Country Cool humor coming to Comedy Catch
A trio of regional comedians with Southern roots will co-headline the Country Cool Comedy show set for the Comedy Catch this weekend.
Trish Suhr, Leanne Morgan and Karen Mills have been friends for more than a decade and “have stood in it, walked through it and come out the other side laughing.”
Whether going through cancer, becoming an empty- nester or talking each other off the hormonal ledge, they find the humor in everyday life. It’s comedy for better or worse and it’ll keep you laughing as you relate to their experiences. Their wide range of topics gives them a universal appeal that anyone can enjoy.
“We are very good friends and laugh all the time off the stage,” says Mills. “Trish is high-energy and Leanne is more of a storyteller with a slower sort of pace. I am in between.”
Each will do a 20- to 25-minute set and then the three are onstage together for another 15 or 20 minutes, she said.
Suhr is a native of Kentucky who now lives in Los Angeles. She uses her Southern roots to help her navigate the big city and knows what it takes to stay in the game — spin classes, clean eating and Spanx! According to Suhr, when the Spanx come off “it’s like opening a can of biscuits.”
You might know her as “The Yard Sale Diva.” This Emmy-winning co-host of “Clean House” appeared in more than 200 episodes, helping families across America clear clutter, live clean and get organized.
Suhr has appeared on “Good Morning, America,” “The Ricki Lake Show,” “The Marie Osmond Show,” “Good Day LA” and “Good Day NY.”
Morgan is a naturally funny storyteller who gives an honest look at suburban life and the challenges of keeping her hus- band happy while juggling kids, dogs and cheerleading camp at the same time she’s racing to get her hair highlighted. She will take you on a hilarious walk through motherhood and beyond as she finds com- edy in the chaos.
Morgan ’s fun - ny- but- honest point of view has earned her spots on the “Dr. Phil Show” as part of his advice panel. She’s also worked with Paula Deen in live theater shows as well as numerous appearances on her cooking shows. Morgan was chosen by the women of “The View” as one of their most hilarious housewives and she was a finalist on Nick at Nite’s “Funniest Mom in America.” She can be heard regularly on Sirius/XM comedy channels.
Mills finds humor in the realities of life. Her smart, funny, keen observations will keep you in stitches. Even ovarian cancer couldn’t stop her from turning pain into punchlines and, in 2016, she was chosen to give her talk, “Cancer is a Laughing Matter,” at TEDxChattanooga. Now cancer- free, Mills brings a fast- paced comedy style that men and women love.
Mills has been a nationally touring comedian for 25 years. She’s worked clubs, colleges and theaters across the country and can be heard daily on Sirius/XM comedy channels. Additionally, she has appeared on ABC, Great American Country and Season 12 of “America’s Got Talent.”
She was a Division 1, first-team all-American basketball player at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and the first woman inducted into its Basketball Hall of Fame.
