He's had three sellout solo Edinburgh shows and is also the co-creator of sellout show Hate 'n' Live, which has top comedians hate on audience suggestions. Leo has toured internationally, performing on four continents.
Leo is the 2015 Dave TV UK Pun Champion (but doesn't do puns in his standup set, only as alter-ego cabaret act Pun-Man). He's a regular on TalkSPORT Extra Time and Fubar Radio's Mark Dolan Eats The News. He's also appeared on ITV's Dinner Date, Britain's Got Talent, BBC2's Funny Business and Al Jazeera, and had viral YouTube hits featured in the Metro and Daily Mail.
