The Release The Geek Team


Vittorio Leonardi

Since 1999, Vittorio has tried to show audiences a new way to see the world - slightly skewed, quirky & governed by cartoon law. Besides, stand-up and improv comedy (which includes his successful one man show and performances at the 2012 Paralympics in London), Vittorio adds seasoned lecturer, actor (you can spot him in this little number) as well as writer for comedy shows on South African TV (including "The Real Goboza") to his array of skills. You can find him at his website and via Twitter: @vittorioleo


Franco Strydom

The resident "boy wonder", who takes what we record and turns it into something passingly audible - honestly, we couldn't do without him. Completing his masters in Sound Design, Franco has done audio, content production in radio and on TV, done a bit of screenwriting and even a bit of directing. Franco is an an avowed browncoat and loves his sci-fi and fantasy.





Les Allen

Growing up a comic book and D&D nerd set Les on a life of geekery. Starting out in IT, with forays into sales and training, Les eventually landed a gig doing webinars and online presentations before striking out and running his own business. Listening to a vast array of awesome podcasts (like this one, this one, this one, oh and this one and this one) inspired him to want to do one of his own ... which has led to this little gig.
