Hannah is quite a “Road Dog” (cool industry term). While she lives in Nashville, she is often driving down the interstate heading to her next gig.

Some of the clubs she’s performed at recently include The Laughing Skull and The Punchline in Atlanta, The Comedy Attic in Bloomington, IN, The Loony Bin in Little Rock AR and Wichita KS, various Comedy Zones across the south east, The Seaside REP Theater in Florida, The Improv in Syracuse NY and Epic Comedy in Huntsville AL.
