Harmon Leon's Big Fat Racist Show @Upper Eastside EdFest

  • Ryan's Daughter 350 East 85th Street New York, NY, 10028 United States (map)


The Big Fat Racist Show returns to Unofficial Upper East Side EdFest at Ryans Daughter

This is a comedy show about racism - and not an hour of racist jokes.

VICE contributor/Meet the Deplorables author, Harmon Leon has made a career out of infiltrating extremist hate groups in Trump America. Take his hand as he leads you on a multimedia undercover journey with:

-The heinous Westboro Baptist Church

-Racist assault weapon gatherings in Kentucky

-White supremacists that try to recruit him at Applebee's.

Plus songs! Complete sellout at Edinburgh Festival Fringe '15

In this Trump-infested, Brexit-loving era; we need to laugh at hate!
