Everyone is a Little Bit Trans[gender]: An Evening with Ian Harvie
January 30, 2017
Join Campus Events + Entertainment Distinguished Speakers and Headliners as we host an evening with Ian Harvie! Called quite possibly the most unique standup comic in the country by Frontiers Magazine, Ian Harvie is making a name for himself as a groundbreaking transgender comedian, actor, writer, storyteller, and producer.
Best known as Dale on the two-time Golden Globe Award-winning and five-time Emmy Award-winning Amazon original series, Transparent, Harvie has also appeared on Comedy Central's The Nightly News with Larry Wilmore, CNN's Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin, PBS's Roadtrip Nation, and ABC's Comics Unleashed. Born female, Harvie knew he was transgender at an early age, but didn't have a language for his gender identity at the time; he came out as queer at 19 and as transgender at 32. It was then that Harvie began his standup comedy career in Portland, Maine, and in 2006, he moved to the west coast, caught the eye of a renowned comedian, Margaret Cho, and began opening for her at venues around the world. With eccentric views on love, family, gender identification, and popular culture, Harive offers a broadly relatable and hilarious performance, as he proves that laughter cuts across all gender identities and ultimately unites us all.
