Comic Storytelling

“Cindy Pierce is, was and will continue to be the funniest woman I have ever met. She is a natural storyteller.”
– Mike O’Malley, who plays Burt Hummel on Glee

Comfort in the Stumble

You will be howling with laughter when Pierce hits the stage with fresh stories reflecting her uncanny resilience despite her life of unraveling incident magnetism. Pierce starts the show exploring how she developed resilience thanks to the influence of a cast of family characters who helped raise her. As an adult, setbacks don’t faze her thanks to her ability to find humor, pick herself back up, and keep diving into life. The feast of stories include Pierce interviewing dancers backstage at a strip club, discovering the wonders of oatmeal diapers and working through the challenge of finding lady clothes.


Finding the Doorbell!
Cringe, laugh, cheer, and be relieved that Cindy experienced these mishaps and triumphs rather than you! Dicey situations retold — from the female condom, to an escapade with the “Last Resort Bra,” to everything you wanted to know about urinal mints — all illustrating her life-long determination to find humor rather than humiliation from her anatomy.


Leadership Workshop for Girls and Moms

Cindy teams up with Brook Raney, Girls Leadership Camp director to develop a program for 7th and 8th grade girls.
The overarching goal of this talk is to help girls start thinking about who they want to be and to develop the strength to stand up for themselves as they move through their teens. A combination of storytelling by Cindy and activities led by Brook address how our culture, music, media, Internet and technology are impacting girls’ day-to-day lives and choices. The stories, activities, discussion and information inspire girls to:
• Tune into their Inner Compass
• Enlist and maintain a Healthy Crew of friends and role models
• Develop self-respect and clear boundaries
• Become aware of the benefits of slowing down and being present
• Consider self-regulating dependence on technology
• Stay emotionally and physically safe
• Find conviction in what they believe
