Comedian Harry Wright develops their hour Smalltown Boy, which was due to appear at VAULT Festival last year. Since then, this hour inspired by an autistic’s soundtrack to self discovery and authenticity now includes a few bonus tracks.
This is Smalltown Boy: The Remix.
A celebration of queerness and not ‘fitting in’.
Harry explores their autism and their sexuality, and how these intersect with their class identity, growing up in a deprived area of Yorkshire. Harry has never been able to find a good male role model and examines how sex, relationships and music have helped them become a better man, in theory anyway. Plus, numerous dick jokes.
Harry is a BBC New Comedy Awards Nominee and a Finalist of 2Northdown New Act of the Year 2019, Max Turner Prize 2020 and Bath Comedy Festival New Act 2021, as well as the first ever online Winner of the Comedy Store's King Gong 2020.
You may have seen Harry perfrom as part of gigs like, 21Soho Presents... LGBTQ+ History month special and Dave's Disabled Comedians Showcase produced by Phil McIntyre Entertainments.
Harry was set to perform their debut hour Smalltown Boy at VAULT Festival 2022
and after the festival's cancellation, Harry enjoyed rescheduled dates at Stanley Arts, Greenwich Theatre, Laurels Theatre @ Whitley Bay.
Harry was a Recipient of the Brighton & Hove Pride Bursary for Brighton Fringe 2022
