Humorist Jeanne Robertson says that the most often asked question at this point in her 50+ year career is if she writes her own material. “Oh noooo,” she usually replies in her deeply Southern accent. “It’s easier to just watch people and wait for the fabulously funny stories to happen.”
Jeanne Swanner Robertson (born September 21, 1943) is an American humorist, motivational speaker, former Miss North Carolina and physical education teacher.

On this video, you’ll hear the latest stories about the regular cast of characters you’ve met on Jeanne’s first seven CDs/DVDs. Oh, yes, that includes her husband Jerry, a.k.a. “Left Brain.” You’ll also meet new friends you will enjoy getting to know.
Produced by Elon University faculty, staff and students at the Historic Paramount Theater in Burlington, NC. Special thanks to those who Jeanne knows personally and those she has met in her travels who help her illustrate that if we keep our eyes and ears open, we’ll find “fabulously funny” people and stories!
