Author and comedian Harmon Leon has made a career out of going undercover in disguise and infiltrating extremist subcultures.
He’s infiltrated everything from white supremacist hate groups to the Christian Wrestling Federation in Georgia (where they bodyslam for Jesus). Harmon’s your multimedia tour guide into the diseased underbelly of America, as he brings to life such horrors as the America’s Most Beautiful Baby Contest and costarring on a hidden camera show with OJ Simpson – called “Juice’d.”
Weird, wildly original, and incomprehensible, Harmon brings to light the dark side of American culture.
Harmon Leon is the author of 6 books, including National Lampoon’s Roadtrip USA. He has appeared on the Howard Stern Show, Last Call with Carson Daly, Penn & Teller’s Bullshit, and Spike TV’s 1000 Ways to Die. He’s performed at the Montreal, Edinburgh, Vancouver, and Melbourne Comedy Festivals.
