IAN HARVIE SUPERHERO
IAN HARVIE SUPERHERO. Directed by Liam Sullivan. USA. 2012. 70 min. English
Ian Harvie’s debut stand-up comedy concert film, Superhero, is the culmination of his very personal journey of having been born a girl and later becoming a self-made man. It’s Ian’s facile sense of ease, not just his gender-bending presence that makes his humor groundbreaking; and has lead him to make history on more than one occasion. It’s these very qualities that attracted the notorious Margaret Cho to publicly rave about Ian’s work and have him as her opening act for years. Ian is ‘quite possibly the most unique comic in the country’ says Frontiers Magazine and yet his jokes strike the core of all shared human experiences.
