Trenton, NJ (PRWEB) June 6, 2010
Leighann Lord is a Very Funny Lady. Smart, sexy, savvy, and funny, Leighann Lord’s "heads up humor" is stand-up comedy at it’s finest. Inspired by the brilliance of George Carlin, the smooth jazz style of Franklyn Ajaye, and the elegance of Rita Rudner, Leighann has crafted her own unique brand of Thinking Cap Comedy. It’s no wonder she received the NYC Black Comedy Award for "The Most Thought Provoking Black Female Comic." A New York City native who’s entertained around the world, Leighann Lord’s stand-up style is not urban; it’s urbane. She has performed for audiences in North America, Europe, the Carribean and for U.S. troops stationed in the Middle East during Operation Enduring Freedom. Leighann is a regular on the Fox News online show, The Strategy Room, where she gives her informed and funny take on politics, world news and current events. Her popular weekly humor column, Leighann Lord’s Comic Perspective is featured on StageTimeMagazine. She is also a frequent contributor to FoxNew.com’s Team Washington Blog and The Huffington Post.
