ABOUT THE PERFORMERS:
I Eat Pandas is a musical improv group consisting of two kick-ass, amazing singers (Eliza Skinner & Glennis McMurray) and a really fan-frickin-tastic pianist (Travis Ploeger). They do what it takes Andrew Lloyd Weber YEARS to do... crap out a musical from start to finish. Their musicals range from 5 to 40 minutes and come complete with dancing, dramatic glances, passion and suspense! And it's all based on a one-word audience suggestion and is COMPLETELY MADE UP ON THE SPOT.
Craig Baldo, the DJ has worked the turn tables at parties for Amanda Peet, Sam Rockwell and Peter Dinklage. He¹s a huge name dropper and knows music better than your mother. He just spun one of his mixes at Bumbershoot in Seattle opening for Janeane Garofalo. He’s the real dillio, and he writes his own bios. So back that thang up! You can find him at www.craigbaldo.com.
Seth Herzog a comic and actor living in the big bad apple hosts and produces a weekly show called Sweet at the Slipper Room, where he performs along side his mom and my old buddy Mike Showalter every week.
