Leon Blanda is a human person who was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, but spent most of his formative years in a small town that does not have a name or appear on any map in existence.
There, he learned karate from a book, how to play guitar from a different book, and the importance of having a sense of humor about growing up in a village so small that it isn’t even viewable from the special, spy satellites orbiting the Earth - and those things can read your credit card number from space!
Currently, he hosts Comedy Gold at House of Blues New Orleans every Wednesday, and releases a podcast on iTunes and other fine podcast sources every Monday called “That’s Gonna Leave A Mark! with Leon Blanda”.
His festival appearances include: Hell Yes Fest, Red Clay Comedy Fest, Memphis Comedy Fest, Orlando Indie Comedy Fest, and Trill Fest.
He was featured on the Mental Health Channel’s web-series “Cracking Up: Nola”, and enjoys writing and producing his own stand-up comedy almost as much as he hates writing and producing his own bio!?! What a twist!
Laura Meagher is a stand-up comedian and dog lover from New Orleans. She has performed at Hell Yes Fest in New Orleans and all across the country, but her greatest credit was getting into a public argument with the band Bowling for Soup and winning. She's mostly been coasting since then. Follow her on Snapchat at @loudadanger and watch her openly mock people in airports around the world. She's excited to meet you!
