Comedy On Tour: Ali Siddiq, Leanne Morgan & More Gear Up For Spring Tours

Comedy On Tour, presented by 800 Pound Gorilla News, is THE weekly editorial piece to find all the latest and greatest comedy tours you need to know about and get tickets to. This week's lineup features the most fantastic comics in the game: Leanne Morgan, Ali Siddiq, Stavros Halkias, Heather McMahan & Pauly Shore. Let's dive in!

Leanne Morgan: Just Getting Started

The tour’s name was inspired by Leanne Morgan’s career which started serendipitously 22 years ago when the mother of three realized her calling was in making people laugh.  At midlife, Leanne is truly just getting started and hopes that she can inspire others to feel the same. It’s never too late to start something that you love!


The comedian’s unique brand of comedy is grounded in her relatability and her no holds barred descriptions of motherhood (i.e.; What to do when puberty turns your children into monsters), dieting (i.e.; When it’s almost summer and you don’t have a bikini body), and marriage (i.e.; Two things that make a man happy), etc. all delivered with her sweet Southern charm.


“I named my second tour “Just Getting Started” because I’m a 50-something mother and grandmother that’s having the time of my life!  This is a dream come true! I truly feel like I am in the prime of my life. I’ve had the honor to travel to 100 cities across this great country performing in front of my fans who feel like my best friends. I’ll be sharing more stories of my real life, my family and my experiences and I hope people will still come away from this new hour saying, “this is my life- is Leanne spying on me??’” says Morgan.
