“I’ve always been a fan of comedy,” says Leonard Ouzts. “Everyone likes to laugh, and I was always good at making people laugh. So the two went together.” A Virginia native, Ouzts has only had one other job: server at IHOP. “IHOP has steaks; if you don’t have health insurance, turn the page,” he tells audiences. These days, he’s talking more about himself. “Every set I do now is about me now,” he says. “It’s all about trying to peel back the onion to understand who I am and how I think.” He still tries to mix it up, though. “I do a little bit of everything. You just have to come see me. Some days I’ll talk about Trump for 40 minutes and the next day I won’t say anything about him—you never know.” Ouzts lets the crowd lead his set. Speaking of, this may your last chance to catch Ouzts for a while, as his acting career has taken off. After this run of shows, he’ll begin production on the TV series Abby’s, set to debut on NBC in January next year. 16+.
