Written and performed by Harmon Leon
Harmon Leon lives a double life. 'On-Stage Harmon’ – is very confident and shows no fear. ‘Off-Stage Harmon’ has anxiety and feels awkward ordering a sandwich. A nod to Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape – Harmon dives deep into his love/hate relationship with the world of comedy, only to realize that ‘The Jokes’ saved his soul.
