Leo Reich, queer comedian/writer and sardonically self-referential member of Gen-Z, sits down for a conversation about not being funny, self-promotion, and straight people.
When this was released, Leo had just closed his solo show LITERALLY…WHO CARES Off-Broadway.
Leo Reich is a comedian and writer – his smash debut show Literally Who Cares?! was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Dave Comedy Awards 2022 and culminated in a sold out show at EartH Hackney. He recently opened for Simon Amstell on his latest UK tour and previously opened for Cat Cohen on tour. His TV appearances include Friday Night Live (Channel 4), Late Night Mash (Dave), Comedy Central Live (Comedy Central) and Jonathan Ross Comedy Club (ITV). He has written two episodes for the upcoming series Entitled airing on Showtime and Channel 4, and is currently working on various scripted projects.
On The Come Up, host Matt Rodin sits with creative people to find out where they’re at, today, in the journey of becoming who they are. What unfolds are often inspiring, transcendental, and candid conversations about the reality of being a growing artist.
Matt believes that love is who we are. He taps into people’s light so that we can form deeper connections with ourselves and one another. He’s a queer maker of music, media, characters, and campfires. As an actor, Matt recently starred in Hedwig and the Angry Inch at Milwaukee Rep, and the upcoming musical film BEAU. In 2020, he released his first live solo album, Matt Rodin: Live at Home. Matt has also worked as a content producer and consultant for The Tony Awards, The Smithsonian Institute, SoulCycle, Hamilton, Cynthia Erivo, Ingrid Michaelson, Playbill, Broadway.com, Dear Evan Hansen, Write Out Loud, and more.
