So who exactly is David Leno? Well to begin with he’s a career consultant to the stars, and the latest luminary to get his own show on comedy channel Comedy Central (DStv Channel 122).
Branding guru Leno, is a master of inspirational marketing speak and hard-hitting career advice and is the latest satirical invention and alter ego of South African comedy maverick Brendan Jack, creator and star of the hilarious Crazy Monkey comedy productions (Straight Outta Benoni and Footskating 101).
One by one, David Leno is transforming the lives of a host of South African celebrities including the likes of Danny K, Josh Strauss, Louise Carver, Joey Rasdien, Lira, Bevan Cullinan, Chris Forrest, Tamara Dey, David Kibuuka, Rolanda Marais, Cito from Wonderboom, Rob Van Vuuren and Jack Parow. The series premiere focuses on a session between Leno and his client Danny K, in which Leno gives Danny some helpful pointers on branding, (“ever thought about calling yourself Danny L?”), mantras and marriage.
“I’m just glad to help facilitate better celeb careers, and to help make our country more successful,” declares Brendan Jack. “As a good friend of David Leno, I can confirm that he’s itching to consult the s**t out of people.”
This looks like it’s going to be proper funny and I can’t wait to see the first episode come Monday 1st April 2013.
