From the moment pint-sized comedian Leah Mansfield takes the stage, audiences are as interested as they are impressed. Being the daughter of Native American hippie scientists and the second of seven siblings provides Leah with an endless well of anecdotal family stories.
Eager to rebel against her parents, Leah became devoutly religious and joined the Air Force immediately after graduating from the University of Washington. In a master stroke of irony, she became a Nuclear Weapons Launch Officer-where her job was to not press the red button and destroy the world.
After years of diligently not doing much of anything, Leah began her adventure into standup comedy. Her unique ability to couple a whirlwind of comedic energy with her original outlook on life has allowed Leah to travel across the country as a festival favorite, and feature for national headliners such as Tom Green, Jimmy Dore, and Eddie Ifft. Look for her at the 2016 Bridgetown Comedy Festival!
