Biography

During the late '70's, a porcelain skinned child by the name of Jarrod Harris was conceived in a trailer after a can of Beanie Weenies and countless PBRs. Often times, people with no education, money, or future are determined to better their situation by humping and thus making a new mouth to feed. That mouth is then left with two options, jail, or making comedy out of his misfortunes by complaining about it to rooms full of strangers all over the country. Jarrod is best described as an atypical southern comic. His comedy is autobiographical, silly, dark, and oftentimes absurd. At last count, Jarrod has four chest hairs. Jarrod's stand-up has been seen on the NBC's Night Shift, We Channel's Secrete Lives of Women, Tru TV's Driving Me Mad, Comcast Comedy on Demand, The San Francisco Comedy Competition, The Boston International Comedy Festival, and the Laugh your Asheville off Festival.

Matthew M. Hauger - Arkansas Tech University
“Jarrod Harris was absolutely hilarious and had our students laughing hard from start to finish. They left with great moods and sore sides! I think a couple students even wet their pants.”

Jennifer L. Granger - Lasell College – Newton, MA.
“Jarrod Harris was a pleasure to work with prior to, during, and after the event. He was very accommodating and well-priced. Our students LOVED him and thought he was really funny and entertaining! The student body right away said they want him to come back again soon! I would recommend having him on your campus soon!”

Megan Pennington – Penn College – Williamsport, PA.
Absolutely hilarious even if I think of some of the jokes now I will still laugh about them. Jarrod kept the crowd laughing. Fantastic job, it was a great show!
