Heather Tolley-Bauer

Comedian | Motivational Speaker

Heather Tolley-Bauer is a wife-mom-comedian-cancer-survivor-straight-shooting-cracker-upper-of-audiences-and-encourager-of-women who believes there is power in hyphens. Obviously.

She started doing stand-up comedy after transitioning from the corporate and entrepreneurial worlds into one of the hardest yet most hilarious jobs there is: being a stay-at-home mom. Her observational humor is liberation and inspiration all rolled into one—not just for her, but for audiences who need a hall pass from the pressures of parenting, Pinterest and the PTA.

 In the last year, Heather has found an even more important reason to laugh her butt off: her recovery from colon cancer. Now, more than ever, she’s determined to speak up and encourage women to genuinely embrace their stories, love themselves, and to remember it’s okay to eat a freakin’ cupcake once-in-awhile.
