Harmon Leon in The Jokes Saved My Soul
A hit at the Edinburgh Festival: Meet Harmon Leon - the NYC comedian who lives a double life. On stage, he's the epitome of confidence. Off stage, he has anxiety ordering a sandwich at a deli.
But fear not, the one therapy that makes him feel normal is coming on stage doing “The Jokes!” A Multimedia extravaganza and existential nod to Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape – through happy times, through sad times, with friends, with strangers – the one thing that brings us together, and saved Harmon’s soul is “The Jokes!”
Harmon Leon is NYC’s premiere multimedia comedian. He’s performed comedy around the world, including solo shows at the Kennedy Center, Edinburgh Festival, Montreal's Just for Laughs, Melbourne Comedy Festival, & SF SketchFest. He’s also appeared on This American Life, The Howard Stern Show, Last Call With Carson Daly, BBC World News, and the BBC Culture Show.
Harmon Leon is the author of eight books. He’s produced documentaries for The Sundance Film Festival, Vanity Fair, The Atlantic, and The New Yorker.
