Film, TV & Theatre
Leanne is a comedy writer, actor and standup.
For one whole year 2012-2013 Leanne set out on a personal quest to abolish her risk averse nature by moving house every six weeks to live with strangers she'd found on Twitter. She also signed up to every adventure offered including a stint with the Hare Krishna's, internet dating, clown camp and ending up at a group masturbation session. Leanne's journey was documented through the Huffington Post and culminated in a sell-out one woman show at The Edinburgh Festival 2013.
Awards include: Funny Women Comedy Writing Award (winner TBA). Creative England with Baby Cow & Big Talk Comedy iShorts Finalist 2014 (writer/director). Official Selection at Cannes Film Festival 2013 (actor/writer). Guardian Pick of the Week June 2013 (writer/actor). BAFTA/Rocliffe New Writing Award Final Shortlist 2012 (writer).
Leanne is also a writer for The Telegraph and blogger for The Huffington Post.
Leanne writes and performs with Dude (Looks Like A Lady) with Henrietta and Jessica Ashworth. Their 2016 shows have reached the Quarter Finals of the Amused Moose Competition and the Semi Finals of Leicester Square Sketch Off. They won Best Newcomer at Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival.
