Leo Kearse

Scottish Comedian of the Year Leo Kearse is part of the new wave of raw, bold, American-inspired comedians taking the big UK clubs by storm – and abroad, with 2018 taking in Adelaide, Melbourne, Ibiza, Turkey, Holland, Cyprus, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Belarus and Denmark.

He’s written for BBC comedy including the Mash Report, Breaking The News and a Live At The Apollo appearance.

Leo also acts, playing Mick Fleetwood in a forthcoming ITV drama about Fleetwood Mac. He’s been on ITV Dinner Date (and won), Al Jazeera and BBC2’s Funny Business. His comedy shorts include a Star Wars spoof video that’s had half a million views, and a “Stand up on the tube” stunt that got him in the Mail and Metro and was shared on Ladbible. He has appeared in adverts for Dulcolax and Whiskas and was a backing dancer for a David Icke conspiracy theory lecture at Wembley Arena!

As well as stand up comedy, he also performs at festivals and cabaret nights as the improvising Pun-Man (Leo is the 2015 UK Pun Champion) appearing on Britain’s Got Talent.

Leo is also the co-creator of sellout show Hate ‘n’ Live, which has improvising comedians hating on audience suggestions – Whose Line Is It Anyway? meets Room 101.

He is a straight up absolutely hilarious comedian and as a gigantic force of Celtic nature he’s very much The New Billy Connolly!

“He churns out the gags, provoking a steady stream of laughs in his tight set, which strides purposefully between topics with muscular, efficient lines on each. Kearse was both an audience and judges’ favourite, and the deserved winner” Chortle

“Overflowing with energy…inspired riffing…a deserved winner”  This Is Essex

“A giant of the art” Chortle
