Comedian and edu-tainer Vanella Jackson-Crawford will look on the lighter side of relationships, aging and life in general. Join us for light refreshment and light entertainment

Vanella Jackson-Crawford is a student of life. This comedian , writer, trainer and performer likes to leave her audiences laughing with a refreshing look at everyday issues of relationships, aging, grand parenting, sex, weight loss, dieting and life. Vanella! is defined as an edu-tainer, who offers advice with a comedic twist. Or, as in the words of her father, “cracking but facting.”

When asked how she got into comedy, Vanella said, “Comedy helps me accept life. Sometimes life can be so challenging, that , “if I don’t laugh, I’ll leap. Laughing gives hope for looking at life differently.”

While new to the performance of stand up, she is not a stranger to public speaking. Vanella has appeared at the Riot Act Comedy Theater in Washington, DC.

Vanella will be speaking to us on Wednesday April 3 from 2:30 to 4:00 in the Gwendolyn Coffield Community Center, 2450 Lyttonsville Road, Silver Spring. Open to the public. RSVP via the Village website calendar, by email to, or by phoning the Village at 301-503-7401.
