Each month, we bring together authors, bloggers, comedians, and performers to share fiction and nonfiction stories involving a theme object that could be found in a lost and found box. We’ve featured burlesque stars, magicians, Moth Grand Slam winners, actors, someone’s mom, and a ukulele player.
For a list of upcoming theme objects, or to submit a story for consideration, visit:
Michael’s plays have won The Festival of Emerging America Theatre Award and have had stage productions from California to New York. His screenplay, The Scam, was a semi-finalist for the Nicholl Fellowship. His storytelling has been described as “vivid and engaging” by the The Indianapolis Star and “extremely funny” by the New York Post. He is the author of the upcoming book, “Your Fifteen Minutes Are Up -The Uncensored Tales of a Real People Casting Director,” and is a member of The American Renaissance Theater Company.
Heather Quinlan is a New Yorker who’s lived in all five boroughs and whose documentary, If These Knishes Could Talk: The Story of the New York Accent has been featured in The New York Times, WSJ, NPR, BBC, NBC, CBS, and in festivals around the country. Her short film, “O Brooklyn! My Brooklyn!” about Walt Whitman’s “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry” was called “charming … an endearing way of making an old poem more relevant” by The New York Times. She also directed Dinner With Wise Guys, a Little Italy spin on IFC’s “Dinner For Five,” and videos for TLC, the Discovery Channel and the Science Channel.
Nicole Dellert is a improviser/writer coming out of UCB. Her early twenties were spent gathering stories from 4 continents, usually as the result of poor decision making skills. Luckily her affinity for “getting dark” is counterbalanced by her love for a great burger. You can catch her performing in basements around town with improv indie teams “Jacuzzi”, “Re:Your Murder Plan”, “Legion of Doom” and indie sketch team “Aunt Jackie”. Or aimlessly wandering at UCB. She shares her regular epiphanies on her Twitter page.
CARLY ANN FILBIN
Carly Ann Filbin is a comedienne lusting and lunching in NYC. She performs all around the city and doesn’t go to the gym as often as she tells people. She hosts Lady Parts, an all female sketch show, the last Saturday of every month at The People’s Improv Theatre. Her improv team Roxanne is there every Monday. Check out her youtube channel, carlyannhasfun, for a new video every week! If you want to see her any other time, go to any dive bar and catch her crying into a glass of house wine. Also, Carly is obsessed with her hair.
Larry has worked at CBS for nearly 30 years and has known since he was a teenager he wanted to spend his life behind the camera. He’s shot for such shows as 48 Hours and As The World Turns, the latter of which has earned him 7 Emmy nominations for his soap camera work. Besides being a TV cameraman, he’s also a DP/cinematographer for documentaries and commercials.
