Leeson brings comedy tour


Just ahead of the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, comedian Jeff Leeson will be at the Watson Art Centre (WAC) auditorium, Apr. 16.
“We’re doing this comedy tour, it’s called Grandma Used to Heckle Me Comedy Tour. And it’s based on two things. One is a comedy special that I have under the same name and the other reason for that is that it used to happen to me,” Leeson said.
“My grandma used to come to shows when I was younger and she would yell a few things out. Nothing bad, just usually to help and she would usually get a really good reaction from the crowd.”
His grandmother’s involvement helped Leeson form his style of comedy, which is very personalized.
