In New York City, she wrote, performed, and produced her critically acclaimed one-woman show, produced and hosted a comedy open mic for over 7 years, and produced and hosted a weekly stand-up show.In 2015 Leanne moved to California where she continued producing shows, opened an online store, and co-hosted a podcast. While it was fun, she missed the opportunities and connections that New York offered her as an aspiring artist. Because everything in California is so spread out, Leanne found herself spending more time on the freeway than on stage.In August 2019 BC (before COVID), she began using existing technologies to host an online open mic. This allowed her to spend more time honing her skills and less time struggling with time and money. After a few months, her regularly participating comedians suggested that she charge them for the service. It was then that she knew she was onto something.Leanne has earned a Master of Innovation & Entrepreneurship (MIE) degree at the University of California, Irvine. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
