Who is Leanne Morgan of Dry Bar Comedy?

This side-splitting mom came into the world of comedy from unlikely origins. Comedian Leanne Morgan has been referred to as the “funniest woman in the South,” and has referred to herself as the “Mrs. Maisel of Appalachia” due to the jokester’s swift and unexpected rise in popularity. 

Morgan was raised on the border of Tennessee and Kentucky. She recalls seeing country music stars out and aboutdue to her close proximity to the famed country hub of Nashville, TNand knew she wanted to be a star from a young age.

The tall, blonde comedian attended the University of Tennessee before moving, with her husband, to the Appalachian Mountains and starting a family. Morgan started selling jewelry for a little extra cash, and her friends soon discovered that she was absolutely hilarious.

Before Leanne knew it, she was being booked to do stand-up at her friends’ parties. Not too long afterat the age of 32 and with three kidsLeanne officially entered the world of stand-up comedy, going on to receive her own Netflix special, open for Jeff Foxworthy, and sell out her own shows.

Leanne Morgan, The Southern Mom Who Will Leave You Laughing

Leanne Morgan’s humor comes from her precious experience as a mom and a Gen X woman. Influenced heavily by Jim Gaffigan and the casts of Saturday Night Live, Leanne applies her expert wit and a heaping spoonful of sweet Southern charm to her musings on motherhood, menopause, growing up in the ‘80s, and more. 

Her bits cover everything from failing at Weight Watchers to “concerts with old people" to being too tired for intimacy, as well as every phase of life her family has passed through, from pooping after childbirth to having grandkids and being the mother-of-the-groom. Her relatable comedy has struck a chord, especially with mothers and women of her generation and beyond. Leanne wants moms and older women to know they still have life ahead of them, and they still have so much to offer. 

The Tennessee native is careful to keep her material clean and free of divisive political content, creating a place of unity and laughter for women and men of all walks of life, who look back fondly on the ‘80s and need a little vacation from their kids. Leanne employs expressive hand gestures, as well as a hefty dose of self-mockery, to drive her comedy home and comfort the audience about the highs and lows of parenthood and aging.
