Gerard Harris

A Tension To Detail

“He just rambled on and on and on and I never wanted him to stop” (Audience member, Montreal). That’s the best description of what it’s like to see Gerard Harris live. The comedian and storyteller is "a brilliant, engaging, dynamic & hilarious performer" (Visitorium, Ottawa) with “all the wit and timing of an accomplished road comic” (Winnipeg Free Press).

Mixing the deeply personal with the profoundly frivolous, the show looks at the foundational tales we tell ourselves and the narrative choices we make as writers of our own lives. You’ll also learn about the functionality of the average bulldog brain and the most humane way to dispatch a lobster into eternity. Equal parts philosophical, psychological and scatological, this award-winning show is “an unforgettable storybook ride of twists and turns told by a master craftsman” (Art Murmurs, Wellington).

Since there's more space, here are more nice things people have said:

"very funny, reminiscent of Woody Allen in his early-‘60s stand-up years" Pioneer Press, Minneapolis

“Hilarious, yet thought provoking... Opening night’s audience ran to the stage to hug him” - The View, Hamilton
