100% Clean Comedian and Motivational Speaker
Organizations book Lisa for one simple reason – she’s unbelievably inspiring and undeniably funny! With years of being on the road, developing her craft and discovering what matters most to event planners, Lisa has found the “sweet spot” of balancing a powerful message with a unique blend of show, humor, and motivation.
Years ago, while enjoying a very successful career of building family and community partnerships through social service and nonprofit organizations, Lisa sensed something new was on her professional horizon. During that time, she had the accidental privilege of standing on stage at a women’s conference where she was given the last-minute charge to “make people fall out of their seats laughing.” Not one to shrink from a challenge, Lisa poured out her larger-than-life heart and humor for six hundred women who gave her a standing ovation. She’s been on the road ever since!
That event changed everything. For Lisa, it marked the beginning of building a successful full-time comedy career and speaking business from the ground up. An accomplishment she credits to that one moment of insane courage while standing on stage telling jokes and sharing hope with those amazing women.
Today, as a professional speaker and headlining comedian at events that range from hospitals to universities to military bases and everything in between, Lisa often has the privilege of sharing how that incredible experience changed her life.
Regularly asked how she comes up with laugh out loud material, Lisa responds, “Plain and simple, there is enough laughter in everyday life to keep us all in stitches if we will just look for it!” Her unique blend of slightly skewed, southern-spun humor appeals to a variety of audiences. Convinced that there are more things that unite us than separate us, she brings all types of people together through laughter. Lisa’s hilarious authenticity makes her a definite dynamo to any program.
Lisa is an award-winning, 100% clean comedian, motivational speaker, actor, and author. Her acting debut was working alongside network television’s favorite military gal, Catherine Bell on the Lifetime Channel’s hit show, Army Wives. As an in-demand keynote speaker, she is known for her message of “Transforming Ordinary into Extraordinary: The power of connection to impact, inspire, and influence.” Her always funny, laser-sharp wit has been featured on the Lifetime Network, NOW Network, Impact Network, Netflix, the Dove Channel, and iHeart Radio. She can be seen headlining venues around the country while touring and promoting her latest book, Lord Did I Really Shave My Legs For This?
Lisa Mills resides with her beautiful family just outside the city of Atlanta, Georgia.
