Jeanne Robertson

Other speakers might be as witty as Jeanne Robertson. Some might even be as tall. (With her hair “mashed” down, she’s 6’2″ in her size 11B stocking feet.) But no others turn personal experiences into funny material quite the way that she does. This Miss Congeniality winner in the Miss America Pageant – “yearrrrrrrrrrrs ago” – tells her stories in a down-home Southern drawl, leaving audiences laughing… and thinking about her message. Jeanne Robertson will take the stage of the Newberry Opera House, October 18th and 19th at 3 p.m., and October 20th and 21st at 8 p.m. She’ll even raffle off a Cracker Barrel rocking chair at the end of each show! This event, originally scheduled for May 14th through 16th, will be presented with reduced capacity seating and other COVID-19 safety measures; details online or by calling the Box Office (803-276-6264).
