On “The Public John” Comedian John Harris, who generally doesn’t like humans, goes outside his :comfort zone to talk to people. Nothing is off limits., as John talks about and lampoons anything and everyone he wants to. Or if he’s feeling nice, which is rare, he may visit a local business to see what they’re all about, But his hope is he can interact with humans as little as possible. Be ready for sarcasm at it’s finest. It’s John’s Show, so maybe, just maybe, it’ll be fun to watch the train wreck. Like NASCAR, he’s gonna go as fast as he can, then, go left, then go fast again. And probably crash. And who doesn’t want to listen or watch that?
