Lisa Pedace is a funny keynote speaker, comedian, actor, and all-around expert on fun.

She is the author of the award-winning humor book, The Diet Joke, which encourages readers to reexamine their habits, maximize their well-being, and enjoy life more.

Lisa has made audiences laugh in four countries and loves to see how quickly humor can connect us to one another.

When Lisa’s mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s over a decade ago, she moved back to her hometown to help.

As Lisa’s focus shifted, so did her health and relationships as she struggled to find balance and joy in the midst of a heart-breaking and devastating illness.

Just making light of a situation was no longer enough. A new way of thinking was required. 

Lisa shares what she learned: the importance of self-care, the joy to be found in the smallest of things, and the impact we can all have simply by being relaxed and fully present in the moment.

Lisa also loves long walks, games, and cake.
