Comedian for Women's Night Out Events
If laughter is the best medicine, then award-winning comedian Nancy Witter offers the best prescription for women’s health and wellness audiences. Her hilarious, insightful, unique talks both entertain and empower women. She brings her experiences as a Certified Life Coach and the author of Who’s Better Than Me? A Guide to Living Happily Ever After, to her memorable, life-enhancing programs.
“Who’s Better Than Me?” is how Nancy Witter wants every woman to feel about herself and her life. Nancy says “Life is hard enough, so we need every bit of confidence and self-respect we can muster. I don’t care if you just parallel parked into a great parking spot, received your PhD in Archeology, got 20% off a great pair of shoes, or just gave birth to triplets. After each one of these events, large and small, you should roll your eyes upward and with a sly grin say to yourself ‘Who’s is better than me?’”
Growing up in very large Irish family, and struggling as a working single mother for 20 years, gave Nancy all the material she needed to sustain her throughout her comedy career. She used it as a way to help her cope as she struggled to balance a full-time job at a bank, and build a successful comedy and speaking career. It also gave her the passion to help women who have similar struggles in life. So much so that when Nancy turned 50 she enrolled at NYU and obtained her Professional Certification in Life Coaching.
During Nancy’s long standing comedy career she has won three New York City MAC Awards (Metropolitan Association of Cabarets and Clubs) for Outstanding Female Comedian, and a MAC award for her one woman show “Dignity Check Please!” She was one of five finalists in Nick at Nite’s Funniest Moms in America. Nancy has performed in sold out theaters across the country while touring for five years with the hit comedy trio “Mama’s Night Out.”

Dignity Check Please!
Nancy’s acclaimed talk “Dignity Check Please” started out as a NYC MAC Award winning one woman show. It is about women discovering the joy of self-acceptance.
