Harris Wittels

Harris Wittels is the founder of the world famous Comedy Bang Bang feature Harris’ Foam Corner. While nothing else in his career is near that impressive, there are a few other footnotes. For instance, he wrote for The Sarah Silverman Program, Eastbound & Down, and Parks and Recreation. And he runs the popular Twitter site Humblebrag. And he plays drums for Don’t Stop or We’ll Die. But mostly he just does Foam Corner.
