The ultimate observer, Ismo is able to make people see familiar things anew through his unique perspective.
Ismo made his US debut in 2014 at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood where he won the title of “The Funniest Person in the World” and now performs to sold-out crowds around the world including US, Canada, Australia, Mexico and Europe. He has also gained attention at the biggest comedy festivals including Just For Laughs (Montreal, Toronto and Bermuda), Edinburgh Fringe and the New Zealand International Comedy Festival.
Ismo can be seen regularly performing in LA clubs and headlining across the US.
Last year, he made his debut appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden with an overwhelming response. The comedian also appeared this past summer on a couple episodes of NBC’s Bring The Funny. He has also teamed up with Merriam Webster to release a digital comedy series of videos roasting the English language. He’s also appeared on NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly and became the first Finnish comedian to perform on Conan in 2018. His clip from Conan has become one of the most viewed late-night sets with over 72 million views.
'Leikola is the Scandinavian Mitch Hedberg; an oddball with a few extra twists. ★★★★' The List (UK)
'The wonderful Finn Ismo Leikola bringing the house down with his daft ”foreigner abroad” shtick. He’s got an entertaining off-kilter mind and a gift for comic misunderstanding which probably made him the hit of the night.' Chortle (UK)
