Hi there! I’m Harris Bloom, a stand-up comic based in New York City.
By day, I pretend to be a regulatory accountant, which is somehow even more boring than it sounds. At night, I don a fresh coat of aftershave, and tell jokes to semi-inebriated strangers in comedy clubs.
Somehow I’ve managed to get myself invited to CBS’s The Early Show, been featured in the 2010 New York Comedy Contest as well as the 2009 NY Underground Comedy Festival in their flagship Emerging Comics Competition.
But because all stand-up comics are really masochists at heart, I regularly do shows for live audiences at comedy clubs such as the Gotham Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, Comedy Cove, Brewhouse Comedy – 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 also had several memorable roles in movies and commercials.
And while I’ve been privileged to play a broad range of landmark roles, perhaps my most memorable role (at least, I’ll never forget it) was playing a pile of talking crap.
(I’ll never understand why the Academy didn’t nominate me for that role. I was a damn good pile of talking crap. There’s never been another like me, before, or since… but I digress…)
If you’re looking for a comic for a fundraiser, a stand-up comedian for a comedy night or event, or a character actor for a commercial, show, or movie shoot me an email and I’ll get right back to you.
“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.”
