Featured Speaker: Diana Jordan
A psychology major from the University of Oklahoma, the former Miss Congeniality has been a featured writer in many magazines including Redbook and Reader's Digest. Born and raised in a small town in Oklahoma, Diana has spent the last 25 years working in Hollywood, and currently resides in Malibu, California with her doggie, Miss Gracie.
Keynote speaker and veteran stand-up comedienne, Diana Jordan has been entertaining audiences for over twenty years. When Diana appeared on Oprah for the first time, Oprah Winfrey selected her as "One of the funniest people on the planet," right alongside Jerry Seinfeld, Robin Williams and Bill Cosby. She is a woman who looks at life through her humor lens. In addition to being a veteran stand-up comedienne, Diana is also an accomplished singer and actress.
It was the application of humor to her own life circumstances that moved her want to share the gift of humor through motivational speaking. While caring for her mother as she battled with emphysema and heart disease during the last four years of her life, Diana's determination to make her mom laugh, dramatically improved her mother's life just as Dr. Patch Adams did with his patients. Diana and her mother both found that you can learn to have a sense of humor.
Facts, laughter, music, and a genuine feeling for caring for others shine through Diana's sensational personality and energy. Everyone leaves feeling energized and informed. Diana finds a lot of excitement and reward in her work as she feels she has truly found her niche in motivational speaking where she gets to combine her gift of comedy with her desire to share with people that they can learn to laugh. Through this, it is her greatest desire, "To heal the world one laugh at a time."
Diana has been nominated by the American Comedy Awards as one of the Top Five Female Comedians in the country. She was featured in the HBO special "Women of the Night" which spotlighted five top female comedians and also has two feature film roles to her credit including a performance in Sony's blockbuster hit "Jerry Maguire" with Tom Cruise and a co-starring credit in the independent film "Loretta's Surprise" that was featured in the Sundance Film Festival. Diana has been a featured performer on such notable television and radio shows as Oprah, Dr Phil, HBO, Showtime, The Bob & Tom Radio Show, and performed at such legendary venues including Radio City Music Hall and The Kennedy Center.
