A Finnish comedian who has created a career in America in recent years Ismo Leikola recalls Helsingin Sanomat the moment in the interview when he was asked to join the super-popular Conan O’Brienin show’hun. The call came in early 2018.
– I was in the bath when Conan’s bookkeeper and my own manager made a joint call. They asked if I was sitting firmly, Leikola recalls in an interview with the magazine.
Leikola agreed to the request and left filming with a couple of days’ notice. According to the magazine, the Finnish comedian was to make a special episode for HBO Max with Conan O’Brien this year, but the plans were canceled due to the corona.
Since then, Leikola has also visited, among other things, the popular James Cordenin in the program.
However, Korona drove him with his wife Angelikan with Finland.
Joint book project
Leikola has said that he and his wife Angelika have previously used corona isolation to benefit from writing a book. She has portrayed Angelika as her long-term business partner and writing partner.
– We will also write my longer updates together. He is strongly involved in creating my career and the entire personal brand. Our different natures serve this project, Leikola tells Helsingin Sanomat.
Leikola will be touring Finland next winter on the If We Are Honest Now tour, which has been implemented with exceptional arrangements.
