The multi-talented Harry Shearer is known first and foremost as an actor and comedian, but that is just the start. The voice of numerous characters on The Simpsons, he was a regular cast member on Saturday Night Live, hosts the public radio program Le Show, and created the role of the bassist Derek Smalls in the ground-breaking mockumentary, This Is Spinal Tap. New Orleanian Shearer directed his debut documentary, The Big Uneasy, which gives us an inside look at the un-natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina.
“Why it took the bass player from Spinal Tap and the voice of
Flanders, Smithers, and Mr. Burns to reveal these tragedies is a
story unto itself.” —Harry Shearer
