“FIND THE FUNNY IN YOUR LIFE AND WORK.
THRIVE WITH LESS STRESS THROUGH HUMOR!”
Having entertained over a million people live and on television, Cancer survivor Diana Jordan came to realize that by making people laugh, she could help them deal with life’s stresses, motivate them, and teach them what she has learned over the past 25 years–how great laughter is in nourishing yourself and changing your outlook on life.
Diana has toured the country many times over as an extremely successful stand-up comedian and author. She is also a cancer survivor and speaks about her journey to many cancer organizations and events nationwide.
As a funny motivational speaker in Diana’s keynote speaker address, messages ring loud and true about how you can make the choice to be happy, find the funny in your life, take responsibility for your own health, and bust stress. Just these four things can make a happier, healthier, and more productive you! And she’s funny too!
Diana has been nominated by the American Comedy Awards as a Top Five Female Comedian in the country. She has been seen on Showtime, Showtime Specials, HBO, ComedyCentral, VH1, and more.
Diana has also been featured on Oprah for her talent as a comedian and writer. Her hilarious, best-selling book called, A Wife’s Little Instruction Book, Your Survival Guide To Marriage Without Bloodshed! has sold over 500,000 copies.
Being a funny motivational speaker was a natural transition for Diana. She realized her gift and talent for comedy was much needed around the country.
A world traveler, Diana has lived in Greece, Hawaii, Chicago, Atlanta, Las Vegas, and even ‘starved’ while working as a waitress in New York to get a job on Broadway. She never gives up! For the last two decades, Diana has headlined America’s top comedy clubs and entertained our troops overseas.
For over a year she performed her widely popular one-woman-show, “Female, Fertile, and Frustrated!” which she wrote, produced, directed, and starred in at the world famous Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena, California. “Female, Fertile, and Frustrated!” is still the longest running one person show in the forty year history of The Ice House. No longer FERTILE, Diana makes light of getting older and using humor to cope with being a breast cancer survivor.
Diana studied improv comedy in “off the wall” classes with classmate Robin Williams. She has been under contract to CBS Network and Twentieth Century Fox for her self-written sitcom and is a member of SAG, AFTRA, The National Speakers Association, and The Writers Guild of America.
As a talented comedian and singer, she has opened in concert for major stars at The Kennedy Center, Garden State Arts Center, and Radio City Music Hall. She has also been the Master of Ceremonies for gala events with prestigious speakers such as Former Secretary of State, General Colin Powell and Yolanda King, daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King.
On screen, Diana co-starred in “Loretta’s Surprise,” featured at the Sundance Film Festival, and was handpicked by director Cameron Crowe to be in the Oscar nominated movie “Jerry Maguire” with Tom Cruise. You’ll see her sitting next to Cruise during the now famous “You complete me” and “You had me at hello” scenes! Cruise says, “Diana is funny and smart, she had me at her first joke!”
