Leeds' first job as a professional actor was as an understudy in the Broadway musical Teddy & Alice. Eventually, Leeds took over the role of Quentin Roosevelt. Leeds then originated the role of Gavroche in the national tour of Les Miserables. After leaving Les Miserables, Leeds appeared in the Broadway production of Falsettos playing the role of Jason on Wednesday and Saturday matinees. He starred in the musical for a year, acting opposite such Broadway legends as Michael Rupert, Chip Zien, and Mandy Patinkin. After taking over the evening performances for a short stint, Leeds departed the production to play the title role in Carly Simon's opera Romulus Hunt.
Leeds and his writing partner at the time, David Lampson, were selected to be on the Bravo reality show Situation: Comedy. Produced by Sean Hayes, the show documented the process of making two competing pilots. Leeds and Lampson's pilot, Stephen's Life, was selected out of 10,000 submissions. The pilot was shot for NBC and went on to win the competition, launching Leeds' career as a writer. Leeds then returned to his acting career and appeared on Veep and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
His drama pilot Rex is Not Your Lawyer was produced by NBC in 2011. Leeds and Lampson then wrote another television pilot, a comedy for NBC called Brenda Forever, but it was not ordered for a full series. Leeds was later cast in a regular role as Josh in the ABC comedy Cristela.
Leeds then wrote a comedy pilot called Those People for Kelly Ripa's company and ABC and appeared on the Comedy Central show Workaholics. In November 2015, Leeds became a member of the Main Company of the sketch comedy/improv troupe The Groundlings.
