Review for Country Cool Comedy:
Country Cool Comedy is a laugh out loud comedy show that leaves you wanting more. Trish Suhr, Leanne Morgan and Karen Mills are the Designing Women of Stand Up. They are all headlining comedians who deliver knockout performances. They’ll take you on a ride through all of life’s ups and downs and it will keep you laughing at yourself as you relate to their experiences. These ladies all have southern roots but their comedy has a universal appeal that everyone can enjoy. Trish, Leanne and Karen are close friends who have traveled the country together and at every stop they delight audiences, eat at Ruby Tuesdays and shop TJ Maxx. It’s a show you don’t want to miss, so bring your “tribe” for a hilarious night out.
Trish Suhr is the definition of a multitasker. She’s a nationally touring comedian, host of Daily Draw on the Game Show Network, co-host of Pop Talk on Air with Ross Mathews as well as being a spokesperson for Bed Bath and Beyond. Trish has also partnered with Pledge, Breathe Right, Bissell and numerous other brands. As “The Yard Sale Diva,” Trish appeared in over 200 episodes of the Emmy winning makeover show “Clean House” where she helped families across America clean, declutter and get organized. Trish has delivered her comedic take on life on numerous television shows including Good Morning America, Good Day LA, Good Day NY, and The Ricki Lake Show as well as commentary on CMT, E!, Lifetime & Hollywood Today Live. A native of Kentucky, this Emmy winner and social media influencer, now lives in Los Angeles where she uses her southern sensibilities to navigate the big city. Trish puts the “southern” in Southern California.
Leanne Morgan - One of the great things about stand-up comedy is the widely varied circumstances under which people get started. Leanne was raised on a farm in rural Tennessee and after graduating from college, getting married and starting a family, her husband moved her to the foot of the Appalachian Mountains. To earn extra money, Leanne started doing jewelry shows in people’s homes. Suddenly her calendar was booked solid, not for the jewelry, but because she was so funny. Her hilarious storytelling has taken her to Theaters and Performing Arts Centers across the country, landed her on numerous TV shows and gotten her development deals with ABC and Warner Brothers. Her comedy special, “So Yummy” is currently streaming on VidAngel. Her videos on Dry Bar Comedy have surpassed 30 million views and she can be heard daily on Sirius / XM Comedy Channels. Leanne recently released a podcast called “Sweaty and Pissed... Menopause and More.” And to think, it all started with jewelry.
Karen Mills has spent a lifetime entertaining. First as a point guard, “Little Mills” was always a crowd favorite. She started playing basketball in the 3rd grade and eventually earned a full scholarship to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. In 1981, she led the nation in assists and became the first Division 1, first team All American in UT-Chattanooga’s history.
Karen has been a nationally touring comedian for 25 years. She can be heard daily on Sirius / XM Comedy Channels and her new comedy special “Pink Pants” was just released on Dry Bar Comedy. Karen looks for the funny in every situation. Even ovarian cancer couldn’t stop her from turning pain into punchlines and in 2016, she presented her talk “Cancer is a Laughing Matter” at TEDxChattanooga. Karen recently performed at The Grand Ole Opry for their annual “Opry Goes Pink” alongside Carrie Underwood as well as being featured on Robin Robert’s “Thriver Thursday.”
