For Harris

This image portrays For Harris by Addiction Poetry.

One of my favorite writers of all-time was an underrated talent behind the likes of Parks and Recreation, Eastbound and Down, and the Humblebrag Twitter account.

Harris Wittels was a brilliant, preternaturally gifted comedian and writer. I followed his work closely while he was alive – simultaneously amazed at his talent and jealous beyond belief of him.

Tragically, Harris passed away of a heroin overdose a few years ago. Before he did, he went on comedy podcast You Made It Weird and told his addiction story, in full.

It’s one of the most powerful addiction stories I’ve ever heard, multiplied by its tragic ending. I felt it worth sharing on this website. Rest in peace, Harris. I hope your story helps a fellow addict.
