About
Jody Fuller is a comic, speaker, writer, and soldier with three tours of duty in Iraq. He currently holds the rank of Major in the US Army Reserves. Jody is also a lifetime stutterer.

In 2018, he was named one of the "Top 40 0ver 40" in Alabama Magazine and southernthing.com named him as one of "15 Southern stand-up comedians that will make you laugh 'til you cry."

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.

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 in 7 books from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series including:

He is a member of two NSAs: the National Stuttering Association and the National Speakers Association.

Jody lives in Opelika, Alabama, with his wife, daughter, and way too many dogs.

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!

I don't think i can truly paint a picture in your mind with words that would begin to describe what this man brought to our organization last night. Jody is not only a comedian, speaker, writer and soldier with 3 tours of duty in Iraq, he is also such a genuine, humble, and HILARIOUS guy! We had about 70 people at our Volunteer Appreciation Banquet and he had us all doubled over in laughter the entire night as he taught us 4 valuable life lessons. If you are looking for good, clean, fun entertainment for your next group gathering I highly recommend booking this guy! 2 Thumbs up!!!

Jody was phenomenal! He came to the event early to have dinner and mingle with our company employees. He was very friendly and engaging. He was not only hilarious but also inspirational as we talked about the value of teamwork and learning to listen well. I would hire him again and highly recommend him.

Jody provided the quality type of comedian and motivational speaker we were looking for. All of his jokes were clean and tied into an overall message of leadership and motivation. His real life experience provides a variety which the entire audience can relate to.
