Harrison Greenbaum


When RECON needed an MC, there was only one person on our list.

Harrison Greenbaum is a comedian and magician who has been featured on many shows, including NBC's America's Got Talent, NBC's Last Comic Standing, TBS's Conan, Comedy Central's This Week at the Comedy Cellar, AXS.TV’s Gotham Comedy Live, and National Geographic Channel's Brain Games. His solo comedy+magic show, Harrison Greenbaum: What Just Happened?, was a NY Times’ Critics Pick, and he’s one of the stars of The Illusionists: Direct from Broadway, the biggest-selling magic show in history.

From colleges to comedy clubs, from talk shows to theaters, Harrison is bringing his unique style of comedy to audiences across the country and around the world, proving each night why publications such as The New York Times called him "a favorite young star on the comedy scene" and his mother describes him as "her favorite (and only) son."

Harrison is the co-creator of SCAM New York (, a first-of-its-kind immersive magic show in Times Square that combines the best magicians in the country with story-driven escape room-style puzzles as you attempt to be initiated into the Society of Conjurers and Magicians, the world’s oldest and most secret society in the world. (It’s supposed to be secret, so forget we even mentioned it.)

Additionally (and the lengthy bio on Harrison’s website won’t tell you this), he isn’t just another world touring comedian/ magician with a degree from Harvard… Harrison has played a lot of escape rooms.
