Leon Ernest “Schuks” Schuster (born 21 May 1951) is a South African filmmaker, comedian, actor, presenter and singer.

Early life

Schuster was drawn to the filmmaking process at an early age. As a child, he and his brother would play practical jokes on his family and film these. He explained, in a 2010 interview about his early life in Bloemfontein, “I remember running down the aisle of the Ritz Theatre, playing cowboys & crooks, which was all the rage at the time. I also remember loving Laurel and Hardy, Charlie Chaplin and the Three Stooges. I was always acting things out, and pulling pranks. I used to fool my grandma into thinking I’d shot myself in the foot with my pellet gun… tomato sauce everywhere, me squealing like a wild pig. Pranking is just in my nature, but I’d never thought I’d become a movie star… no, I’m not a movie star, I’m just a local outjie that likes to entertain people.


Schuster went to Hoërskool Jim Fouché in Bloemfontein and then studied for a BA degree at the University of the Orange Free State, where he played rugby for the first team.He returned to Jim Fouché as a teacher for two years.
