Gerard Harris: Attention Seeker

27 Dundurn Street North, Hamilton, ON, Canada

Ticket Name
Attention Seeker

An hour and a bit of Gerard Harris's newish show Attention Seeker

Attention Seeker and C-

Consecutive nights of the comedic storytelling stylings of Gerard Harris and Eric Jaffe

Creator of 2015 Fringe hit “A Tension To Detail”, the mildly acclaimed British* comedian and storyteller Gerard Harris returns to Hamilton for the first time in forever to tell the regrettably true story of working as the joke writer for a famous comedian in the UK

It was only a matter of time before he decided to give standup a try himself and so, armed with only crippling stage fright, deep uncertainty in his own abilities and a collection of jokes the comedian didn’t buy, he entered a national standup competition with no idea of what he was doing or how to do it. The rest, as they say, is history. Except history is usually written by the winners

Also, next month the show begins a short run Off-Broadway, so you should see it now before nobody in New York does
