Harmon Leon’s Big Fat Racist Show
February 17 @ 7:05 pm| $5
This is a comedy show about racism – and not an hour of racist jokes.
In this Trump-infested, Brexit-loving era; we need to laugh at hate! NY comedian and VICE contributor, Harmon has made a career out of infiltrating extremist hate groups in Trump America. Take his hand as he leads you on a multimedia undercover journey with the heinous Westboro Baptist Church, racist assault weapon gatherings, and with white supremacists that try to recruit him at TGI Fridays.
Plus songs! Complete sellout at Edinburgh Fringe Festival ’16.
