Harmon Leon in The Jokes Saved My Soul
  • Camden Fringe

NYC comedian Harmon Leon (VICE) " lives a double life. On-Stage Harmon " is very confident and shows no fear. Off-Stage Harmon has anxiety and feels awkward ordering a kabob at a takeaway. But the therapy that he has found to feel normal " is coming on stage and doing The Jokes. A multimedia extravaganza and nod to Samuel Becketts Krapps Last Tape " Harmon dives deep into his love/hate relationship with the world of comedy, only to realize that The Jokes saved his soul. An Edinburgh veteran, Harmon has had sold out comedy shows around their world, including The Kennedy Center, Montreals Just for Laughs, and the Melbourne Comedy Festival.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
