Kick Off Keynote Speaker
Jessica Holmes - Celebrated Comedian, Author & Mental Health Advocate
Depression the Comedy
This is a frank and hilarious account of how it took Jessica Holmes two years to get diagnosed as depressed. It started small: she resented “fun stuff” like girls night out, developed a loathing for words like “wellness,” and avoided foods that promised to prolong her life. Even when she yawned her way through an emceeing job for Oprah Winfrey didn’t sound any alarms for her. By the end of 2013, Jessica slept more than the cat, gave her husband a hall pass, and told her TV agent “hold my calls for six months” before diagnosis. In the nearly two years that she had transitioned from “cheerleader” to “zombie”, she hadn’t taken stock of how far she had veered from her ideal life of fulfillment and gratitude. Jessica’s story, which has a deeply happy ending, relates to anyone who has ever been on a downhill trajectory, whether with health, relationships, or career, who forgot to stop and ask “where am I?”
Jessica Holmes has opened for giants like Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, and Oprah Winfrey. Combining stand-up, music, and improvisation, she performed at Just For Laughs and The Second City before starring in her own TV series, The Holmes Show.
Also a wellness advocate, Holmes mixes comedy with a validating message about life’s challenges in her book, Depression The Comedy, and has become a celebrated voice in fighting the stigma surrounding mental health issues in her hilarious and inspirational keynotes.
A mother of two (and wife of one), Holmes’ passion is finding the laughs in life's imperfections and turning embarrassments into punchlines.
