Opener: Julie Fretwell
Learning to laugh has become a way of life for Julia Anne, actually a way of survival. Having lived through abusive relationships, two near fatal car accidents and five major spine surgeries, Julia has gone from barely walking to walking on stage to share her life as both a professional comedian and award winning speaker. Since 2009, Julia has been performing comedy for audiences throughout the country. Julia’s comedy is all original and comes from her own life experiences. Her style has been described as a “been-there-done-that reality check” that will leave you busting up laughing” and “a breath of fresh air.”
