical tips on putting humor into your communications. She's sold material to hundreds of radio stations, to the Tonight Show monologue AND even to guests on the Jerry Springer Show - yeah, some of it IS staged! 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!

Event Emcee

Whether your event is a half-day or the whole week, keep your attendees INTERESTED by having Jan emcee. Jan mastered her emcee techniques hosting hundreds of shows, so she knows how to keep things on track, handle the problems, and make people enjoy being there. Give yourself a break and leave it to Jan to keep the show rolling smoothly.

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.
