UVa-Wise presents Jeanne Robertson


The UVa-Wise Abingdon office is very excited to present award-winning speaker and humorist Jeanne Robertson at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center on Saturday, May 14, 2016. Doors will open at 3 p.m. and the show will begin at 4 p.m. Concessions will be available throughout the event.

Tickets are on sale for $32 at or by phone at (276) 619-4317. Tickets purchased on the day of the show will be $37.

Although Jeanne is hilarious, she is not a comedian. She is a professional speaker and humorist who gets her audiences to listen because she is a funny, funny person. Her material evolves from personal experiences and is appropriate for all ages. Because she tells stories from everyday life, her audiences can relate. They laugh and learn at the same time.
