"Sam Harris’ diversified career has run the gamut from singer and songwriter to actor on Broadway, film and television to writer, director, producer and now, author. After pulling a weekly audience of more than 25 million viewers and going on to win Star Search in it's premier season, Sam and his powerhouse pop, gospel and theater influenced vocals have never looked back.
He is a multi-platinum recording artist with 9 studio CDs to his credit including SAM HARRIS and SAM-I-AM (both top 40 hits), STANDARD TIME and DIFFERENT STAGES (produced and conducted by the legendary Peter Matz, and which have been listed on numerous “Top 100 Records of All Time” lists.)
Sam has toured extensively in concert and has played to sold-out audiences at major venues including New York’s Carnegie Hall, Los Angeles’ Universal Amphitheatre, London’s West End and with The Boston Pops, has played at The White House, and participated in Cyndi Lauper’s TRUE COLORS tour. On television, Sam starred in the CBS sitcom, THE CLASS and has appeared on multiple series as well as countless television specials. He has been a guest artist on virtually every talk show from Leno to Fallon; his favorite in an historic time, when he performed a stirring “You’ll Never Walk Alone” on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW in the week following September 11th.
On Broadway, Sam received a Tony, Outer Critic’s Circle and Drama Desk nominations for his work in Cy Coleman’s THE LIFE as well as a Drama League Award and Drama Desk nomination for his role in Tommy Tune’s GREASE, and appeared in Mel Brook’s, THE PRODUCERS. He starred in JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, CABARET, JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT, HAIR, PIPPIN, THE JAZZ SINGER, THE FIRST WIVES CLUB, SCHMOOLI & MINNOOLI (with Liza Minnelli) and the smash hit, one man show SAM.

He also co-produced the PBS television special LOVE LETTER TO NEW, supervised and directed segments of MICHAEL JACKSON’S 30TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY at Madison Square Garden, and co-wrote LIZA’S AT THE PALACE, which won the 2009 Tony Award; and created and directed the concert event, NEW YORK’S FINEST – BROADWAY’S LEADING MEN.
In an exciting new chapter of Sam’s career, his 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. He has fashioned a hilarious and poignant one-man show of the same title, which has toured in major cities throughout the country. Both the book and the show are receiving rave reviews in publications from The New York Times to People Magazine, Esquire, and many more.".
