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. 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. You can hear her on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio.
Directed by Quentin Lee. Produced by Koji Sakai (Dwayne Perkins’ Take Note & Comedy InvAsian) and Quentin Lee (Comedy InvAsian). Executive Producer: Anne Etue.
