There Were Intruders In Her Home, But Her Husband's Reaction Had The Audience In Stitches
How hilarious is this story? Anyone who finds a bat in their bedroom has quite the tale on their hands, but few tell it as fantastically as this woman. Jeanne Robertson has made her career as a witty and entertaining professional speaker. She had very different beginnings, however; originally, she achieved fame in the pageant circuit. In 1963, at the age of 19, she won the title of Miss North Carolina. At that year's Miss America competition, she was named "Miss Congeniality". Robertson has stated that this win was the impetus for her future career choice. Robertson describes herself as a humorist, rather than a comedian, explaining that humorists take more time to tell interesting stories, rather than try for the quickest laugh.
