Leighann's stand-up is frequently heard onXM-Sirius Satellite Radio and appeard on many stand-up comedy shows including Girls Night Out (Lifetime), The Original Def Comedy All Star Jam (HBO), Premium Blend (Comedy Central), The World Stands Up (Comedy Central), Comics Unleased with Byron Allen, VH1's 40 Most Shocking Celebrity Hair Moments, The View (ABC), Comic Quickies (SiTV), HA! Comedy (Gospel Music Channel) and We Got Next! (ASPIRE TV).
