Harry Shearer

About the Author


Inside the creative mind of Harry Shearer is a little bit of everyone–including a profoundly overblown heavy metal bass player, the boss of a cartoon nuclear power plant, a cloying suburban neighbor, an unctuous television anchor, and Richard M. Nixon, among many others. Shearer is not a legendary schizophrenic. Rather, he’s one of America’s foremost humorists, observers, and chroniclers of contemporary lives. Whether he’s playing a role in a major motion picture, writing a screenplay, creating a comedy television show, or performing on radio, it’s his job to out both the humor and humanity that always, he believes, dwell within.
