August 6th COMEDY
LISA LANE is an overeducated goofball who finds the funny in the balancing act of parenting teenagers, becoming single at age 50, and navigating the chin hairs and wrinkles on her very own face. She is a regular host, feature, and mother figure in the Denver comedy scene and has most recently performed with Steve Rannazzisi, Gina Brillon, Steve Gillespie, and the MLB All-Star Game 5K. Lisa is the author of Teenagers Suck and Beyond Mama Bear as well as an announcer and voiceover actor. Her real-life misadventures were deemed “grossly adorable” by comedian and podcast host Dan Cummins, which makes Lisa feel both seen and heard.
Lisa’s shows for corporate and not-for-profit organizations offer wit and wisdom on work-life balance, the balancing act of working with other human beings, managing priorities, fighting ‘fires’ in the office, and leveraging humor to build business. Her energy, affability, and irreverent (slightly twisted) viewpoint make her a favorite keynote or opener at a variety of conferences, meetings, fundraisers, and networking events.
Her shows for parents, parenting groups, and educators offer frank and funny advice for frazzled families and anyone who knows the pain of working with teenagers. Based on years of research and experience as mother, teacher, and funny lady, Lisa’s message gives hope (and lots of laughs) to all those trying to survive the delicate balancing act of surviving adolescence. (Parents, you’re not alone. And you’re not imagining it: Your children ARE trying to destroy you! But there are practical ways to know, protect, and honor our kids as they make their way toward adulthood.)
