Born in Sweden, raised in L.A., Leif began his comedy career over 20 years ago at the world famous Comedy Store in Hollywood. He as since traveled north America working clubs, corporate functions and colleges coast to coast, performing in cities and towns from Las Vegas to Moose Jaw (no kidding).
On a “road gig” in Caldwell Idaho he met his ex-wife to be. Seeking his fortune in show business Leif moved from Hollywood to Idaho, because there he reasoned, even the potatoes are famous.
Leif who started off in comedy as a carefree bachelor is now the proud father of two, and ex husband of one, (and people ask where do you get your material?)

In addition, Leif’s performances are played regularly on XM and Sirius satellite radio.

Leif has a vast wealth of background from which to draw upon for material from his roots in Sweden, to growing up in L.A. and getting his start in Hollywood, to hitting middle age, marriage, divorce, and fatherhood!
