at the Fox Theatre
Comedy for Charity is proud to co-present Jeanne Robertson on Friday, March 29th at the Fox Theatre.
Humorist Jeanne Robertson specializes in hilarious 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.
Other speakers might be as witty as Jeanne. Some might even be as tall. (Bare-footed with her hair “mashed” down, she’s 6’2″ in her size 11 stocking feet.) But nowhere will you find a speaker so adept at turning personal experiences into humorous presentations that do more than elicit laughter.
This Miss Congeniality winner in the Miss America Pageant uses her down-home Southern drawl to leave her audiences laughing and thinking about her message.
Jeanne‘s longevity as a humorous speaker has not gone unnoticed by her peers. She has been awarded every top honor in her profession. They like her back home too. The North Carolina Press Association named Jeanne its 2001 North Carolinian of the Year. You may have seen this successful speaker interviewed by CBS correspondent Morley Safer on “60 Minutes” … or seen one of her presentations on public television … or read one of her books about humor. But only if you’ve heard Jeanne in person at one of the thousands of speeches she has presented over the past 40 years can you really appreciate why she stands at the top of her profession.
Jeanne Robertson is funny. Oh my, yes. She also knows that her job is far more than “being funny.” Her message is that a sense of humor is an attitude, an approach toward working with people. She believes that this humor attitude can be developed and improved, and she outlines how to do so while she captivates her audiences with funny, original stories.

In the months since Gil was found with raw, bloodied feet and knees, his hind legs paralyzed, he has shown remarkable progress. Proceeds from the show will be contributed to his continued recovery.

What Loved Ones Say About Gil
“It was his spark. He had a will to live and I felt he deserved a chance. I didn’t know what happened to him, but I felt it wasn’t fair — that this young dog would have to be put to sleep for no fault of his own.”
– Rescuer Nancy Young Wright
“That’s what drove all of us — watching him. He just races around the room.”
– Caregiver, Evelyn Karwoski
“He has a brightness and joy in his eyes. He zips around my house and is every bit as playful as a puppy without his issues.”
– Caregiver, Kimberly Kelly
