Sharon was a fantastic spotlight on Administrative Professionals Day. They loved her!
Sharon is clearly very funny, we enjoyed the fact that she kept it very clean and still managed to make us all laugh. Thanks Sharon!
I asked Sharon if she would be our keynote speaker for our annual conference in Portland recently. Her background as an educator fit in perfectly with our audience. Not only her ability to relate to the audience but her EXTREMELY HUMOROUS stories kept the entire crowd in stitches. I cannot count how many of my attendees immediately asked afterwards if I could have her return next year. I would strongly recommend her for any back to school event. Bravo!
Sharon incorporated some industry specific humour into her routine which was greatly appreciated. Her material was clean and suitable for all ages. Sharon is a very pleasant person and a pleasure to deal with.
Sharon Lacey was a joy to have. She did an excellent job engaging with our audience--we had great feedback from our attendees. I will definitely recommend her to other organizations we work with.
Sharon Lacey set just the right tone for our adviser luncheon at the National Scholastic Journalism Convention. The lunch was a tribute to a long-time member and Sharon worked some nice specifics into her routine, so it really touched our honoree. Sharon arrived on time and was well prepared. She was a pleasure to work with from our first contact. She is a pro.
Sharon presented herself well and made us all laugh until we cried! We were so blessed by her and her enthusiasm. She was early and we would have her again in the future!
Sharon did am AMAZING job at keeping everyone entertained, Thank You for all you do.
Sharon was amazing. She did thorough homework on our business and really set the tone for our awards night. She had everyone rolling on the floor laughing. Couldn't say enough good things..
Sharon has attended two of our state wide events for foster youth on campus at Western Oregon University. Both times she was a major hit with the youth and adults. She took the time to research the event she was coming to and her audience. Her comedy/motivational speaking was tailored to the theme of our Conference and as well as the young people in her audience. The youth gave her raving reviews both years she attended. We definitely plan on having her come back in the future.
Sharon opened the show about our company. We were all impressed with how she engaged the team. We have a diverse group and she did an amazing job making everyone laugh. She was our surprise for the employees they did not know we had booked her. What a great surprise she was. Her closing was classic, getting the president, finance and production all up and dancing was hilarious. Would highly recommend her to any company event and look forward to booking her for our parent company. Cheryl Ann Mattia - HR for Pace International, LLC
I booked Sharon to perform at our annual conference. It was our 40th anniversary conference so we wanted something special. Sharon was hilarious and even tailored much of her performance around credit union collections to fit out crowd. It was a great show and everyone enjoyed themselves. I look forward to being able to watch her perform again in the future.
I hired Sharon to perform a comedy night at my coffee house. She exceeded expectations, bringing an evening of clean fun and much laughter. I wouldn't hesitate to ask her back.
Our office was having fun together and laughing. It was great opportunity to escape from the stress of the day and learn some skills that helped us. Well worth it.

What to Expect
Sharon Lacey works closely with each client to be sure to provide exactly the kind of performance you're hoping for. Whether you're looking for a keynote speech, a workshop session, or corporate entertainment, you won't be getting some canned "one-size-fits-all" presentation.

Sharon Lacey is a Corporate Comedian/ Motivational Humorist who believes life should be an adventure! With a degree in Mass Communication, Sharon started out with on-air jobs in several radio and television stations, and eventually was a news producer at KGW-TV in Portland.
Wanting to make a more “positive” impact on the world, Sharon next began a career as a teacher. She is a national winner of the prestigious Disney American Teacher Award, and was awarded several other honors including TCI Oregon Teacher of the Year, and the Japan Fulbright Memorial Fund Scholarship.
At age 50, Sharon decided to take on a new challenge: Stand up comedy. She now headlines comedy clubs all across America, has been on two tours of Iraq and Kuwait to entertain U.S. troops, and just returned from her third headlining tour in Africa where she performs for Ugandan audiences in two of their tribal languages. Sharon is most proud of the fundraising work she does, delivering desperately needed supplies to the children and elderly in Ugandan villages.
