“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 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 he wrote and starred in The Great Welsh Brexit Roadtrip for BBC Radio Wales, mixing improvisation with scripted comedy enabled him to put his degree in Politics to use.
More recently Leroy's secured a new comedy commission, Three Dads, for BBC Wales, to be produced by Zipline Creatives later in 2018. He’s also filming a number of comedy shorts for BBC Online.
