Presented by Adrian Bohm as part of Perth Comedy Festival
The ultimate observer, Ismo is able to make people see familiar things anew through his unique perspective.
Ismo started his comedy career in 2002 in his home country of Finland; becoming one of the top performing comedians in the country today. There, Ismo wrote and starred in 2 seasons of his own sitcom, Ismo, and also filmed four specials from 2008 to 2016.
Ismo made his US debut in 2014 at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood where he won the title of “The Funniest Person in the World.” In 2015, he relocated to Los Angeles from Finland, and now performs to sold-out crowds around the world including the USA, Canada, Australia, Mexico and Europe. He has also gained attention at the biggest comedy festivals including Just For Laughs (Montreal, Toronto and Bermuda), Edinburgh Fringe and The New Zealand International Comedy Festival. He can be seen regularly performing in LA clubs and headlining across the US.
Last year, Ismo made his debut appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden with an overwhelming response. The comedian also appeared this past summer on a couple episodes of NBC’s Bring The Funny. He has also teamed up with Merriam Webster to release a digital comedy series of videos roasting the English language. He’s also appeared on NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly and became the first Finnish comedian to perform on Conan in 2018. Ismo’s clip from Conan has become one of the most viewed late-night sets with over 72 million views.
"Leikola is the Scandinavian Mitch Hedberg; an oddball with a few extra twists. 5 stars" - The List
"The wonderful Finn Ismo Leikola bringing the house down with his daft ”foreigner abroad” shtick. He’s got an entertaining off-kilter mind and a gift for comic misunderstanding which probably made him the hit of the night" - Chortle
