01/28/20 - David Harvey Presents

We're flipping the format of the showcase this time to bring in the NY (Saturnalia is over-rated). with a Literary Revel of three Brilliant Storytellers doing 2 short sets with an incredible Songwriter in-between.


Dylan Brody….an award winning playwright, a thrice published author, a humorist and a story-teller. He's a writer for the Huffington Post and a new contributor to NPR's OffRamp on KPCC. Dylan has been twice featured on the hit WTF Podcast hosted by Marc Maron. His fans that include comedic legends such as Carl Reiner, Robin Williams, David Sedaris, Roseanne Barr and Richard Lewis. Dylan has earned a reputation as one of America’s fastest rising storytellers. Dylan's Website.

Alex Stein… America's Comedy calls Alex Stein "a masterful storyteller who peppers his tales with humor, soul, and a top-notch wit". His Essay collection No, Mister Bond, I Expect Your Dreams To Die! is available around the world {and here tonight). He's also an award-winning documentary film maker and he curated, hosted, and produced the weekly Muse Literary Salon storytelling show for two-and-a-half years until he realized no one should do that. His hobbies include fixing second act problems in exchange for triple creme-cheese and standing in bars, coffee shops, and theaters, telling stories of heartache, longing, and loss. 

Vicki Judith... has performed her original stories at theaters, temples, and festivals across the country and beyond, including the National Storytellling Festival in Jonesborough, TN, The Aspen LAFF Festival, and the Jewish Arts Festival of Hong Kong. In Los Angeles, she performs regularly with many spoken word series, such as Speakeasy, Tasty Words, Jewish Women's Theater, I Love a Good Story, Tales by the Sea, Spark, Expressing Motherhood, and The LA Storytelling Festival. On TV she has sold everything from Good Kitty Pet Beverage to birth control pills and guest-starred on Storytime, Everybody Loves Raymond, YES, DEAR, and My Name is Earl. Her many personal essays on environmental matters have appeared in the online publications MAD AS HELL CLUB and ECO-PERKS. Vicki's Facebook.

And Our Featured Songwriter...Songwriter/vocalist Amy Engelhardt loves words, music and laughter (and also garlic). From 1998-2011, Amy was the sole female member of Grammy-nominated, genre-busting "band without instruments" The Bobs. As a composer/lyricist, Amy made her Off-Broadway debut in 2017 with Bastard Jones, an Off-Broadway Alliance Best New Musical nominee. TimeOutNY called the sold-out smash “smartly plotted and irrepressible, with hummable pop music to match.” Amy’s vocal credits include the films Jurassic World, Real Steel and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes as well as live appearances ranging “from Bach to rock.” During the holidays, she joins Harry Shearer (The Simpsons) and Judith Owen in their Christmas Without Tears shows and is featured on their EP alongside Catherine O’Hara and Jane Lynch. As Mother Superior of the (satanic) Chattering Order of St. Beryl in Amazon Prime’s Good Omens promo campaign, last spring, Amy led a gaggle of rock-belting nuns through the series premieres in London, New York, LA and Austin’s South by Southwest. She also produced their EP Unholy Night, released on Amazon Music. Amy is the only honorary female member of the Vienna Boys Choir. Amy's Website.
