Join us for the hilarious antics of comedy group Country Cool! Trish Suhr, Karen Mills and Leanne Morgan, all headlining comedians, have southern roots but are well-traveled diverse, razor-sharp and savvy.
Emmy Award winner Trish Suhr puts a modern spin on keeping it real. The star of Style Network’s long running “Clean House,” she uses her southern sensibilities to navigate the city and knows what it takes to stay in the game. Trish’s “sass and bourbon” approach to life has landed her on top television shows, including Good Morning America, The New Ricki Lake Show, The Marie Osmond Show, Good Day LA, Good Day NY, as well as a variety of programs for CMT, VH1, E!, Style Network and Lifetime Networks.
Chosen by ABC’s The View as one of “the most hilarious housewives,” Leanne Morgan exudes southern charm. She is a naturally funny storyteller who will take you on a hilarious walk through motherhood and beyond as she finds comedy amidst the chaos. Leanne’s funny but honest point of view has earned her spots on The Dr. Phil Show as part of his “advice panel.” Leanne was a finalist on Nick at Nite’s Funniest Mom in America and is heard regularly on Sirius XM.
Karen Mills has a straight-forward approach to the realities of life. Her smart, funny and keen observations will keep you laughing at yourself as you relate to her experiences. Even ovarian cancer couldn’t stop Karen from turning pain into punchlines. Karen has been a nationally touring comedian for 22 years. She’s worked clubs, colleges and theaters across the country and can be heard daily on SiriusXM Blue Collar Radio, Laugh USA, iHeart Radio and Pandora. Additionally, her stand up has been seen on FOX, ABC and GACtv.
All tickets include complimentary hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, and access to our live and silent auctions. VIP tickets include access to our pre-show VIP reception, which includes a drink ticket and hors d’oeuvres.
Laugh for the Cure generates hundreds of laughs and thousands of dollars for community grants and breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer. Since inception in 2002, Laugh for the Cure has raised over $1 million for Komen Charlotte. An estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to occur among women in the U.S. each year; your support will help us continue making a difference in the 13 counties we serve!
