The Pursuit of Awesome

The Pursuit of Awesome

David Harris performs new and unusual stories, stunts, and physical comedy. Why? Because it will be awesome! David always wanted to be awesome. In 1983, he tried to ride his Huffy bicycle up a tree. Had he made it to the top; it would have been awesome. In 1985, he took jazz dancing lessons at Colleen's School of Dance. Why? Because he thought he signed up for Break Dancing lessons and that would have been awesome! In 2014, he learned how to balance a knife on his tongue. Why, because the path toward awesome is easily confused with the path toward being reckless and weird.

Through juggling stunts, snow-shovel acrobatics, and comic dancing, David shares his embarrassments, failures, and advice in the pursuit of awesome.

Pioneer Press
"It's David Harris' funny and self-deprecating humor that sells this show."
Terry Walker
"Our students were trying to mimic his paper balancing tricks for weeks afterwards. His use of props, tricks, and balance is amazing."
