Grandma Lee electrifies the stage from the moment she takes the mic, till she finishes in a Blaze of Glory. This 79, almost 80 year old comedian gained national exposure when she was a finalist of season 4 of America's Got Talent. She is no stranger to competition, she was featured on Season 2 of Last Comic Standing, and was a 2 time winner of USA World Showcase Comedy Division at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

She's a Maxine card they would have to keep behind the counter at Hallmark.
Grandma Lee is a living cartoon with the same appeal as the grumpy greeting card lady. We like the whole idea of her, even if it ends up being funnier than an hour of her jokes.
A generic line like "Some packages can't be stimulated, and that's a (expletive) fact" is just funnier when it comes from an old lady with a bad attitude and a dirty mouth.
The Florida comedian known offstage as Lee Strong is a longtime working comic, but she achieved some celebrity after making last year's Top 10 on "America's Got Talent."
TV audiences rooted for the (now) 76-year-old with the hang-dog face and pageboy bob cut. Paying customers are in for a twist: The first words out of her mouth are a blistering blue streak about all the ways she'd like to do that young feller who opens the show, Carmen Vallone.
A third layer of potential for Grandma is how she blends right in with the slot duffers smoking up the Palace Station nickel machines on a weeknight. She's one of their own. Opening act Vallone stands out in a white tie that shouts, "I'm a comedian." But when he introduces Lee and she rises from the back booth, it's as if she's been hiding in plain sight
