‘An Evening with Jeanne Robertson’
Humorist Jeanne Robertson will grace the stage at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin.
Robertson reached her 6’2” stature at age 13. Perhaps it was an indication of a future speaking career that would soar to great heights, including being crowned Miss North Carolina in 1963. After receiving her degree at Auburn University and teaching physical education in high school and college, she entered into professional speaking full time and the result was nothing short of comedic gold.
Robertson has produced seven humor DVDs and CDs and written three books on humor, which illustrate her comedic philosophy. She can also be heard on SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s Family Comedy and Blue Collar Comedy channels. While Robertson enjoys making people laugh, she views the role of a humorist as more than eliciting laughter. As audiences are holding their sides and wiping tears from their faces, she makes her point clear: “It ain’t over ‘til the tall lady speaks.”
Tickets start at $20.
