About
Whether you are looking for a comedian or a motivational speaker, Sandra Risser is the person for you. When it comes to comedy, she's been called one of the funniest comedians in the Bay Area. She was named by The Culture Trip as one of 8 comedians to "watch for in San Francisco". She performs solo or can bring an entire lineup of hilarious comics. When it comes to motivational speaking, she uses honesty and humor to strike an emotional chord with the audience.

Sandra Risser is smart, funny and older than Twinkies! She's eccentric not crazy, drives in the fast lane and claims she can still bench press 500 grams. She believes in the tooth fairy, Santa Clause and clean underwear.

Her Motto: "If you miss your ex, reload and fire again!"

Sandra is a quick witted, vibrant comic and a dynamic speaker.

Her comedy grabs the audience with her first sentence and keeps them laughing throughout her set. Young and old alike are captivated by her unorthodox and irreverent look at growing up in Iowa and surviving the sex, drugs and rock 'n roll culture of the 60's & 70's.

Audiences are riveted when she speaks as they know she's speaking from experience and a true belief in her subject. Her overall message is life should be lived to the fullest. She debunks the saying "you can't teach an old dog new tricks which emphasis her message that it's never too late to take the steps necessary to move your life in the direction you want it to go. Her underlying message is we are not immortal so make the most of the time you've got.

Her impressive credits include one woman shows, both comedic and a one act dramatic play she wrote that is based on her earlier years, at the Edinburgh, Scotland; Brighton, England; Santa Cruz, CA and Rogue, Fresno CA Fringe Festivals. She was in the SheDot Comedy Festival in Toronto, Canada and the Sacramento Comedy Festival in Sacramento CA. Sandra was a finalist in The World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas NV and is the winner of the Killer Laughs, Go Baby Productions Winner Take All and Battle of the Sexes Comedy Competitions.

Sandra has entertained audiences with laugh filled performances at nationally renowned comedy clubs like the Comedy Store-Hollywood, San Francisco Punchline & Cobbs-San Francisco, Ice House-Pasadena, Jokers Comedy Club-Richland, San Jose Improv and LA Comedy Club in the Stratosphere Hotel in Las Vegas.. She's featured for nationally known comics such as Will Durstl, Larry "Bubbles" Brown, Paul Ogata, Charlie Wiener, Huck Flyn, Darren Carter, Andrew Norelli, Kirk McHenry, Honest John.

Sandra is an accomplished actor and speaker. She was featured in the dark comedy "Help Wanted", earned 3 "Artie" nominations for best supporting actress and won her division's "Toastmaster's International Speech Contest".

In both comedy and speaking, Sandra builds a unique bond with the audience as she share stories about her own journey from youth to young adult to middle age and beyond. She continues to live her life to the fullest. Whether she's using self deprecating humor doing standup comedy or being more serious when giving motivational seminars, she is an inspiration to her audiences. When people leave, they know they've seen a unique talent and that "age is just a state of mind".

Sandra Risser helped me laugh and smile when I was having a difficult time with turning 50. She is a very good entertainer and an incredibly good human being and I very much enjoyed having attention from her. She helped me in a big way that I will always appreciate very much.

Hire this lady! Very funny. My father, a church elder, my children, 17-20, and those in between all loved her. Her humor is clean with wonderful, sexual innuendo that the imagination of each person in the audience can interpret. Even though I hired her just a few days prior to the party, she included comments and jokes based on information I sent. I was as impressed with her professionalism & how accommodating she was as by how funny she is. I highly recommend hiring her.
