Leonard Robinson grew up, for the most part, in the small town of Danbury, Connecticut and the big town of Tokyo, Japan. Throughout his travels, domestic and abroad, one thing always remained the same: he was usually the only black kid around for miles. Too small to fight bullies, he learned how to be funny. Comedy became his way of surviving. Even now, with a black belt in Judo, comedy is still his weapon of choice. Leonard found comedic inspiration in everything growing up, including Monty Python’s Flying Circus, In Living Color, and his mother’s home based business selling Black Santas in a predominantly white cul-de-sac.
As a stand-up comedian, Leonard has performed all across the U.S. and was a participant in the NBC Stand-Up for Diversity Showcase. His multi-hyphenate background has landed him freelance writing jobs on such shows as MTV’s Wild N’ Out, Short Circuitz and Ridiculousness. He regularly writes and performs sketch at the Groundlings and Upright Citizen’s Brigade and has participated in the CBS Diversity Sketch Comedy Showcase. His internet video “Drink” starring hip-hop star Lil Jon and featuring LMFAO has reached over 5 million views on YouTube alone.
