Ever wondered what the difference between a humorist and a comedian is? Well, check out family friendly humorist Jeanne Robertson when she comes through your town and wonder no more. Robertson carries on the legacy of famous humorists like Mark Twain and Andy Griffith with hilarious and insightful musings on life. Some of her most famous anecdotes are "Don't Go to Vegas Without A Baptist," "Don't Bungee Jump Naked” and "Don't Send a Man to the Grocery Store" (see above). You can find tickets to select performances--including a newly-announced Dallas show on Feb. 10--by clicking here.

While a lot of Jeanne’s material is pulled from observations on everyday life, the 73-year-old's own life journey has been quite extraordinary. In 1963 at the age of 19, Jeanne was crowned Miss North Carolina and in 1964 she received the Miss Congeniality award in the Miss America Pageant. Jeanne was exceptionally tall from a young age--she reached six foot two inches when she was 13 years old--and played basketball at Auburn University. 

Jeanne then taught physical education for many years and became a motivational speaker. In 1981 she was inducted into the National Speakers Association Speaker Hall of Fame and in 1989 won the association’s Cavett Award, becoming the first woman to do so. Jeanne has authored three books and her anecdotes have been featured on numerous comedy shows on the SiriusXM comedy channels.
