Quotes & Highlights

“Writer-Actor-Comedian Ralph Harris is a clever writer, and a very funny man. His eloquent and affectionate portrait of his feisty 94-year old grandfather is a comic gem, strongly rooted in reality.”_ —LA Weekly_

“Despite the comedy, the show is painfully real - a stinging commentary on the millions of neglected boys who grow up never knowing their dads.” _-Charlotte Observer_
“Comedian Harris knows how to make an audience laugh … But in MANish BOY, it’s his ability to make the audience relate to the neighborhood characters and friends that make those laughs much more memorable and side splitting.” —Gaston Gazette
