Jeff Harms is an artist who deals in words and wit. He sails the world on a stage, regularly performing his family-friendly stylings of observational comedy for audiences from around the globe aboard cruise liners. Among other things.
Jeff, 64, is married to the actress Hannah Rockey, whom he has performed and taught improv comedy with for many years. The couple also collaborates in work for Millibo Art Theatre in Colorado Springs. Jeff writes plays that Hannah brings to life on stage.
When he sat down with Humanitou in the quiet storefront studio of his father-in-law, the artist C.H. “Rockey” Rockey, he shared insights on the craft of comedy and the best joke ever written. Rockey sat nearby, quietly listening.
We talked about money, art, war, and what Jeff has observed as a universal truth about humanity while living much of the past 22 years aboard ships.
