Leonard Ouzts

Ouzts is still a young comic, but his appealing history – which is full of shit jobs, like being a waiter at IHOP – and loads of self-doubt give this natural talent plenty of fodder for his act. An offhanded yet inviting delivery sucks audiences in and makes them want to root for him as he ponders: "What if I get a big girl pregnant, and the baby grow up, start to walk and run, and we can't catch it? We'll literally be unfit parents." His expressive mug – including eyes that widen to the side of saucers – can create a punchline on its own. Add these assets together, and Ouzts can convince comedy fans he is the complete package in just one set, as is evidenced in some of this New York comic's early credits, including Adam Devine's House Party and Conan. While Ouzts is a big dude, and quite happy to talk food and weight, it's not a signature issue on which he'll spend the entirety of his career dwelling.
