Meet the standup comedian and storyteller Leif, The Disney Delusion. In our latest blog, we will find out all about this Fringe show.

Briefly introduce yourself/your company…
I’m a standup comedian and storyteller from Edmonton, Alberta. I’ve spent this entire past summer touring across Canada, telling this extremely revealing and confessional story to a wild variety of audiences – all of whom now have the power to blackmail me should I ever decide to run for political office.

What is it that makes your work/company unique
Vulnerability. My favourite artists have always been those who make me feel less alone in the world and because of that I’ve always aspired to (over)share as much as possible with the audience through my comedy, especially when it comes to things I absolutely feel I should keep to myself.

What kind of experience do you hope audiences will have during your show?
Raucous laughter, peppered with occasional moments of cringe-induced dread.

Without spoilers, tell us what you think audiences will remember most about your show?
The faulty nature of drunk logic.

What do you think is the best thing about the Fringe?
I love the DIY nature of the Fringe. The uncensored, lottery based-system allows for all walks of artists to self-invest in their work and present their best, boldest, and weirdest ideas directly to the public who, in turn, get to vote on it with their dollar. It’s everything theatre should be (and usually isn’t).

What is the most important thing you hope audiences will take away from your show?
An overwhelming sense of relief that this insane, humiliating story didn’t happen to them.
