Dan Harmon is a funny guy. He's so difficult to work with he's been fired twice from television shows he created, most recently from his cult hit sitcom Community. "He's like a human hand-grenade with a predilection for pulling his own pin," explains John Oliver (who acted in Community). His fans love him, though. Now unemployed, Harmon embarks on a 20-city comedy tour of America, recording improvised episodes of his podcast Harmontown for his famously loyal adoring audiences. He's funny, but there's a darkness too. Just as likely to tell jokes as he is to drunkenly tell you he hates himself, there's something magnetic about watching him sort himself out. Director Neil Berkeley deftly navigates the complicated character with expert skill, creating a portrait as layered and entertaining as Harmon himself. Ultimately, Harmontown seems like a hard place to live, but an enlightening place to visit.
