Harris Goldberg was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, a place where you were either cold, depressed or funny. Harris was blessed with all three, and started doing stand-up at age 14. Following his older brother, Daniel, to L.A., he has enjoyed a successful film-writing career (including Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo; The Master Of Disguise and Without A Paddle).
After something akin to a nervous breakdown, he took a major right turn in 2006, writing the very personal and autobiographical Numb, his first feature film as director, which is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival. The project quickly attracted a terrific cast and, through the cathartic and intense process, Harris says his proudest moment was when he heard himself labeled ""an actor's director."" Harris is shooting his second feature this spring.
