Elaine Williams is a college speaker and award-winning comedian who educates audiences with her soul-baring story of food, drug and alcohol addiction. Using personal stories and appropriate humor from her years as a headlining stand-up comic, students relate to her authenticity as she drives home a message of healing, help, and education.
I believe that if we spent more time educating and raising awareness in order to prevent assaults and addictions, we could change the world.
My workshops and programs include:
With Elaine’s “Party Fouls” program, she shares her “highly functioning addiction” story, peppered with hilarious jokes about her put-the-fun-in-dysfunctional-family.
She shows the students why Thinking-It-Through is smart and how to party safely; deal with stress, without doing risky behavior. She addresses the pressure of wanting to do well in school while also feeling pressure to connect socially, fit in, and be cool.
Elaine shares her eating disorder journey and how she was able to stop abusing herself with food, dieting, and laxatives.
She addresses why so many students struggle with stress eating and offers tools and solutions for breaking the habit now before it’s too late.
Elaine talks about alcohol, drugs and stress; how to have fun without flunking out.
My audiences walk away with simple tools that they can easily integrate into their busy schedules. They leave with more choices, awareness, and the power to stop risky behavior.

“Elaine Williams will profoundly move your audience, whether she is serious, funny or both. Whatever the topic, she speaks from her truth and her heart. That is very rare and greatly needed in our world.”

“I would just like to say that it was a pleasure hearing Elaine speak at my school. I never really thought that I had much of a food binging problem until I sat in on her lecture. It’s amazing how the mind frame works for everyone from someone acknowledging food as a source of a stress reliever (like me) and then you have those who see themselves as extremely obese when they were a size four. I have always liked my weight; nonetheless, eating too little and eating too much is not health at all and I can thank Elaine for sharing her vital information and her personal battle with an eating disorder. We need more people like her to help spread the word to all in the United States so that we can have healthier models and not be known as the most obese country in the world.”
