Comedy

Dr. Nancy Berk connects with people by pairing her award-winning humor and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. As a stand-up, her comedy is smart and insightful, spiked with unique analyses and driven by the skills she acquired as a lecturing professor trying to hold the attention of a few disinterested college students. This ability to tailor comedy to a specific demographic has led to her specialized shows and appearances, most recently her Quilting Comedy Tour ― a show she designed to capture the nuances, talent, and humor that surrounds quilters and their uniquely creative community.

A finalist in the 2016 Stand-Up Pittsburgh comedy competition, Nancy’s national stand-up and keynote/speaking engagements include TEDx, the American Marketing Association, Women’s Summit, the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop, Wendy Liebman’s Locally Grown Comedy, and the International Ventriloquism Convention.

Television, radio, stage, or meeting venue, her skills and understanding of audience dynamics help create a memorable event.
