Leonard Ouzts is one of the most popular and most televised young comedians on the circuit today. Originally hailing from Chesapeke, VA, his work has been featured on every platform from HBO to MTV to Comedy Central. In addition to stand-up, Leonard has established himself as a strong and uniquely savvy actor, with appearances in Netflix’s Emmy Award-winning series “Master of None” and NBC’S “Abbey’s,” as well as feature films “Standing Up and Falling Down” (with Billy Crystal and Ben Schwartz), “Like Father” (with Kelsey Grammar and Kristen Bell), and “Set It Up” (with Lucy Liu). He also co-starred in the viral “3 Brothers Moving” commercial for Tristate. Leonard was a "New Face” at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal in 2015, and made his Late Night debut on “Conan” in 2016 and received a standing ovation. His debut comedy special, “The Big Joker,” is currently available to stream on 85 South’s YouTube. When he’s not on the road or on set, Leonard hosts “Young, Black, and Funny,” a live comedy show series he co-founded with friend and fellow comedian Vincent Bryant.
