Josie Leavitt — Josie Leavitt is the matriarch of Vermont’s burgeoning standup comedy scene. In fact, were it not for her efforts, the state might not have a standup scene at all. The New York City transplant and Flying Pig Bookstore co-owner is not only one of the funniest people around; she’s a great teacher, too. Her comedy classes through FlynnArts in Burlington have churned out more talented local comics than we can count. A few of them now rank as members of Vermont’s longest-running standup crew, the Vermont Comedy Divas, which Leavitt founded.
