Leif's crowd pleasing interactive style, mastery of characters, and musical comedy is an entertainment package that makes any special event that much more memorable! Born in Sweden, raised in L.A., Leif began comedy 20 years ago at the world famous Comedy Store in Hollywood CA, and has shared the stage with such great acts as Weird Al Yankovic, Howie Mandel, Paul Rodriquez, Steve Alan, and Jimmy "JJ" Walker among others. Leif has appeared on The Comedy Network's Comedy at Club 54 and Comedy Kitchen, Last Comic Standing, ABC's Three's Company and General Hospital. Leif can be heard regularly on XM satellite radio. Major casino appearances include the Riviera and Bally's in Las Vegas and Trump Plaza in Atlantic City. Leif's corporate clients include: Coca Cola, ARCO Oil, BP Oil, Pioneer Newspapers, Idaho State Police, ISBA, Idaho Association of Counties, and Teton Wireless Television. Leif Skyving has been clean and sober for 24 years and is a hit at N.A. and A.A. conventions with his specialized act and message of hope for those occasions.
Perhaps Eddie Brill, talent coordinator for the comedians on "The Late Show With David Letterman" said it best:
"Leif Skyving is a very funny comic. A consummate pro and a lot of fun to watch onstage."
