About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Jody Fuller is a clean comedian, motivational speaker, writer, and soldier with three tours of duty in Iraq. He is also a lifetime stutterer. Recently, Alabama Magazine named Jody as one of their "Top 40 0ver 40" whose lives and careers are characterized by great levels of giving and achievement. He was also named as “one of the 15 Southern stand-up comedians that will make you laugh 'til you cry” by “It's a Southern Thing,” and GI Jobs Magazine listed him as “One of 15 Veterans taking the comedy world by storm.” Additionally, Jody has a Dry Bar Comedy special filmed live and in color from Provo, Utah. Growing up in Opelika, AL Jody had to overcome two things: poverty and stuttering. Enlisting in the Army after high school helped him overcome the poverty but the stuttering continues to be a daily challenge, but he wouldn't have it any other way. His stories about stuttering will make you laugh, but, more importantly, will bring awareness to an often overlooked condition. After a 4 year stint as an Army medic, he returned home to attend college at Auburn University at Montgomery where he received a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration. Along the way, before and after that first enlistment in the Army, he worked at Kroger for 8 1/2 years. The stories are hilarious and had a meaningful impact on his life. After 9/11, he returned to the Army by way of Officer Candidate School (OCS) at Ft. Benning, GA. After OCS and follow on schools, he was assigned to 2nd Infantry Division at Ft. Lewis, WA where he would soon deploy to Iraq for the first time as the Platoon Leader of the third largest platoon in the United States Army. In 2006, Jody left active duty Army to join the Alabama National Guard and subsequently deployed to Iraq two more times. In 2014, he transferred to the Reserves and was promoted to the rank of Major. He separated from the service in 2017. When not in uniform, Jody performs for a wide range of audiences from corporations to conferences to disability groups to troops at home and abroad. To date, he has entertained troops in 15 countries around the world. He's worked with the likes of Louie Anderson, James Gregory, and Jeff Foxworthy. He is a syndicated columnist and has been published 10 times in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. He is a member of two NSAs: the National Stuttering Association and the National Speakers Association. Jody lives in Opelika, Alabama.

ConventionReviewed on June 18, 2019From Gulf Breeze, FL

I wasn't sure what to expect in a stuttering comedian, but Jody delivered above and beyond! He had the whole room laughing nonstop and even received a standing ovation at the end of his set. His act was clean, family-friendly, heartfelt and, most of all, hilarious! I would definitely recommend Jody to other organizations and events looking to add some laughter and fun to their agenda. We would hire him again in an instant! Jody was easy to work with and very accommodating. Couldn't have asked for a more professional or nicer guy!
