This fall, Southern Comedian Leanne Morgan returns to Pensacola for three Just Getting Started shows on Wednesday, September 20; Thursday, September 21; and Friday, September 22. All shows begin at 7 p.m. at the Pensacola Saenger Theatre.
Karen Mills opened for Leanne’s last Pensacola show and is still touring with her, but Laura Peek will open for the Pensacola show in September.
Laura Peek was selected to be a New Face at the prestigious 2022 Just For Laughs Festival and has been featured in Comedy Central’s Roast Battle as well as many prominent festivals such as Laughing Skull, Limestone, and the Nashville Comedy Festival.
Leanne’s comedy show is largely centered around her family and life in Tennessee.
According to her biography at www.leannemorgan.com, “To stay busy after having her first baby, Morgan started selling jewelry at home parties. She was supposed to talk about the jewelry but instead conversed about breastfeeding, hemorrhoids, and being a mama. The party guests thought that she was hilarious, and before she knew it, she was booked a year in advance.
The jewelry company saw what was happening and asked her to speak at their sales rallies. It was there that women started saying, “You need to do stand-up!” That gave Morgan the courage to really go for it! She finally had access to comedy clubs when her family moved to San Antonio in 2001, and her career in comedy quickly officially got underway.”
Morgan has millions of followers on social media and has sold out shows all over America. She has also been a guest on shows like The Kelly Clarkson Show and The View.
A Netflix special, “I’m Every Woman,” is now streaming, and her first book, What in the World?, is set to be published by Random House/Convergent, in August 2024.
