  • Neshama Franklin, “Anne Rosenbaum, Manager Extraordinaire”

A B O U T   T H E   P E R F O R M E R S

Julia Jackson is a comedienne and solo artist. She has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and comedy clubs nationwide.  Her one-woman show “Children Are Forever: All Sales Are Final” won the Best Non-Fiction Show Award at the 2016 United Solo Festival in New York City.  

Paul Sussman developed his approach to melodrama and farce through years of work in financial management with Bay Area nonprofit organizations. He has written and performed a series of solo pieces through the eyes of road-ragers, insects, Anabaptists, cannibals, and others who persist in the search for meaning midst the puzzling evidence. 

Neshama Franklin tells every chance she can get, from around the campfire to Moth grand slams. This is her 10th TIOT performance. Check out more of her stories on Youtube, her radio show on KWMR, and her book review blog from the Marin County Library where she works.

Eva Schlesinger’s writing has appeared in over sixty publications, including the Chicken Soup For The Soul anthology, Thanks To My Mom. She has featured at BATS Improv, Weekday Wanderlust, and Lip Service West. Eva is a two-time Moth StorySLAM winner, and has been a Grand SLAM contender on The Moth Stage, where she made the audience of 1,400 laugh nonstop.

MUSIC: Kate Brubeck (vocals), and Geoff Van Linden (guitar)

A B O U T   T H E   P E R F O R M E R S

Kate Brubeck, no relation to Dave, is an editor, coach, and writing consultant with a stealth singing practice, with a range including classical music, traditional Irish music, show tunes, jazz standards, folk, Americana, country, and the odd original. Geoff Van Lienden has been playing the guitar professionally since the 60's. More recently he has been playing jazz as well as celtic/fusion music with Colm O'Riain. He has studied with teachers as diverse as rock guitarist Joe Satriani and jazz guitarist Brian Pardoe.

Jeff Byers has appeared several times at Tell It on Tuesday over the years (Thank you Rebecca and Bridget!). He has also told at numerous other venues, but most often at the Asian Art Museum, where he is a storyteller and storytelling coach.

Melissa Hobbs is a graduate of the EPIC storytelling program at Stagebridge in Oakland, CA. She tells stories to children in spiritual virtues training, and tells uplifting stories in the Bay Area and Northern California. Her favorites are biographies of women of excellence. She also tells tales of her own life Ohio and Bodega.

Dr. Melinda Ginne grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles, the granddaughter of four Russian emigres. All of whom had escaped the pogroms in Russia 105 years ago. This story is about her father’s family who emigrated to Montreal Quebec.

Dana Sherry was once a respectable historian of Russia until she turned to a life of storytelling. Today, she is the resident storyteller at the Silk Road House in Berkeley and produces “The Caravan of Stories,” a monthly storytelling series featuring the traditional tales of Central Asia.

According to her family, Gerry Keenan’s been 'telling stories' since she could talk. It's only since taking her first storytelling class at Stagebridge that she realized what an art form a well-told story is. This is Gerry's first theater performance. Her other life? Retired non-profit exec. Now? Photographer/writer/budding storyteller and proud mother of three adult children.
