The UK's most revealing and fearless new face of stand-up has had an insanely busy year. Since performing his acclaimed sold-out debut at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2011, Jeff Leach has gone to previously unheard of extremes to better understand society and also himself. Under a year ago he worked as a male prostitute for his submersive documentary Male Hookers Uncovered (Current TV) and six months later explored his sex addiction and embraced a life of celibacy in Confessions Of A Sex Addict (BBC3).
Following on from these programmes Jeff has gone on to fight an epic internal battle for his inner feminist against his sexual demons and ultimately searched for true love. Will this hilarious lothario's twisted boyfriend experience ever result in contentment or happiness? See Jeff spin entertaining tales covering the past year and how he has overcome his addiction to naively stumble his way through the unexplored world of monogamy.
