BIOGRAPHY

A friend once asked me, "When you started performing comedy, did you step out of your comfort zone?" I thought for a second and realized,
"No. I stepped into it."

Leslie Battle is a Texas native who began her comedy career after an ‘uncivilized’ divorce.  She has performed since July 2011,on stages throughout the Midwest and beyond.

 

Her contest titles include Columbus (Ohio's) Funniest Person, WInner: Crackers Comedy Club Open Mic Contest in Indianapolis, IN and in 2019 she placed in the top 101 comics in the World Series of Comedy Main Event.

 

She began her Army career as an active duty medical laboratory technician (92B), a role she fulfilled for 13 years. After transferring to the Ohio National Guard, she went back to college, earned her bachelor's degree and earned a commission as a Communications Officer in 2006. During her military career, she was stationed in Ft Lewis, WA, Ft Knox, KY, Heidelberg, Germany and Camp Arifjan, Kuwait (to name a few). She retired in January 2015, after 26 total years of military service (13 active, 13 Ohio National Guard).

 

Mother of 3 young adults, her humor includes stories from her life as a soldier, mom, and divorcee’ as well as observations about American Pop Culture. Leslie offers a unique perspective and says things that other people think fairly regularly, but aren’t quite comfortable with saying.
