Diana Jordan      

Veteran Stand-up Comedienne & Breast Cancer Survivor

Diana Jordan is a living testament as how her sense of humor has gotten her through difficult times.

It was the application of humor to her own life circumstances that moved her want to share her gift of humor as a female motivational speaker.

A veteran stand-up female comedian, Diana Jordan has been entertaining audiences for over twenty years. When she appeared on Oprah for the first time, Oprah selected her as "One of the funniest people on the planet," and Dr. Oz says, "Hire Diana! She proved how laughter is truly the best medicine and I love her gigglebox."

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. Diana and her mother both found that you can learn to have a sense of humor.

Unfortunately, Diana had to apply what she learned from the experience with her mom to herself. In 2010 she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a mastectomy. She had breast cancer reconstruction surgery, going a cup size bigger okay, two cup sizes bigger (still tasteful!) and when asked at the airport if she was prepared to sit in the emergency row of the airplane Diana quipped, "Don't worry, I AM the flotation device!" Diana is a living testament to how her sense of humor got her through the difficult times. "People always tell me this is my journey. If that is so and life's a journey, I finally learned how to pack!"

Diana has lived in Athens, Greece, Hawaii (twice), Chicago, Atlanta, Las Vegas,and even did the starving actress/waitress in New York in an attempt to get on Broadway (the play closed). Her wanderlust has rewarded her with a bountiful life that has been full of excitement and adventure. This is why she now lives in Malibu. It's a small community and QUIET! Diana finds a lot of excitement and reward in her work as she feels she has truly found her niche as a motivational speaker 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."

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.
