“One of Funniest People You Should Know About…. Her Twitter feed is equal parts intentionally bad puns, Machiavelli references and language that would make a teamster blush tomato red” - Triple J Magazine

“The Brilliant Leah Bonnema…” - Village Voice
“Leah Bonnema is the most talented comedian I've ever worked with. She is completely honest in her material and her delivery pulling directly from her everyday life and talking with the audience, making us feel at home with her and relaxed in the palm of her hand.”-Karen Sommers Theater Director and Media Arts Manager at The Art of Elysium, Los Angeles
“Leah Bonnema's stage presence is a force to be reckoned with. Her personal storytelling coupled with her rapid fire wit is unprecedented. This is one comic who truly commands your attention and dominates the stage!” -Blondelogicblog.com
“Leah Bonnema, founder and host of Rosie the Irreverent, a comedy line-up showcasing hilarious female comics, has done yearly benefits for Pets for Life NYC, an animal surrender prevention program. Leah's benefits have allowed Pets for Life NYC to assist hundreds of animals in need. She is a great asset to Pets for Life NYC as both a volunteer with the program and as the warm and welcoming host of these wonderful comedy benefits. Leah is such a fabulous comedian! And if that is not enough, we love Leah even more because she is the proud mom of two rescued guinea pigs, Tupac and R2D2." -Jenny Olsen Pets for Life NYC Coordinator The Humane Society of the United States
“The first female comic, Leah Bonnema, kicked off her set with the recent passing of Utah's Kill The Miscarriers bill. Her least controversial bit was about telling a kid in PetCo to "Shut the fuck up!" She's only the second comic I've ever seen, after Sarah Silverman, to pull off abortion jokes and I don't know that I've seen anyone do a suicide joke and make it the perfect button to their set.” -117-Hudson.com
“By far the best performance was given by the beautiful Leah Bonnema. The actress used her onstage powers to shine and is absolutely a joy to watch." -Jade Estaban Estrada, Arts and Entertainment Columnist for the Villager-New York and The Downtown Express New York
