Leanne’s storied career has landed her on stage at the Montreal Comedy Festival and has brought her development deals for her own sitcom with ABC and Warner Brothers, writer/producer Matt Williams (“Rosanne” and “Home Improvement”),TV Land and currently with Sony Television. I guess you could say she’s the Mrs. Maisel of Appalachia!
Clips from Leanne’s Dry Bar Comedy Special “So Yummy” garnered over 50 million views and opened her up to a whole new audience. Her fan base continued to grow when she shared heartfelt messages and Jell-O salad recipes from her back porch during the pandemic, and assured people that “everything’s gonna be alright.” Her relatability makes everyone feel as if she’s talking directly to them!
Now after 22 years in comedy, Leanne is embarking on her 100-city Big Panty Tour across the U.S. with Outback Concerts. Now that her children are grown, Leanne is so grateful to have this opportunity at this time in her life. And to top it all off, she’s got a new grandbaby….SO YUMMY!
