A fascinating and funny mix of spot-on impressions and clever, cutting-edge comedy, Ian Harris' act has landed him coveted appearances on JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE!, COMEDY CENTRAL, DirecTV's MMA drama "KINGDOM", as well as his own hour TV special "CRITICAL & THINKING"" which AXS TV called "A truly masterful hour of wit, humor and derisive jabbing." A top headliner for over 20 years, Ian was also named #25 on Entertainment Journal's Top 100 Comedians list, was a semi-finalist in Comedy Central's “Laugh Riots Competition” and dubbed “Top Character Comedian in Town” by Backstage West. His keen grasp of science, evidenced by his satirical, skeptical take on everything from religion to global warming-deniers and beyond, has also earned him comparisons to favorite thinking-man's comics like Lenny Bruce, Bill Maher and George Carlin. With a unique point of view and an impressive array of comedian talents, Ian delivers a thought provoking style of stand-up all his own.
