Harmon Leon Infiltrates Trump America

  • The PIT 123 East 24th Street New York, NY, 10010 United States (map)

Fresh from a sold out run at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland, NY comedian/VICE contributor, Harmon Leon has made a career out of infiltrating extremist groups in Trump America. Take his hand as he leads you on a multimedia journey into his true-life, undercover exploits with such facets of Trump America as:

-Anti-immigration vigilantes on the Mexican border
-The world of Christian conversion therapy
-Abortion protesters outside of Planned Parenthood.


Plus songs!

Weird, wildly original and completely incomprehensible - if you're not outraged in Trump America - then you're not paying attention!
