Funny Face

Harland Williams is the kind of perennial goofball whose schtick can squeeze laughs out of thin air. With a career in film spanning nearly two decades, Williams doesn’t need to do stand up, as he will this weekend, as much as he enjoys it as one of his many creative outlets.

Prior to popping up in movies, Williams wrote and illustrated a series of children's books that hint at his random sense of humor. Once the likeable Canadian hit celluloid in 1994’s Dumb and Dumber as a flim-flammed state trooper, he ran with his penchant for quirky character acting. If you’ve seen his many late-night talk show appearances, you definitely know the kind of laughs to expect.
