Comedy Show – Justin Leon

May 3, 7pm

Free comedy show in the Lounge. Tonight’s comedian is Justin Leon.

Justin Leon is a well-respected Kansas City Comic who has truly made a name for himself.  Justin has spent the last 11 years traveling across the country perfecting his stand-up comedy.  His unique style stems not from focusing on our differences but rather our commonalities; family, friends, relationships, parenthood and trending headlines. Justin’s remarkable perspective on life allows him to relate to, connect with and capture any crowd. From the moment he walks on stage, Justin’s likeability engages the audience as he expands their frame of thought with each laugh, leaving the audience laughing, reflecting and wanting more.

Justin Leon’s comedy translates both nationally and internationally allowing him to perform in the top comedy clubs in the U.S. and Canada. He has also been fortunate enough to recently return from the Middle East where he coheadlined the Red, White & a Little Bluer Tour, a tour dedicated to our armed forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. Justin is a co-star in the 2012 independent film, Rhino, which is now showing at film festivals all across the United States. Most recently, Justin was a semi-finalist in the prestigious Seattle International Comedy competition.
