Ian Harvie

Ian Harvie is comedian and actor.

Harvie is a known for being a groundbreaking transgender comedian and was Margaret Cho’s opening act from 2006-2009. He has since become a cross-country headliner unafraid to joke about subjects no other comedian has touched.

In 2013, Harvie, with the help of Executive Producer Cho, released his first-ever live standup comedy concert film, titled Ian Harvie Superhero, where he pokes fun at topics from his own top surgery, to fears of public restrooms, to his active sex life.

Harvie’s unique act queers the traditionally macho, sex-obsessed world of stand up in ways you won’t believe, proving that laughter cuts across all gender identities and ultimately unites us all.

 Ian Harvie is a co-star on Transparent on Amazon Prime. Written and directed by Jill Soloway.
