Robin Harris

Best known for his quick-witted, off-the-street, raunchy style of comedy, Robin Harris inspired and paved the way for Martin Lawrence, Bernie Mac and a whole generation of comics who mixed street and stage in a whole new way. For a stretch in the early 1990s, Harris was the most dangerous comic in America. No one in the house was safe from his observational barbs, and everyone-- celebrities, police, regulars, and the occasional wayward Caucasian-- felt the sting of his wit. Harris honed his skills on the streets of Chicago and LA, defending himself from an early age with an ability to turn the table on bullies with the sharpness of his tongue. A high school track star who earned a college scholarship, Harris dropped out and devoted himself fulltime to his comedic dream. He spent years working funerals, barbecues, local talent shows in South LA, developing the material that would reshape black comedy in the ‘90s and eventually take him to the top.
