Leanne Morgan To Release Debut Book "What In The World?!" This Fall

Comedian Leanne Morgan, a veteran of the comedy community known for her signature southern charm styled stand-up, has announced the release of her debut book What In The World?!: A Southern Woman's Guide to Laughing at Life's Unexpected Curveballs and Beautiful Blessings.

The news of her book follows the comic's rise in the past year since the release of her first Netflix special, I'm Every Woman, landing on Variety's 10 Comics to Watch for 2023, & her on-going sold out Just Getting Started tour that's hitting theaters & arenas across the country.

In the new book What In The World?!, the Tennessee native will bring readers inside her quest to find her voice after spending many years trying to figure out what that meant while establishing her name as a stand-up comeian. Along the way, we learn how she grew up as a butcher’s daughter, landed a husband with health insurance, honed her stand-up technique selling jewelry at house parties, embraced the glories of aging, and surrendered to the comfort of wearing big flesh-toned panties.

Equal parts warm and hilarious, this book is a must-read by one of comedy’s rising stars—reminding you that every time life leaves you asking “What in the world?!,” something good is bound to come out of it someday.

Morgan shared her excitement for writing this book & says "It’s filled with my stories about being a daughter, a wife, a mama and a dreamer. It’s the journey of finding my own voice, strength and faith through the good times and bad. If you believe in blessings in disguise and using laughter to get through it all, this book is for you."

Morgan's rise continues as she's next set to perform as part of this year's Netflix Is A Joke Fest & will be seen on the screen in the Amazon Prime feature, You’re Cordially Invited, starring alongside Will Ferrell and Reese Witherspoon, and directed/written by Nick Stoller.
