Harmon Leon in Obey McGonagall
See the preview of Harmon Leon’s new show that will be at this summer’s Edinburgh Festival in Scotland and the Hollywood Fringe Festival in LA. William Topaz McGonagall (1823-1902) is considered the worst poet in Scottish history. McGonagall was noted as being so giftedly bad - he unwittingly backed into genius. American comedian Harmon Leon draws uncanny comparisons to his own career in the celebration of heroic failure, standing up for the underdog, and, of course, all things McGonagall. Remember: Obey McGonagall!
“Hilarious!” Howard Stern “One funny motherf*cker!” Jimmy Kimmel “A comedy force to be reckoned with.” *****Edinburgh List “Leon takes a risk with his comedy and audiences should too.” ****
Colin Mahan IN Preview: The Movie
This summer, in a world where it’s this time, evil MegaCorp CEO Michael Douglas is re-purposing proper-tainments under the MegaCorp umbrella into various de-cycled re-contented excre-bitions. The resultant long movie trailer can only be stopped by a mysterious ghost-in-the-machine barely acted by Jean Claude Van Damme.
Basically, it’s Colin doing one long movie trailer parody.
