After receiving his M.A. in Counseling/Psychology, Leo immediately put it use on stage. Show after show, he hilariously dissects personal and social relationships. A Chicago native , Leo quickly worked his way into major comedy clubs and colleges across the country. His delivery has been described as "smooth and deliberate," making observations bordering on "genius and insanity." No two shows are ever alike, as he’s always attacking the issues of the day and revealing personal anecdotes. Infusing stand-up w/storytelling, Leo captivates audiences of all demographics. Recently, Leo has appeared on "Comics Unleashed w/Byron Allen"; winner of the Uncle Clyde’s Comedy Competition; runner-up in the "San Francisco Stand-Up Comedy Competition;" a Finalist in the 2009 Stand-up for Diversity Competition; Laugh Factory regular; toured on "Shaved and Depraved Comedy Tour"; co-hosted MTV’s "Sports Blender;" and cut his acting chops in the webisode "Sorority Forever." He has also opened for such stars as Bill Burr, Mo’Nique and Mitch Fatel. So be sure to catch this rising star at a comedy club or movie theatre near you.
