This weekend’s shows feature Leighann Lord, who has appeared on ABC’s “The View,” HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam,” Comedy Central’s “Tough Crowd w/ Colin Quinn” and “Premium Blend.” Other comics include Chris Mata, Allison Castillo & Ophira Eisenberg who have all appeared on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend.” The special guest is Tommy Savvitt from USO tour.

Leighann Lord

Unabashedly smart and wickedly funny, Leighann’s on-stage charisma, topics and punch lines get you laughing and thinking at the same time!  She’s appeared on numerous stand-up comedy shows, including NBC’s “Comedy Showcase,” the Metro Channel’s “New Joke City” with Robert Klein, Lifetime’s “Girls’ Night Out,” VH-1’s Stand Up Spotlight, HBO’s “Def Comedy All-Star Jam,” Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn,” and ABC’s “The View.”

Leighann has performed internationally in Trinidad’s International Laugh Festival and in the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. In England she appeared on the BBC’s wildly popular television show “Blouse and Skirt.” In The Netherlands, she performed on the late-night talk show Raymann is Laat. Leighann also entertained U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia during Operation Enduring Freedom.

For two consecutive years, Leighann was named the official comedian for Harlem Week. (The only other comedian in Harlem Week’s history to earn that distinction is Richard Pryor.) She also won The New York City Black Comedy Award for the Most Thought-Provoking Female Comic.

On the big screen, Leighann appeared in the George Lucas film “Radioland Murders.” On the small screen she has appeared on a host of shows including “The Charlie Rose Show,” “Chat Zone” on HBO, “Comics in the Round” on Comedy Central and was a commentator on PBS’s “That Money Show.” She can also be spotted in a Lean Cuisine commercial.

Leighann’s theatre work includes Raft of the Medusa at NJ Rep; Theatre Dreams and The Punch and Judy Show at The Creative Acting Company. Her one woman show, The Full Swanky, debuted in The Riant Theatre Women’s Play Festival, where it was nominated for Best Play and Best Director. Leighann won the festival award for Best Actress. She was also nominated for an AUDELCO Recognition Award for Best Solo Performance.
