Harrison Greenbaum “What Just Happened” Magic Show
Harrison Greenbaum began performing magic at the age of five and
stand-up comedy while studying psychology and English at Harvard. A
summa cum laude graduate, Harrison was the longest-tenured president
of the Harvard Magic Society in the group’s history and the creator and
co-founder of the Harvard College Stand-Up Comic Society.
Now living in Manhattan, Harrison has become one of the most in-demand
performers in New York, performing in more than 600 shows a year, and
thus leading both the NY Daily News and Time Out NY to call him "the
hardest- working man in comedy." One of Comedy Central's "Comics to
Watch," Harrison has also received many awards and honors for his
comedy, including the Andy Kaufman Award (2010) for creativity and
originality in comedy and the Shorty Award in collaboration with Comedy
Central and the New York Comedy Festival for "Best Emerging Comic"
On television, Harrison has been featured on America’s Got Talent, Last
Comic Standing, Conan, AXS.TV’s Gotham Comedy Live, and National
Geographic Channel’s Brain Games. He was also the warm-up comic for
Katie, Katie Couric’s talk show on ABC, and the head writer of
Telemundo’s first-ever late night show, Tu Nite con Lorenzo Parro.
As a magician, Harrison was named one of "today's best" by Newsday. He
tours around the world as one of the stars of The Illusionists: Direct from
Broadway, the biggest-selling magic show in history, and the host of The
Unbelievables, which ran for more than 20 performances at the Sydney
Opera House, toured Australia, and has been seen by more than 100,000
people. The most requested performer at Monday Night Magic, the
longest- running Off-Broadway magic show in New York, Harrison has
also performed at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, the Mystery Lounge in
Boston, and was one of only 30 magicians chosen to perform at the
International Festival of Magic, Illusion, and the Unusual in Louisville,
Kentucky. He is also the proud winner of the Senator Crandall Award for
Excellence in Comedy, given out annually at Abbott’s Magic Get-Together
in Colon, Michigan.
Harrison's solo magic and comedy show, Harrison Greenbaum: What Just
Happened?, debuted at the legendary New York comedy hotspot, the
Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, before commencing an Off-Broadway
run and international tour that has included performances at the Kennedy
Center in Washington, D.C, the Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA, and the
legendary Comedy Cellar in New York (their first-ever magic show).
From colleges to comedy clubs, from talk shows to theaters, Harrison is
bringing his special combination of comedy and magic to audiences
around the world, proving each night why publications such as am New
York have described him as one of comedy and magic’s “hottest rising
stars and, without a doubt, one of the most unique acts you'll ever see.”
