Uplifting. Joyful. Jan Shirley Ann you are loved. The audience composed of friends, from church, school, work and strangers gave you a standing ovation! Jan’s stories of being the youngest, directional challenged and growing up in the Fifth Avenue United Methodist Church and many more are universally relatable. Now she resides in Indianapolis and attends Eastern Star. Her humor comes from her humanness and willingness to be and share herself. As the promo says, “You’ll hear about her love for Jesus, family, friends, and the random experiences of her sweet life in a mix of stand-up comedy and story-telling and yes, come ready for some audience participation!”
Jan is clearly bright, authentic, and well spoken. Clear, sharp presentation. She combines these admiral qualities with a very human and relatable personal side. She has a unique ability to laugh at herself in a wonderful way that draws us in. She had lots of references to being the youngest and growing up. Great audience participation. Asking us questions what we thought about this or that. Feeling more like she was sharing stories in her living room. I loved her stories that were told in a way that made me feel that we were all in this together.
I think that good clean humor without bashing others or going to the realm of poitical or focusing on adult humor is some of the hardest to achieve and do well. Great job Jan Shirley Ann.
