“A Cardiff Boy taking the comedy scene by storm. Strong stage presence, great gags and something different from the ordinary” - The Glee Club Cardiff
Since his debut in 2011, Cardiff based comedian Leroy Brito has developed a reputation as one of the rising stars of Welsh Comedy.
Leroy was recently seen in the mockumentary Tourist Trap, starring Sally Phillips, on BBC Wales and BBC iPlayer. He played key cast member, 'Rob in Marketing'. Series 2 of Tourist Trap will be returning next year. In October 2018 Leroy's solo stand-up radio show 3 Dads was broadcast on BBC Radio Wales and later in the year he's a guest on Sofie Hagen's new series Sofie's Sex Stories for Comedy Central.
A regular on the comedy circuit throughout the UK, in 2016 Leroy had a successful stint performing across the Atlantic in New York City. This was quickly followed with further success at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017. Back home in Cardiff he’s had two sold out, solo stand-up shows at the Wales Millennium Centre (Ffresh) , Butetown's Finest in 2017 and 3 Dads in 2018.
Also in demand as a writer, Leroy authored the documentary Talking Butetown, which explored the curious dialect spoken in the council estate tower blocks of multicultural Butetown, where he grew up. The documentary formed part of the #towerlives2016 series in collaboration with BBC Wales, 1XTRA, Radio 2 and News Online.
In 2017 Leroy wrote and starred in The Great Welsh Brexit Roadtrip for BBC Radio Wales. Mixing improvisation with scripted comedy enabled him to finally put his Politics degree to use. He's also written and starred in numerous comedy sketch for BBC Seth, with one sketch about the Severn Bridge attracting over 2.4 million views.
