In his 13 years on stage, Vittorio has tried to show audiences a new way to see the world - slightly skewed, a bit quirky and governed by cartoon law. Hailing from the streets of Welkom, this Italian-born stallion left home and successfully navigated the many pitfalls of a world with shoes and electricity in his travels around SA. From shoe sizes to the inner workings of the Roman Army; from heavy metal to relationship jargon, this comic takes the world, turns it sideways and gets us to see it as it could be if we'd all just reach behind our backs, pull out a cream pie, throw it and learn to laugh.



Vittorio Leonardi began his stand-up career 15 years ago. Added to that, he is also an accomplished improvised comedian having performed with the Joe Parker’s Improv Express and The Starship Improvise for over 9 years.

He has also worked in the animations industry with Ron Major of Major Productions as a voice artist, giving voice and personality to an animated character.

Vittorio has been the resident MC at various comedy nights across Gauteng including Tanz Café – Bryanston; News Café – Faerie Glen and The Venetian Show Bar in The Marco Polo Casino.



In 2008, Vittorio was awarded two Comedy Industry Awards presented by Acappella Productions and voted on by fellow comedians. He received The Trusty Steed Award for most reliable comedian and The Scribe Award for highest turnover of new material. He was also nominated for Comic of the Year 2011 at the Comics Choice Awards.
