#168 Jeanne Robertson
Last Friday night I took my parents (to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary) to see Jeanne Robertson at the Murat Egyptian Room. Jeanne is a professional speaker/humorist who is an Auburn University alumnus. I first heard her speak at a women’s Final Four in Tacoma, Washington over 20 years ago. She describes herself as “six feet two inches tall with my hair mashed down on my head”. She is hilarious! She’s in her late 60s now but still as funny. She’s also a former Miss North Carolina and was in the Miss America pageant in 1963. She basically tells stories about herself (topping out at 6’2” at the age of 12), her husband (left brain) and her son (Beaver). If you ever get the chance to see her, DO IT!
