Backed by over 20 years of experience, Leslie is easily one of the funniest, most entertaining comediennes working today. Leslie has more than 30 television appearances that include Comedy Central, A&E's An Evening at the Improv, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

As a teenager Leslie lost her mother to cancer and father to alcoholism. Left to raise her younger siblings, she never lost her positive outlook. She went from food stamps to Star Search champion finalist, with $100,00 within her grasp. Devastated she did not take home the grand prize, it wasn't until years later that Leslie saw that God had bigger plans. Her dramatic story will motivate and inspire all.

Leslie left behind a promising acting career to create a better life for her children. In the classic fish-out-of-water tale, she moved from Hollywood to rural Ohio to live and work on her family's 100 year old farm. This only added material to her already hilarious routines.

Besides being a proud mother, Leslie is also a successful business woman. She co-owns Townsend Productions, a 15,000 sq ft recording facility in Celina, OH. She brings the same skills to business that has served her so well in life: letting go of ego, making the best of any situation, and good, old-fashioned hard work.
