 “Jen gave a fantastic performance at our Service Achievement Awards. She was able to keep the crowd laughing and didn’t miss a beat.  She has the ability to read the audience well and I would recommend her for any Corporate or other event!”

“Jennifer Grant was a fabulous addition to our Corporate Client event hosted in conjunction with the Global Business Travel Association Canada Conference. “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Conference” was the theme of our event. Jennifer was a true blast… as the finale act, she provided real-life reasons for us to laugh our faces off… her humour was appropriate for the audience … it was personal and it was hilarious! Jen was the perfect way to conclude our evening and kept us all laughing into the conference the following day! “

NANCY TUDORACHE, DIRECTOR OF SALES AND MARKETING, SOHO METROPOLITAN HOTEL & RESIDENCES

“On behalf of NWR, thank you very much for contributing to a very fun and successful 2014 Holiday Celebration . Not only were you extremely funny, but your material was clean, your presentation was corporately respectful, and your professionalism was apparent at every turn. I would be happy to recommend you for additional functions whenever possible. Thanks” 

NWR Site Community Awareness Team -Jason Shurko

“I’ve seen Jen perform in front of every type of audience and she always delivers. Definitely one of Canada’s best. Jen’s like the sister we all wish we had. Smart, hilarious and I’m pretty sure she can handle herself in a fist fight. Jen Grant makes comedy look very easy, through very hard work. She is among the most respected comediennes in North America for good reason.” 

SUPER COMIC STEVE PATTERSON - HOST OF CBC'S THE DEBATERS.

“Recently we hosted a VIP “by invitation only” event and engaged three high profile Canadian comedians to provide the entertainment. The feedback from our guests regarding our overall our event was nothing short of spectacular. Although all of our entertainers were Top Notch, I had tears running down my face as I was listening & watching Jen perform … I don’t think that I will ever again think of child birth in the same way since Jen shared her experiences regarding her sister’s delivery. For anyone who wants to have a quiet & reserved event, DON’T hire Jen, as she will hav

e your guests rolling on the floor laughing… we had a phenomenal event, and Jen Grant was indeed one of the primary reasons for our success.”

Jen Grant is a force of nature!  She came highly recommended to me by a friend who had seen her speak and I am so happy she spoke at our conference of School Board Employees.

Jen is clever and very funny!  Her witty wisdom is grounded in solid practical advice on how to change your life in a positive, effective way.  She seamlessly weaved in and out of making us laugh hysterically and sending a powerful message of the importance of less stress in our lives.  This in turn gives us more happiness, better health, and increased success.  We were extremely pleased with her presentation and humorous style and we would welcome her back anytime.
