Dani Faith Leonard

Comedian, writer, producer and host of Adult Sex Ed comedy show.

Dani Faith Leonard is a comedian, writer, and producer whose heart lives in many cities and whose stuff currently lives in Brooklyn NY. She is a fierce and generous collaborator and drinker of expensive coffee (but really comfortable at Dunkin’).

Dani created and hosts the live comedy show ADULT SEX ED (Caveat, National Lampoon), which plugs the holes in your education. She is a frequent guest on podcasts and loves telling personal stories on stage about family, sex, and relationships.

She currently has several feature films in development as a writer and loves creating big, complex comedic worlds inhabited by very real characters. Recent films as a producer include COAST (Producer, 2022 release) and the documentary RED, WHITE, AND WASTED (Co-Producer, Tribeca Film Festival). With Bobby Farrelly, Dani executive produced LEZ BOMB (2018, Amazon). In 2017, she executive produced SXSW Audience Award winner THE LIGHT OF THE MOON (Amazon).

When she’s not developing projects of her own, Dani works with companies and brands to create comedic content that usually sits at the intersection of entertainment and activism. A firm believer that even the most complex topics can be funny, she will make you laugh about the things you thought were boring.

From 2010 – 2021, Dani co-founded and ran Big Vision Empty Wallet, an inclusion-focused film and media incubator. Through BVEW, she produced and supported dozens of feature films that premiered at top festivals, and screened in theaters and on streaming platforms. She co-hosts the Creative Producing Conference, is a member of Women Independent Producers, and is on the advisory board of Catalyst Content Festival. She has spoken at Sundance, SXSW, many colleges, and is an advocate for arts education.

A Long Island native (don’t judge!), Dani spends her free time hiking, trying any new workout trend, and watching every documentary about cults. While movies are in her blood, she started her career in musical theater, so be careful inviting her to karaoke. You can find her on social media channels @danifleonard.
