Dinner with Special Guest Speaker: Jessica Holmes "Depression, The Comedy"

April 13, 2016 6:00 PM to 9:00 PMDelta Regina Hotel, Regina, Saskatchewan
Area of Interest: Networking Format: In Person

CPBI Saskatchewan Regional Council is very pleased to welcome Jessica Holmes as part of a special evening event.  

Jessica Holmes, a favourite on CBC TV’s Royal Canadian Air Farce, has brought the house down opening for giants such as Ellen DeGeneres, Leslie Nielsen, Jerry Seinfeld, and Oprah Winfrey, and is known for her unique knack for skewering celebrities such as Celine Dion and Britney Spears. She also starred in her own sketch comedy series on CTV: The Holmes Show, where she brought to life hilarious characters and impressions.

As a performer, Holmes’s productions have garnered her a “Platinum Award” at The Worldfest International Film Festival, and nominations for Gemini Awards and the prestigious Tim Sims Scholarship. She is also known for her work in films, including Welcome to Mooseport, Citizen Duane, and Moonpoint. She continues to perform comedy across the country, including an appearance in 2016 on CBC’s Winnipeg Comedy Festival television special.

Holmes devotes much time to helping others live well. In her keynotes, she mixes humour with her message about de-stressing and laughing at life’s shortcomings, speaking with intelligence and insight on her own experiences: dealing with post-partum depression, finding work-life balance, and re-igniting passion. She recently received certification as a wellness coach from San Diego’s Life Purpose Institute.

Her autobiographical book, I Love Your Laugh, was published in 2010. She’s currently working on a follow up.

Depression: The Comedy

This is a frank and hilarious account of how it took Jessica Holmes two years to get diagnosed as depressed. Since depression is a mental illness, not a physical one like chicken pox or a missing limb, it’s difficult to quantify. Jessica’s was a very gradual descent from a 9/10 in life satisfaction to an emotional dumpster.

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?”.
