Harmon Leon/Colin Mahan: Comedy Double Feature
Direct from last month's sell out performance at SF Sketchfest! Two of SF's most innovative performers team up once again FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY!
Harmon Leon in Ironic/NOT Ironic
Award-winning San Francisco author, filmmaker, and comedic performer Harmon Leon brings you, Ironic/NOT Ironic. This will be his last show before an extended run at the Adelaide Festival in Australia.
Take Harmon's hand as he examines all things ironic and all things NOT ironic. (That's a lot of ground to cover.)
Harmon Leon knows irony. This is a man who has made a name for himself by adopting clever personas and disguises and infiltrating such TV shows as Blind Date, The Judge Joe Brown Show, Whammy, and Penn & Teller's Showtime series:
They say people don't understand irony. In this ironic age we live in, Harmon Leon dissects the incongruity between the intended meaning of things and the real actual perceived meaning of things: ironic music, ironic T-shirts, ironic romances, ironic breakups, ironic chimps wearing people clothes.In the end, you'll look at the entire world and contemplate whether it's ironic or NOT ironic.
Harmon Leon is the author of 6 books, including National Lampoon's Roadtrip USA. Maybe you've read Harmon's columns on Huffington Post.
His other writing can be found in Esquire, Playboy, Maxim and Huffington Post. He has appeared on the Howard Stern Show, Last Call with Carson Daly, Penn & Teller's Bullshit, and Spike TV's 1000 Ways to Die. He's performed at the Montreal, Edinburgh, Vancouver, and Melbourne Comedy Festivals.
"Hilarious!" Howard Stern
"One funny motherf*cker!" Jimmy Kimmel
"A comedy force to be reckoned with" -- *****Edinburgh List
"Leon constantly tweaks us onto how amazingly anything or anything is ironic, or not ironic and manages to keep his audience in stitches of laughter" *****The Scotsman
TOO MANY WORDZ: A CROCK OPERA IN 1D
Humanity has been enslaved by the evil Sky Computer, a vile machine with the voices of Tom Cruise, Nicholas Cage and Donald Pleasence. Only spandex-clad ex-antihero Triforce Maiden can lead a ragtag band of celebrity impressions on an intergalactic shoddyssey filled with song parodies in this comedy + rock = crock opera.
Don't miss this theatrical re-release of 1982's lovingly forgotten sci-fi musical flop! World-obscure SF comic Colin Mahan rechurns with this high-energy comedic one man show that sends up 80s sci-fi movies, rock musicals, and high energy comedic one man shows that send up 80s sci-fi movies, rock musicals, and high-energy comedic one man shows. In mundane 1D!
*Too Many Wordz is the title of the show, not how you'll describe the show to co-workers the next day.
Colin Mahan is almost someone. He's appeared on The Man Show, MTV, Comedy Central, VH1, Spike TV and other channels in the DirectTV mid-level bundle. He has a lot of cartoon/video game/web animation voice credits. He swears he was in several unaired sketch comedy pilots and was almost hired as a cast member for 'Famous Show(s)' (don't get him started talking about that). He's performed in a lot of venues across this fine nation (and Vancouver), and has been in every SF Sketchfest. He was a founding member of SF sketch group Fresh Robots. So, there you have it.
