NEW WORK

Gerard Harris: Attention Seeker

Gerard Harris

What do you call the nervous, distracted jokewriter for a top UK comedian when he’s forced to do standup, using crippling stage-fright & jokes the comedian didn’t buy, all so the world can see who’s REALLY the funny one?

From the creator of last year’s Best of Fest storytelling show A Tension To Detail comes this regrettably true story about ambition, frustration, stand-up comedy and lie-down psychology from the mildly acclaimed British storyteller and comedian.

“Hugely talented, a cut above most storytellers.” -CBC
“Slipping wholeheartedly into Harris’s comic world is not just rewarding, but inevitable.” -Ottawa Citizen
“Don’t miss this magnetic stage presence.” – New Ottawa Critics
“He is doing something so unlike conventional storytelling or long-form stand-up comedy that he is dancing on the edge of a knife.” -Apt613, Ottawa
★★★★★ “incredibly smart and funny ” -Edmonton Journal
★★★★ “it’s . . . what was I going to . . . . Oh, yeah, good” -Saskatoon Star-Phoenix
“The master of spinning yarns.” -The Coast, Halifax
“Come with your antennae up so you don’t miss a thing.” -Montreal Rampage
“Harris is engaging and interesting and a masterful story-teller.” -Stage Whispers, Perth
“I loved every minute of it.” -Art Murmurs, Wellington
