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

Laura Wiley sings and plays flute in various Bay Area groups, such as Resonance Jazz Ensemble and the Laura Wiley Electrical Quartet, which will be performing at the Geoff Van Lienden has played guitar professionally since the 60's. Early years included R & B cover bands, rock and roll groups and folk music with friends. More recently he plays jazz with various vocalists and instrumental groups, and celtic/fusion music with Colm O'Riain.

Lisa Rothman’s show "Date Night at Pet Emergency" was extended three times at the Marsh in Berkeley and SF. In addition to raising children, Lisa’s other adventures include producing KPFA’s Morning Show when Andrea Lewis and Philip Maldari were the co-hosts, hosting a nationally distributed radio show at a food truck park, and ballroom dancing in China. She currently helps everyone, from construction workers to scientists, make better presentations and figure out next steps with important projects and their careers.

Joshua A. Hattam dropped out of school in the seventh grade to pursue a life of crime. He learned to write while serving over a decade behind bars. His writing has been featured in “Out of the Gutter” and “Bareknuckles Pulp.” He lives in San Francisco, with his fiancé, their two dogs, and cat. He is finishing his first book, a memoir, The Fireman Song.

By day Jared Karol is a leadership development coach and diversity & inclusion facilitator–working at the intersection of purpose, storytelling, and belonging. By night, he is usually sleeping–unless he is playing music in a variety of local bands and venues, experiencing the urban serendipity of the Bay Area, or hanging out with his partner and nine-year-old twins.

Enid Hunkeler is a medical scientist. After 40 years at Kaiser Permanente, she retired last year, and began her encore career as a comedic writer. Enid was egged on by her mentor, one of the original leaders of Kaiser. Her colleagues blackmailed over the years into performing her satirical plays rejoiced. Raised in New York, Enid’s on-stage experience began and ended in the late 60’s when she was the highest paid go-go dancer in Boston. Enid likes to write about serious issues from a comedic viewpoint. As a new performer, like Blanche DuBois (A Streetcar Named Desire), Enid “relies on the kindness of strangers.”

Kenny Yun is currently developing his fifth solo show. He is a coach, director, and solo performance teacher at The Marsh. Kenny has an English Literature degree from UC Berkeley. Kennyyun.com
