The 'Funniest comedian in the world' has some unFINished business in Auckland.
Completely sold out at the fest in 2016, now too big for The Classic, Ismo Leikola is back in 2017 for one night only at the mighty Rangatira Theatre at Q on Queen St.

Ismo Leikola is very big in Finland. About as big as a comedian can get.
He has performed comedy in his home country, Finland, and Northern Europe. He plays major arenas and has his own TV show.

Then, in 2014, he travelled to the USA and took part in the Laugh Factory's global competition and won the title of ’Funniest Comedian in the World’. He won by a landslide thus claiming the title and opening the door to USA audiences.

Ismo’s style proved very popular with New Zealand audiences in 2016 as it is based on his unique observations of the world from a country that is very similar to our own.

Since he was here last year, Ismo has now settled in to Los Angeles where he is starting to make a big impression, so this may be our last chance to catch him for a few years.

“Leikola is the Scandinavian Mitch Hedburg; an oddball with a few extra twists.” - The List
“For a man speaking his second language, Ismo Leikola is uncannily incisive” - The Independent
“He is pretty much the master of this comedy technique.” - The Scotsman
