Leland Klassen

Comedian & Actor  

Raised on a farm in the heart of Canada, Leland quickly learned that shoveling manure and weeding potatoes, although lucrative, wasn’t his passion in life. So with absolutely no clear direction or vision for his future, he did what everyone does when they find themselves in that position – he went to College. He wisely chose his classes based on whichever cute girl happened to catch his attention and after several short years of last minute cramming and late assignments, Leland graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a degree in Anthropology.

As you might have guessed, Leland’s university education opened many doors for him in the years to come, but for some reason, he was dissatisfied working for a courier as a night shift stock boy. By this time married and with his first child soon on the way the most responsible and obvious choice was, of course, to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.

His career has led him many places around the world doing live acts, television and film. Recently he starred in three movies, “Extraordinary”, “Sleeper Agent” and “Altar Egos.”

Leland and his wife, Carrie, have been married for 23 years and he’s been doing comedy for 22 of them! The Klassen family lives in Canada where they have raised their two sons, Cooper and Hunter.
