There will be cake! From the creator and performer of Fringe hits Chaotica, ONEymoon, and All KIDding Aside.

The critics have spoken. Leila is a dominatrix with NNNNs and 0 boyfriends.

Real life Persian Princess seeking a real guy who is trusting, healthy, and has his Canadian citizenship. Must enjoy authentic middle eastern cuisine, hypnotic dance moves, and little bit of fluff and scruff. No smoking, drinking, or drugging allowed! If my parents don't like you chances are I will ;) Swipe right for singing, dancing, acting, joking, and modeling my me (Leila).

"This 30-minute character-based blast of zany high-energy fun introduces us to Leila, a shamelessly self-obsessed Iranian woman living in Toronto who loves to text and sing and live her best life, but is as naive about relationships as she is stubbornly confident in her own amazingness.

Sporting a colourful headscarf, an awesome tiger-print outfit and a full beard, the mysterious performer behind the act (Izad Etemadi) blends over-the-top storytelling, comic cover songs and running punny gags into a laugh-filled tale about Leila befriending an Instagram celebrity and attending a gala at Casa Loma. Part of the plot involves returning free samples, but this sample-sized show leaves you wanting more Leila!" NOW Magazine
