Coming Out Day Comedy: Ian Harvie

Thursday, October 8, 2015
5:00pm – 6:00pm

Storrs Campus
Student Union Theatre

Join the Rainbow Center in celebrating (early!) National Coming Out day with the comedy of Ian Harvie.

You may have seen Ian Harvie on Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore or may co-starring on the two-time, Golden Globe Award-winning, TV series TRANSPARENT on Amazon.

He was known for being Margaret Cho’s opening act for years, turned cross-country headliner and a groundbreaking transgender comedian, unafraid to joke about subjects no other comedian has ever touched.

In the spring 2014, Harvie, with the help of friend and Executive Producer Cho, Harvie unveiled his first-ever live standup comedy special, poking fun at topics from top surgery, to his fear of public restrooms, to his active sex life in the feature concery film IAN HARVIE SUPERHERO.

Harvie’s unique act queers the traditionally macho, sex-obsessed world of stand up in ways you won’t believe, proving that laughter cuts across all gender identities and ultimately unites us all.

Free admission for all!
