Heart Of Darkness feat.
“Barris’s show features crazed comedy, live music and bizarro antics — a mixture that landed it its 20th sold-out show in a row in Brooklyn.” - LA Times
"It's just very weird and very funny...really hilarious, cool, fresh approach" - Reggie Watts
” … a consistently sold-out fixture of the downtown New York stand-up comedy scene, created by visionary Greg Barris, destined to have you transmogrified into pure laughter under the sorcerial powers of Heart of Darkness.” - LA Weekly
“at the bimonthly, bicoastal comedy event called Heart of Darkness, the atmosphere is more of a communal gathering. Comics share their jokes almost campfire-style, backed with a house band that can shift the mood from light-hearted to trippy to introspective” - Village Voice
Greg Barris with Mother of Three
Greg Barris is a staple in New York’s downtown stand-up scene and is the creator of Heart Of Darkness 'The World's Most Important Live Event': a psychedelic showcase of comedy, live music and fringe scientists that has been a frequent Time Out New York critic’s pick, much loved by BrooklynVegan and hailed as ‘Excellent’ by The New Yorker. PAPER describes him as “the perfect combination of very good looking, hilarious and super-weird."
“Greg Barris is the kind of man who believes the Universe tilts toward Justice AND that a quote from me means something. What a dear sweet fool.” - Janeane Garofalo
“Greg Barris takes his audiences to places they’ve never been before, inside the heart of a man who cares so much, you can taste his pain. Then he turns you around and covers you with his joy, just like in one of those sex movies, only its standup comedy.” - Rory Scovel
“Greg Barris strong and make people happy with charm powers. He good friend and tell good jokes. One time he help me kill hunger with pizza. His comedy best because him say stories that mostly true. Him like girls as much as I do and that make for fun talks. Because of Greg New York and LA is better place.” - Reggie Watts
