Never-Before-Seen Footage From The Late Jeanne Robertson

Jeanne Robertson was a hilarious woman with such class. Check out this never-before-seen footage from the late Jeanne Robertson.

Jeanne talks to the audience and shares that there are people in the audience who she can tell have been up front before. She says that if you are speaking, you are very aware of everything that is going on in the room.

She jokes that there are people whispering in the back saying, “You mean in the great state of North Carolina… she was the best thing they had to send to Miss America.” The audience laughs. “I would have moved there with my sister had I known there was an emergency.” The crowd laughs harder. 

Jeanne says, “does anyone remember seeing me at the Miss America pageant?” One person raises a hand and Jeanne jokes that she never got on TV. Jeanne jokes about being 49th out of 50 for the Miss American pageant and she only beat a pitiful contestant who “played the comb for her talent.” She proceeds to tell how that girl had her high school shop team make a big comb that was wheeled out on a comb cart. Jeanne explains that this girl was smart, knew her audience, and played the one song guaranteed to get them on their feet. 

Jeanne closes by saying, “Find out what will work, that’s the thing.” 

It makes me think about Paul telling believers in Christ to be all things to all people. We are called to share the gospel in love and when we do, we meet people where they are at. May Jeanne’s humorous message resonate as we share God’s love with others.

"To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.  I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.” 1 Corinthians 9:22-23
