Leigh Qurban Good Effort

Leigh Qurban Good Effort

2015 Adelaide Comedian of the Year

2018 Kings of Comedy Comedian of the Year

As a kid we were told we could be whatever we wanted to be. Believe and you’ll achieve was the mantra. What rubbish! Haven’t achieved your dreams before your 25th birthday? Cool. Work a mundane job? Even better! There’s good effort, bad effort and times when you just need to say 'eff’ it'.

Leigh Qurban’s stand-up show takes you on a non-spiritual short car ride to discover just what it is in life we should be putting all that effort into.

Born and raised in Adelaide, Leigh Qurban commenced his stand-up comedy career in 2011 and quickly rose through the ranks featuring and hosting with his observational, relatable and, at times, quirky material around the country. In 2014 he was awarded the Adelaide Comedy Peer’s Choice Award and in the following year took out Adelaide Comedian of the Year. Described as an effective storyteller and a larrikin, Leigh has proven to be a crowd favorite to a broad audience and has supported the likes of Sam Simmons, Felicity Ward and Akmal Saleh. Leigh has also shown off his comedic acting talent in the widely popular The Sound Of Nazis and Worst Side Story whilst co-writing and staring in the outrageously silly cult hit The Wudidonga Arts Revue.

'★★★★' Fest Mag (UK)

'Leigh kills it. ★★★★'  Adelaide Advertiser
