When Moose Jaw, Sask. comedy duo “Leroy and Leroy” began posting their short video hot-takes on Instagram and TikTok in 2021, their hope was to get up to 10,000 followers. Just over a year later, their quirky videos highlighting the odd sites and signs found along Canada’s roadways now have hundreds of thousands of followers and over 12 million views on TikTok alone. In the process they’ve helped bring some much needed comic relief to the world, while road-tripping back and forth across Canada, signing off with their signature catch phrase: “There’s Always Something to Do!”

In this interview, David and “Leroy in front of the camera” talk about the duo’s origins, the creation of that catchphrase, the legend of Brandon (Leroy and Leroy’s Pete Best), the moment they knew they’d taken off, Leroy’s fashion sense and where they’re headed next (look out mid-west America!).
