Born and raised in Adelaide, Leigh Qurban commenced his stand up comedy career in 2011 and quickly rose through the ranks featuring and hosting with his observational, relatable and, at times quirky, material. In 2015 he was awarded the Adelaide Comedy “Peer’s Choice” Award and in the following year took out Adelaide Comedian of the year. Described as an effective storyteller and a larrikin, Leigh has proven to be a crowd favorite to a broad audience and has supported the likes of Sam Simmons, Felicity Ward and Akmal Saleh. Leigh has also shown off his comedic acting talent in the widely popular “The Sound Of Nazis” and “Worst Side Story” and outrageously silly "Wudidonga Arts Revue".
