  "For comedienne and professional speaker Jan McInnis, life is full of “finding the funny.”  She – and the audiences who continually rate her programs “hilarious” – wouldn’t have it any other way.

            Inspired by fifteen years as a marketing director in the 9 to 5 world, Jan has cornered the association and corporate convention market.  And over the past 14+ years on the full-time speaking circuit, she has spoken at hundreds of conferences, training sessions, employee retreats and banquets held by such groups as Anthem Blue-Cross, Merrill Lynch, John Deere, the Federal Reserve, Women in Insurance & Financial Services and the Mayo Clinic.  Jan was featured in the “Wall Street Journal” as one of the top convention comedians whose material is CLEAN (as in not offensive) and in the Washington Post for her clean comedy writing.

            Learning doesn’t have to be boring!  Jan has a knack for humorous analysis, which enables her to keep her audiences laughing, not just with a comedy show, but also with some of her keynotes.  In her “Finding the Funny in Change” speech, she gives practical tips on handling life’s curveballs.  Her creative guidelines to mastering change are taken from her own experiences leaving the cushy “regular” job and heading out into the bumpy road of comedy.    

And, having sold comedy material to just about everyone. . . from the Tonight Show monologue, to greeting cards, hundreds of radio stations and even guests on the “Jerry Springer Show” (yes, some of it is staged),. . . Jan now can tell anyone how to do it themselves.  Jan’s program “Finding the Funny in Communications” offers quick pointers on pulling out the humor FAST, so that your message heard and remembered.       

This keynote is based on her new book “Finding the Funny Fast: How to Create Quick Humor to Connect with Clients, Coworkers and Crowds.”


Born in D.C., Jan was in charge of the “Joke of the Day” for her junior high school lunch table.  Not surprisingly, she majored in communications at Virginia Tech, where she was a disk jockey for the local radio station. 

Jan’s humor is clean and appropriate for all groups.

“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!!!" S.W., Sares-Regis Group (prop. mgmt)

If I watched you do it all over again today, I'd laugh just as hard. Thank you for taking the time to tailor your material just for our audience, who had tears in their eyes and were doubled over."
