The Brew HaHa Comedy Club at cit Steam Brewery Presents : Leighann Lord seen on Comedy Central

with Paul Gregory and John Romanoff

Leighann Lord's stand-up comedy show is smart, upscale, and engaging with topics including current events, politics, family, marriage and more. Audiences Say:
“She is funny and sophisticated.”
“One who teaches while making jokes.”

“A wonderful combination of beauty, class, grace and goofiness.”
She is so sly and funny. Sharp as a laser and quick to a punch. Every joke is handmade with her own brilliance and slant on life.

Smart, sexy, savvy, and funny, Leighann Lord’s “heads up humor” is stand-up comedy at it’s finest. Inspired by the brilliance of George Carlin, the smooth jazz style of Franklyn Ajaye, and the elegance of Rita Rudner, Leighann has crafted her own unique brand of Thinking Cap Comedy. It’s no wonder she received the NYC Black Comedy Award for “The Most Thought Provoking Black Female Comic.” And for two consecutive years, Leighann was Harlem Week’s official comedian. (The only other comedian in Harlem Week’s history to earn that distinction was Richard Pryor.)

Paul Gregory

Paul Gregory is a 35 year-old writer and stand-up comedian, originally from Hightstown, NJ. He recently began development of a production company in which he will write, direct, edit, and produce a dramatic web series to be released in 2018. He can also be seen performing his own stand-up comedy act at various comedy clubs and festivals throughout the country.

John Romanoff

ohn Romanoff is a comic so natural, so rotund big and burley both on and off the stage. He commands audience attention and response and deserves yours too. You would think that comedy ran in his family but when you look at John you’ll realize that nothing ever ran in his family…..Ever.

John has appeared on NBC TV, FOX TV and also on AXS TV’S Gotham Comedy Live. John has also opened for such talents as Andrew "Dice" Clay, Jim Jefferies, Nick DiPaolo, Bo Burnham and the late great Patrice O'Neal. If you were to ask any of these national headliners, except Patrice of course, about John, anyone of them would almost certainly say….Who?

Audiences won't soon forget, Romanoff's high-energy, cutting, unique, and beat you over the head hilarity. Romanoff’s view on everything from family, to pop culture, and, of course his passion for Zumba brings the audience into his self-deprecating, comedic assault on funny.

John started his illustrious comedy career when he won the Young Authors Award in the sixth grade for writing a scary story. Then, he was an alternate in the soap box derby. John was the grand prize winner in the “Funniest Comic in New England” Contest, taking home the big tamale in the 2012 stand-up comedy competition. Two hundred and fifty comics competed from Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut. The year before Romanoff garnered a fourth place finish as a finalist in the same contest showing his comedy maturation, growth, and thick skin (very thick skin as a matter of fact). John is a very proud Organ Donor.
