David Harris has amazed and amused audiences with his physical comedy shows. Using a variety of unconventional props such as hand trucks, sheets of paper, bicycle wheels, and buckets, David blends acrobatics, comedy, and virtuosic object manipulation. He graduated from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks with a degree in English.  David has performed his one-man shows and other collaborations at the John Hassler Theater, Walker Art Center, Red Eye Theatre, Dreamland Arts, and many other theaters across the Midwest. He has performed at libraries, schools, fairs, corporate events, comedy clubs, variety shows, cabarets, and in dozens of theatrical productions. His shows include the Portrait of the Artist as a Yo-yo Man, Everything Must Go (with Katie Kaufmann), Delivery Guy, The Paper Mover, BOOKcrobatics, and What I Want to Be When I Grow Up!
