About the Author

Sam Harris's diversified career has run the gamut from singer and songwriter to actor on Broadway, film, and television to writer, director, and producer. His now legendary performances on TV's Star Search led to a multi-million selling recording career. Sam has nine studio CDs to his credit, is a Tony-nominated Broadway star (The Life, Grease, The Producers), was a series regular on the CBS series The Class, and is the creator of the TBS television series Down to Earth, among others. Sam lives in Los Angeles with his husband, Danny, and their child, Cooper.


"Ham is a fabulous and funny, tasty treat; sweet and savory with just right touch of tang."--Broadway World
"Ham is humorous, soul baring, name dropping, and just the right mix of vulnerability and snarkiness."--Washington Blade
"Reading singer-actor Harris's essays is like having your smartest gay BFF propped up on your pillow sipping cosmos, regaling you with gossip and his keen wit."
"The essays in Ham are both rip-roaringly funny and sentimental, drawing natural (and justified) comparisons to David Sedaris and David Rakoff."--Esquire
"With a wry sense of humor, Harris writes about his life through humorous essays. Touching on everything from parenting to show business, he dishes on the ups and downs of his life through a witty lens."
"This neo-vaudevillian stage persona, Harris has opted to launch Ham the only way he knows how: extravagantly, theatrically and, most of all, big...refreshingly self-effacing observations and playful humor." --The Huffington Post
"Ham is, by turns, harrowing and hilarious, uplifting and soul-shattering, agonizing and liberating." --Oklahoma Magazine
"Ham is honest and heartbreaking, entertaining and devastating all at the same time." --The Steadfast Reader
"Ham is a dishy celebrity memoir combined with profoundly harder things like 9/11, alcoholism, suicide attempts, coming out, marriage and parenting. There is as much hilarity in the book--he knows how to make people laugh, especially at him. He really opens up, showing us his struggles, and has far deeper dimensions that I wasn't expecting when I picked up this book. He's clearly added writing into his stable of talents, and I am hoping folks will give this book a try." --The Tattered Cover
"Ham is a collection of heartfelt, sharply funny memoirs. At a time when other essayists in the style of David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs seem to have scraped the bottom of their autobiographical barrels, Harris arrives with great observational writing chops and a deep well of material to draw upon." --Passport Magazine
