Event Description

Storytellers Collaborate with Comedy Improv Troupe!

Storytellers:  H.R. Britton,  Brendyn Scheider and Dan Dahari 

improv troupe:  Improv Jones 


Professional storyspinner and published writer, Brendyn Schneider has been a featured storyteller at the Coolidge Corner Theater, Club OBERON, ImprovBoston, Club Passim, the Lily Pad, and other action-packed venues across New England. Making frequent appearances with Massmouth and the Moth, Brendyn takes his audiences on story-trips of wit through the follies of the every day slog.  His coming-of-age essays, live clips and upcoming appearances can be found at

Dan Dahari was born a pauper to a pawn on an undisclosed date somewhere down in Old Mexico. Taken in by a loving (but overbearing) Jewish woman and her Mossad agent husband he was raised by nurture and the perfect falafel on the mean streets of Boston and New York City.  He was a champion archer by the age of 11.  After a brief stint in the former "City That Reads" (Baltimore) he's returned home to Somerville where he currently lords over Clarendon hill telling tales, teaching the youth and recommending the perfect beer for your current mood.  If you see him say hello (or else you gotta stay all night).

A Midwesterner by upbringing, H.R. Britton has been performing and teaching on the East Coast since 1999.   He loves being involved with the storytelling organization, massmouth.  He is either a host or a participant in many of their events.  In addition, he performs full length solo shows about his own life (Melting in Madras and Jesus Rant) or adapted from anxiously comic literature, (The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, or Nikolai Gogol’s The Nose.) He has performed across North America, and even got flown to India a while back.  He’s very pleased to participate in this massmouth/Improv Jones collaboration.
