For professional speaker and comedienne 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 22+ years on the full-time speaking circuit, she has spoken at hundreds of conferences, employee retreats and banquets held by such groups as Anthem Blue-Cross, the American Heart Association, the Federal Reserve Banks, and the Mayo Clinic. Jan was featured in the “Wall Street Journal” as one of the top convention comedians whose material is clean and in the Washington Post for her clean comedy writing. Jan was most recently featured in the Huffington Post for her clean comedy!
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 such as “Finding the Funny in Change.” In this keynote she shows people how to use humor to handle change.
Jan has also 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), and she is author of 2 books - “Finding the Funny Fast: How to Create Quick Humor to Connect with Clients, Coworkers and Crowds.” And “Convention Comedian: Stories and Wisdom From Two Decades of Chicken Dinners and Comedy Clubs”.
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)
