Born in the UK, Harry had barely left the womb before he started juggling a soccer ball. Sport and the arts ran parallel in his life, only ever asking for the same two Christmas presents every year: the latest Portsmouth FC shirt, and a brand new magic set.
From keepie-uppies to disappearing coins, Harry knew that he would eventually have to decide between his two loves. Ultimately, the decision wasn’t too difficult – with an offer to study a Diploma of Acting at WAAPA in 2019, he pursued the greater of his two passions: performing.
The following year, Harry found himself on the other side of The Nullarbor undertaking his three-year Acting degree at NIDA. It is here that both shaped and nurtured his love for improvisation, and emphasised his passion for comedy. With a lifelong love and fascination with the art of stand-up, the Sydney comedy scene has been inspiring Harry and he looks to continue to explore the world of stand-up throughout his career.
