     MICHAEL ANDERSON  is a First Amendment lawyer who talks to audiences in ways they don’t allow in federal court. Next to his wife and son, he loves the essays of George Orwell, the Queen’s Gambit attack in chess, and the first two Clash albums. "There’s no such thing as free speech if you don’t use it!"

     A Midwesterner, H.R. BRITTON has been performing and teaching on the East Coast since 1999.  He loves doing full length solo shows either based on his life ("Jesus Rant" and "Melting in Madras") or based on classic literature (Gogol's "Nose" and "Legend of Sleepy Hollow.") 

     When not telling silly or off-color stories, LIZ MARTIN is using storytelling to educate people about police brutality in Brazil.

     In 2013, New England native WES HAZARD was named as one of “5 Boston Comedians to Watch” by The Boston Globe Magazine. A writer and storyteller as well as comedian, Hazard brings wit, energy and honesty to the stage.
