Matt Anderson

Michael Anderson is a First Amendment lawyer.  He thinks: there’s no such thing as free speech if you don’t use it. After he takes off his tie, he talks to audiences in ways they don’t allow in federal court. He has performed in venues from San Francisco to London.

Matt Kona

Matt Kona is a regular on the Boston Comedy Scene, and a fresh voice. Not for the faint of heart, Matt’s dark sense of humor pokes fun at topics from the mundane to the taboo with equal sharpness. He blends absurdist one liners and twisted topical commentary in with bizarre personal stories. He hosts the weekly Comics Coming Up Podcast available on his website and itunes.

Laura Packer

Laura Packer believes storytelling is humanity’s oldest and richest artform. She also believes free speech matters, talking about sex is important and everyone has a naughty story or two stashed somewhere. In addition to telling stories with words that begin with “f,” Laura performs and teaches around the world, helps organizations discover and use story, runs venues, coaches and encourages everyone to listen, tell and create joyfully.

Michael Pope

Michael Pope is a filmmaker whose music videos are in MTV, LOGO and RAGE rotation and have seen premieres on People, Spin and Pitchfork sites. His award winning experimental film Neovoxer united hundreds of artists from the United States and the Czech Republic in a “primal scream of creative expression” and he was once bestowed the title of “Boston’s Best Visual Artist” by the Boston Phoenix. He continues his career as artist and raconteur with his one man show Michael Pope Is Gay For Pay, chronicling his legendary career as a phone sex operator in New York City.
