Lea is a stand up comedian. Her/his act involves telling jokes, which (Wry), which contrasts ideas and expressions (Wity) and which offend (downright rude). Along with telling jokes, Lea plays Jazz and Blues songs, in sudden strong bursts of emotional play (gusty). The act is totally in your face (it's loud, offensive, and shocking. Unlike anything you'd expect from a stand up comedian.)

:D
