Like all Royce Carlton Speakers, Nancy Giles is exclusively represented by Royce Carlton, Inc. for lectures and speaking engagements.
CBS Sunday Morning contributor, comedian, actress, and self-described "Accidental Pundette," Nancy Giles is a funny, perceptive, and provocative observer of today’s world. For over 14 years, Giles’ acclaimed work on the Emmy Award-winning CBS Sunday Morning has provided the largest audience yet for her unique blend of common sense wisdom, laugh-out-loud humor, and social and political commentary.
Giles believes “humor bridges what divides and can even stop people from shouting at each other.” On topics from politics and race to pop culture and body image, she says, “I want to make people laugh, and I want to entertain them, but I also want to provoke thought and discussion." She has offered her perspectives as a frequent guest on The Today Show, The Joy Behar Show, and The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell.
A veteran of Chicago’s esteemed Second City improv troupe, Giles appeared for three seasons on the TV drama China Beach. Her one-woman shows include The Further Adventures of the Accidental Pundette, Notes of a Negro Neurotic, and Black Comedy: The Wacky Side of Racism, which the Village Voice called “smart and unforgiving.”
In her speeches, Nancy discusses such things as Race, Political Gaffes and Blunders, Life in the 24-hour News Cycle, Mentoring, and Finding Your Creative Voice.
