As someone who never met an extracurricular activity he didn’t like, Basil Harris felt right at home with this month’s genre-bender feature. At some point or other, he’s been a sketch writer for stage, TV and radio, a screenwriter, script doctor, writer of online greeting cards, producer, copywriter, arts and film advocate, musician and actor. He was recently seen on stage in Cloud Nine at Strawberry Theatre Workshop, the cast of which made The Stranger Genius Awards short list for theatre. He can be seen in the upcoming feature films Knights of Badassdom, Safety Not Guaranteed and 21 and Over. He lives in Seattle with his family and no pets.
