A fond and sad farewell to my dear friend, mentor, and the G.O.A.T. of all Humorists, the Legendary Jeanne Robertson.
She passed away one week ago.
We have lost too many of the Great Ones in 2021.
Jeanne Robertson’s Celebration of Life is Sunday, August 29, 2021, 2 PM EST at this link.
She brought smiles and belly laughs to Hundreds of MILLIONS. She joins her sweetheart Jerry who passed a month and a half prior.
So grateful to have given her a hug at our NSA INFLUENCE in Las Vegas after she brought the house down while in her weakened state, a most courageous performance as she slayed a room of professional speakers who were uncontrollably howling and bent over with laughter, a show that no one else could ever match.
She is THE funniest person I have ever seen on stage, and I’ve seen a lot of great performers. I wrote about it in this post right after her performance.
Quick Story about Jeanne:
Last December, to end 2020, as I was working desperately & overtime to sell tickets to my ill-fated Virtual Show “Santa Got Run Over By A Raptor” from my home, Jeanne asked her wonderful manager, Al McCree (who produced my show to try and help me make some money),
“Al, how are ticket sales for Jason’s show?”
Al told her honestly,
“Jeanne, it’s coming along but very slowly, we are just hoping people will show up last minute at this point.”
Jeanne thought for a moment and offered,
“Do you think Jason would come on my Back Porch with Jeanne Virtual Show I do every week? We get thousands of viewers each time. What if we had him on the day after Christmas? That should help with ticket sales!”
And that was Jeanne. A majority of our viewers for my show were her fans. She now makes the angels in Heaven smile.
Thank you Jeanne for being such an influence, teacher, and blessing in my life. You kept The Promise to every audience, and to every person you influenced. I love you and we will miss you.
