The Organic Tour is a comedy tour and documentary featuring comedians Jarrod Harris and Ryan Singer traveling around the country in Jarrod’s RV. Over the past few years, vibrant organic comedy scenes have sprung up all around the country and have been the life support system for comedians like Jarrod and Ryan that have one foot in the mainstream rooms and the other firmly planted in the alternative scene. These scenes are all uniquely driven by the love of stand up comedy by the comedians who live there. This tour will showcase the freedom of the art form these venues allow and the people who have unwittingly created a place for comedians to come into their own before breaking through to the next level like Jarrod and Ryan. This will be funny, weird, experimental, and most of all – organic.
Over 20 million people have seen Jarrod’s popular Action Figure Therapy characters and most recently the series was named LA Weekly’s “Top Comic To Watch in 2012.” His character Jungle was also featured on the front page of the Huffington Post Comedy section in 2011. Jarrod has also been seen on TBS’ Lopez Tonight and Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham.
“Jarrod Harris’ act is an oddly comfortable mix of trailer-park filth, comic angst, and hipster irony. While his style may fit into several categories along the comedy spectrum, his clever writing only fits into one: funny.” – Noah Gardenswartz – Creative Loafing
Ryan Singer is the rarest of breeds: a comic’s comic that electrifies mainstream audiences with material that is both uncompromising and unpretentious. His debut album HOW TO GET HIGH WITHOUT DRUGS was selected as a Top 10 Album of 2010 by Punchline Magazine (now Laughspin) and his sophomore release COMEDY WONDER TOWN debuted in the Top 20 on iTunes. Ryan was recently mentioned in Rolling Stone Magazine as a “Comic Who Should Be Big” and NY Magazine as a “Top 5 Comic to Watch.”
“Ryan Singer is one of my favorite comics to watch. He is bizarrely creative and hilarious. The real deal.” – Marc Maron

I’m not totally losing my mind getting ready for the amounts of fun we’re going to have on this tour, but I am very close! If you do not know Jarrod Harris’ stand up comedy, it is like we were separated at birth, born from the same comedic mother. We are not the same, but we definitely both love to go to strange and weird and fun places. I am a fan of his and I think you will also be a fan if not already.
More details and clearer information on certain venue are coming very soon!
