Harmon Leon in The Jokes Saved My Soul
NYC comedian Harmon Leon (VICE) – lives a double life. ‘On-Stage Harmon’ – is very confident and shows no fear. ‘Off-Stage Harmon’ has anxiety and feels awkward ordering a kabob at a takeaway. But the therapy that he has found to feel normal – is coming on stage and doing “The Jokes.”
A multimedia extravaganza and nod to Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape – Harmon dives deep into his love/hate relationship with the world of comedy, only to realize that ‘The Jokes’ saved his soul.
An Edinburgh veteran, Harmon has had sold out comedy shows around their world, including The Kennedy Center, Montreal’s Just for Laughs, and the Melbourne Comedy Festival.
