Karen Mills is a breath of fresh air. Her humor is smart, funny, and original. No one can help you “get your laugh on” better than she can. She’s been compared to such greats as Bill Cosby, Ellen Degeneres, and Jerry Seinfeld. Her comedy is clean, clever and relatable – she finds the funny in everyday life. A native of Tennessee, this southern girl makes one thing clear, “I am NOT a southern belle, unless I need to be.”
Leanne is married to an “conservative republican” with three children. Her comedy focuses on her children who are always first priority. Being a mother of three young children in rural Appalachia did not allow for many traveling dates in her early career. Her first public attempt at standup comedy was to emcee at a local variety show for a men’s civic club. This two-night stand led to many appearances in local East Tennessee coffee houses and scores of regional corporate events.
