Groups who especially love her routines include --
- Hospitals/medical people
Including doctors/surgeons, volunteers, women's auxiliary, special
events for the public, health insurance groups and staff.
- Financial groups
Including bankers, credit union groups, etc.
- Women's groups
She doesn't have a "chick act" but she does appeal to "chicks" -- uh,
From mushroom growers to tech associations and file cabinet salesmen.
- Male groups with spouses
Including male-dominated groups who bring their wives. Everyone enjoys her shows, plus, since the guys golfed all day, the women feel that hiring a woman comic is something done specially for them!
Special life skills background --
- Spent many pre-comedy years as marketing director for several associations in Washington DC
So, she understands associations and can speak their lingo! She worked for optical engineers and scientists (the ones who built the Hubble telescope) and she worked for a construction trade association. Bring on the plumbers and HVACers!
- Her act focuses mostly on family/kids, working in an office, and relationships.
She uses all original material from her own experiences.
- Worked for the US Government (National Ocean Service) and the D.C. tourism industry
Basically Jan McInnis does well with groups who work in an office OR people who work around nutty rules and
convoluted policies - because she has been there!!
Notable clients include --
- Kaiser-Permanente Medical Group
- Granite Rock Corporation
- Lennox Manufacturing
- Visalia Women's Trade Group
- Galaxy Plus Credit Union System
What others say about Jan McInnis --
- Permanente Medical Group, Inc.
"Thank you for putting on such a great show for our
hospital staff dinner. We especially liked how you tailored the show
to our group and that none of the jokes were offensive. Everyone
thought that you were hilarious and really enjoyed your
presentation." -- Gordon Manashil, MD, Physician-in-chief
"Everyone had a great
time and laughed endlessly. It was lively and flawless." --
- Hanover Area Management Association
"Our group thought you were great! I just received an email form one of the members telling me how much he enjoyed the meeting and he though you were a riot. The group really loved the way you pulled info from their companies into your lines." -- Pat Miller
Sample comments --
- "I just read that there are fewer women in the workforce than men. I think that's because we women warn
each other. Once a year we have that 'take your daughter to work' day and show them what happens when you don't marry rich!"
- "We went from D.C. to California with the windows rolled up and Dad smoking four packs a day. We got out of the car in L.A. and thought . . . clean air!"
