While working as a road comic in the Midwest, Zan won a radio contest and the prize was to open for Chonda Pierce, the Queen of Clean. The “one minute joke” paid off big and turned into an eighteen month national tour. This Cinderella story took her from comedy clubs to playing theatres, arenas and churches all over the country, culminating on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry during the taping of “This Ain’t Prettyville.”
Zan holds a Master of Fine Arts in theatre from UCSD in La Jolla. All of her material is clean, autobiographical and funny. The only complaint that audiences ever have is that they want more Zan!
Zan has performed at The Comic Strip, Gotham, Crackers, McCurdy’s, Coconuts, The Comedy Caravan, Mason City Limits, Snickers, Goonies, Wiley’s., Jr’s Last Laugh, Loonees, Go Bananas, Crackers, Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase, Loony Bins in Wichita and Little Rock, Turtle Creek Casino, Soaring Eagle Casino, Cactus Pete’s, and The Grand Ole Opry. She does corporate events at Country Clubs for Athletic Departments, Farm Corporations, Universities and often performs for churches, and theatres.

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 10 - 60 minutes
Zan is a very professional and confident comedian. She disarms the crowd with her charm and helps them feel comfortable, welcome, and part of something special. She's self deprecating and pokes fun of herself. She doesn't point out specific people to make them feel awkward, rather to draw them into the experience. You'll have a once in a life time, fun time, as she takes you away from your cares of the world and brings you to a place of gut busting laughter. Happens every time!
It's pretty simple. We just need a sound system, mic and speakers, and someone who knows how to work it. Lights on the stage area, and seats for the clients. That's about it. Pretty easy.
Zan's set list changes all the time. She talks about what's going on in the room, maybe what's going on in Entertainment news, and what challenges she has had to face with humor lately. If there are any topics you need her to talk about, she can incorporate them, and if there's anything you need her to stay away from, she can do that too.
