Sam Harris was born and raised in Sand Springs, Oklahoma. At 15 years old, he left home to pursue a career in entertainment, living in New York and Los Angeles. He has established a multi-hyphenate career, having made his mark as a Tony nominated Broadway star, multi-platinum recording artist, television writer and actor, playwright, and author. His first big break came at the age of 22, when he won the first season of “Star Search.”
Sam’s first book, “HAM: Slices of a Life” (Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster) was released in January 2014. HAM is a collection of stories and essays on everything from growing up in Bible Belt Oklahoma to show biz, celebrity, and his family life as a husband and father. The book received critical praise in publications from The New York Times to People Magazine, Esquire, Kirkus, Publisher’s Weekly, and numerous others.
From the book came a hilarious and poignant one-man show entitled “HAM: A Musical Memoir,” which played in New York and Los Angeles, receiving raves across the board, and won several prestigious awards. The show was filmed at The Pasadena Playhouse to air on television later this year.
Encouraged by numerous reviewers and readers, The Substance of All Things is Sam’s first foray into literary fiction.
“Writing this book has been a four year process: thrilling, arduous, intimidating, scary and so very fulfilling. I am so excited to take it off my lap top and into the hands and hearts of readers.”
Sam lives in Los Angeles with his husband, Danny Jacobsen, and their son, Cooper Harris-Jacobsen.
