10 '.. well there's no chance you'll get hit by a car in that outfit!'
11 Leonid: 'Well you never know, you never know...'
12 Jimmy: 'Welcome to the show, it's good to have you. Where're you from?'
Leonid: 'Originally I was from Russia,..'
13 '.. but now I live in Brooklyn, New York!'
14 Jimmy: 'You know you can possibly live in Brooklyn.'
15 Jimmy: 'I just don't think they'd... they'd allow it there in Brooklyn!'
16 Leonid: 'Why? What's wrong with this outfit??'
Jimmy: 'You look like a superhero! That's what you look like!'
18 Jimmy: 'Well how long have you been known as Leonid The Magnificent?'
19 Leonid: 'Actually I created this image three years ago when I was living in Miami.'
20 Jimmy: 'What were you doing at that time, when you made that... 'transformation'?'
Leonid: 'I had a good time that time...' (chuckle)
21 Leonid: 'Actually I was performing in the nightclub Tropigala.. in Fontainbleau Hilton in South Beach. And later I got to perform in a couple of night clubs..
22 Jimmy: 'And when you say perform.. you dance and you sing.. or is it you do a lot of juggling type balancing stuff?
23 Leonid: 'You know, I try to be multi-talented. I try to dance, I try to sing...'
24 '.. I try to juggle, I try to fly trapeze..
25 Jimmy: 'Alright, so you just try to do a whole bunch of things.. You're an entertainer.'
26 Leonid: 'Yes I try to be, because today to be a star people have to try to do anything.. It's very hard to get attention from people..'
27 '.. it's a lot of internet, playstations..'
28 .. nobody interested to see live entertainment. Everybody loves to see computer, and some graphic design.'
29 Jimmy: 'Well I think we've got a little bit of both here actually!' (chuckle)
30 Jimmy: 'And on the show America's Got Talent the judges were eh... they were not kind to you. And yet you kept coming back on the show. Why do you think that is?'
31 Leonid: 'I have no idea..'
32 Jimmy: 'Do you bear any illwill towards them? David Hasselhoff etc?'
Leonid: 'I do not understand. Can you please repeat?'
33 Jimmy: 'Well you know, it's interesting when you see David Hasselhoff telling somebody they're not talented!'
34 (ohhhh... :)
35 Leonid: 'You know Jimmy, every person who gets famous has a talent. So if they get famous they have the right to judge other people.. other people, and say their own opinion.'
36 '.. And as a performer I respect that, even I do not agree with it.'
37 Jimmy: 'I didn't get any of that. But I understand what you're saying.'
38 Jimmy: 'Now can you show us a bit of what is it you do on your shows?'
39 Leonid: 'Oh you know Jimmy, I'm so sorry. I would love to but I didn't bring any props with me!'
40 Jimmy: 'You didn't bring any props. Well what would you lik?'
Leonid: 'I don't know, maybe some hula hoops?'
41 Jimmy: 'Oh hold on.. I have a broom down here. Can you do anything with this? Coincidentally it happens to be painted the same color as your outfit!'
42 Leonid: 'Oh excellent! It's perfect!'
43 Leonid: 'So shall we try?'
45 Leonid: 'You know Jimmy, I'm feeling a little naked here.. Do you have something I can cover myself with?
46 Jimmy: 'It so happens we have this animal-skin thing right here... I didn't realize you were Jewish until just now!'
