“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.
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 sold out solo shows at the Wales Millennium Centre (Ffresh) and Cardiff Glee, the latter being broadcast on Made In Cardiff Television.
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.
More recently Leroy's landed a key cast role in Tourist Trap, a new BBC sitcom about the Welsh Tourist Board, starring Sally Phillips. He's also secured a second comedy commission, Three Dads, for BBC Radio Wales, and later in the year can be seen as a guest on Sofie Hagen's new series 'Sofie's Sex Stories' for Comedy Central.
