Leanne Morgan


What’s Happening?

The Mrs. Maisel of Appalachia is embarking on her very first national headlining stand-up tour — the Big Panty Tour! Leanne Morgan has had a storied career of comedy and being a stay-at-home mother of three (now with a grandbaby in the mix!) and combines her Southern charm and hilarious storytelling to connect with audiences like a best friend you didn’t know you had.

Growing up in rural Tennessee, she always knew she’d end up in show business one way or another. After having her first baby, she was in absolute heaven, but she still had a tug in her heart to do stand-up. Selling jewelry at home parties turned to talking about breastfeeding, hemorrhoids and being a mama.  Once she made a woman pee on the couch laughing, knew she had it. More and more women told her she needed to do stand up and it gave it the courage to go for it.

During her 22 years in comedy, she’s been on stage at the Montreal Comedy Festival and had 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. Clips from her Dry Bar Comedy Special “So Yummy” garnered over 50 million views and opened her up to a whole new audience. She hosts the popular podcast Sweaty and Pissed...Menopause and More.
