Ninety per cent of what men wear is "some trousers". We're not wise, or in touch with nature, or down with it.People think that laughter is not intimate, but what it actually does is it opens you up to receive new information.”The net effect, he’s observed, is that audiences might not fully internalize all of his material in the moment but “they do go home and they inevitably have a frame of reference for who some trans people are.”By being so open about his own personal experiences of being transgender, Harvie explains to me, he is “really annoyingly making people love [him] so they can’t hate [him].”“You can’t hate someone once you know their story,” he says.Ian Harvie’s standup special May the Best Cock Win is available on Seeso and now on digital audio.
