Center Stage: Ray Harrington
Ray Harrington is a fan of marketing and burritos. I know this because we once sat down and ate burritos and talked marketing before he did a set in NYC.
The New England native is also a pretty hilarious stand-up comedian and I’m sure he’d much rather you know this characteristic over the previous two. Harrington just recorded his first stand-up comedy album and will be releasing it on Stand Up! Records in a few months. “I’m happy to be on a label with such great comics and to work with Dan [Schlissel, owner Stand Up! records]. He’s a great guy and a genuine fan of comedy.”
In addition to working across the country, Harrington is working on a run of shows in London in the Spring. Harrington told The Laugh Button of his trek to London, “I really like seeing how my comedy is received in England and in every new area I go to. I love performing without a net. I care a great deal about my material, but when I can bring people into the moment and take things to a place none of us expected, that’s exciting.
Earlier this year Harrington added award winning filmmaker to his resume in the Providence 48 Hour Film Festival where he won “Best Film,” and “Best Actor” for his short film, Relax. This March he’ll head to LA for the Filmapalooza Film Festival in hopes to gather more awards for Relax.
