I’m Harris Bloom, a stand-up comic based in New York City.
I regularly perform at Gotham Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club… pretty much any place that will give me a microphone and agree to lock the doors so the audience can’t leave until I’m done.
I’ve appeared on CBS’s The Early Show, NY Ink, NY1, and have been featured in a few comedy festivals including the NY Underground Comedy Festival (No, it wasn’t in the subway).
I’ve had several memorable roles in commercials, like this one, TV and the cinema (okay, movies). I’ve even filmed a sitcom pilot with Gallagher (yes, the watermelon/mallet guy).
Hmmm, lets see… what else? Oh right. I am also a published author with essays in books, magazines and online. (I’m about to release a new book!)
Aaaaaaaand last but not least, I am a proud animal activist. In 2010 I started Stewie to the Rescue, a not-for-profit animal rescue organization. For my rescue efforts, I was named Humanitarian of the Year in 2012 by one organization (I beat Mother Theresa… It was close from what I hear) and was named New Yorker of the Week in January of 2013 by NY1! I regularly organize, produce, and perform in events that raise much needed funds for Stewie and other rescues.
Surprisingly, I do have a personal life (though they’re all in my act). I live with my wife, two adorable kids (no, seriously, I’m beginning to wonder if they’re mine) and our incontinent rescue mutt, aptly named River.
If you’re looking for a comic to host or produce a fundraiser, a stand-up comedian for a comedy night or event, or a character actor for a commercial, show, or movie, or even to get married (yes, I can perform weddings), shoot me an email and I’ll get right back to you.
As evidenced by the quote below, everyone’s a critic…
“Harris Bloom is the funniest comic in history. I don’t know why he isn’t on the TV. Maybe it’s that stupid tattoo he got on that stupid show.”
