Abby Ehmann (Photograph by Alex Colby)

Abby Ehmann, or EditrixAbby, has lived in Manhattan since 1985. She’s had a million jobs, from badmaid to pornographer and back again with stints as an event producer (Click + Drag, Kitsch Inn, Mondo Porno) and advertising copywriter, among others. She works for Burning Man three months a year, which makes her feel badass because that desert shit is no joke. She used to get paid to write. Now that no one’s getting paid to write (or much, anyway) she spends her time making things no one is buying, online dating and working really, really hard at becoming a bitter old cunt. Which is all pretty amusing, actually.

James Bradford

Comedian and singer James Bradford is best known for portraying himself . . . sort of . . . on the VH1/LOGO television series “Can’t Get a Date.” He has toured the globe with his ragtag band “The Mana-Mana’s,” and his sold out Fringe show “Thick!” drew in crowds from as far away as the bar downstairs from the stage. He’s been a musical theater queen, a DJ and for two years a professional cocksucker. Combining wry observations on pop culture with his unique brand of queer-eye-hilarity, his stories will leave you shaking your head. Whether it’s in laughter or confusion is really irrelevant.

Nisse

Nisse Greenberg

Nisse Greenberg talks to his friends over the phone when he can, but relies on email too much. He’s trying to stop that. It makes him feel like they’re disconnected, y’know? He hosts this show called Bad Feelings that’s really interesting and Jefferson is going to be on the next one which is March 27th, so you should come! It’s part of a weekly storytelling series that he is the curatorial manager for at The Tank Theater. Talk to him after the show if you wanna get involved. He also used to produce this show called Drawn Out Storytelling that he’ll probably do some more work with in the future. He likes beginnings, gets confused by endings and has a hard time getting through the middle.

Jon founded and was executive director of three nonprofit organizations over a twenty-year period:  an AIDS prevention organization targeting sex workers and IV-drug users, another providing support to and advocacy for LGBT youth, and a thrift store benefiting the LGBT community. Jon’s unusual life – frequent long-distance hitchhiking, living on $300 a month, not paying rent or a mortgage since 1980, refusing to pay federal income taxes since 1981 as a conscientious objector to war, having bipolar disorder—provides fodder for his material, as does his hypersexuality (psychiatric term for “slut”).

Her familiar personality on and off stage has allowed her to build quite the buzz in and around Boston comedy circles.

Still, Victoria is not new to performing, with her first role at age eight in Young Chautauqua as General George Custer. The company’s only female to portray a male, Victoria just loves the facial hair—it’s like bonsai of the face. Her collegiate theatrical training included acting, improv and stage make-up. Since moving to Washington, DC from Nevada, Victoria was in The Firm’s production of the Vagina Monologues in 2010 and 2011. Victoria has fallen in love with storytelling and is hoping, with some encouragement, to attempt stand-up in the near future.

In 1992 Tan founded Circlet Press, a category-busting independent press that mixes science fiction/fantasy with erotica. She is the author of Black Feathers, White Flames, The Prince’s Boy, Mind Games, Edge Plays, Telepaths Don’t Need Safewords, the Magic University series, and many other books, and her short stories have appeared in Ms. Magazine, Nerve, Best American Erotica, Asimov’s Science Fiction, and tons of other places.

Diana currently runs an older youth organization in the Boston Metro Area.

Shari VanderWerf

Shari VanderWerf is a Boston-based writer and stand-up comedian. Her work has appeared on television and in a host of international publications.
