Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

There is nothing more beautiful than a smile nor anything more heart warming than laughter! Each of us encounter a faux pas on a regular basis, you know, the ol' foot in the mouth routine that later appears in somebody's joke. Thus, enters the comedian who thrives on putting us in front of a mirror forcing us to confront life's realities we would truly rather simply forget or totally ignore. There is no way around it...American needs comedians! BUT have you ever heard of an inspirational comedian?

I am so blessed to be able to do what I do. I get to combine my two favorite things in the world. I love to entertain and make people laugh. I also love to help people grow and develop. I thrive on getting people to think about things, shift their perception, and hope that I might just be able to give them something to help make their life better. Combining those two on stage is just about as good as it gets! - Judson Laipply
