p_1919_i_5212045

Direct from This American Life – VICE contributor and comedian Harmon Leon has made a career out of going undercover in disguise and infiltrating extremist subcultures in America.

Harmon’s your multimedia tour guide into the diseased underbelly of America, as he brings to life such delightful horrors as:

-The Christian Wrestling Federation: where they bodyslam for Jesus

-A hidden camera show with OJ Simpson

-Being a clothed extra in a porn movie called Throat Bangers 2.

Weird, wildly original, and incomprehensible, Harmon brings to light the dark side of American culture.

Featuring special guest: Matt Nagin

Harmon Leon is the author of 6 books, including National Lampoon’s Roadtrip USA. He has appeared on This American Life, 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 takes a risk with his comedy and audiences should too.” – 1⁄2 Adelaide Advertiser

“This was the kind of risky performance the Fringe is supposed to be about. See this if you truly want to see something edgy, funny and different!” – Rip It Up/Australia
