Dubbed ExtraOrdinary, the show is a blend of satire, hilarious impressions, clever quips, science and “cutting-edge comedy.” Born and raised in Santa Cruz, Harris is an award-winning comedian, director and filmmaker who has dozens of credits to his name. His television appearances include Jimmy Kimmel Live, Comedy Central and his own show, Critical & Thinking. Garnering comparisons to Lenny Bruce, Bill Maher and George Carlin, Harris skillfully weaves together thought-provoking insights with laugh-out-loud humor.
