Tim Manley is the writer and illustrator of Alice in Tumblr-land: And Other Fairy Tales for a New Generation, out now from Penguin and optioned for TV by Twentieth Century Fox. His first one-person show will debut at the New York International Fringe Festival this August. It’s titled Feelings, because why pretend it’s about anything else?
Marc L. Abbott is a Brooklyn-based fiction writer, playwright and storyteller. He’s an old-school Tell It’er who’s shared stories on a ton of other stages across NYC including Barbershop Stories, Word the Storytelling Show, The Griot Show, The Lost and Found Show, and others. Marc is currently hard at work on his first solo show. Check him out at www.WhoIsMarcAbbott.com.
Blaise Allysen Kearsley is the creator, producer, and host of the How I Learned series, and has performed stories for The Moth, The Soundtrack Series, RISK!, and Literary Death Match, among many others. Her writing has appeared in VICE, The Nervous Breakdown, Midnight Breakfast, The Weeklings, two anthologies, and some other places a long time ago that are perhaps not worth mentioning by name. Visit her at www.bazima.com.
Nisse Greenberg is the creator and storyteller behind Bad Feelings, Drawn Out Storytelling, and VHS Presents. He hosts VHS Presents monthly with Angel Yau and the other ones he does when he has the energy. He’s probably working on a new project right now. His solo-show “Eighth Grade” was pretty good. He’s been on shows like Story Collider, The Liar Show, Soundtrack Series, Geeking Out, TOLD, Ask Me etc… He likes talking about basketball, but probably has a lot of insecurities around you if you also like talking about basketball.
