-The Moth Online-

Five tales of leaping before you look: a breath on the brink before plunging into the deep end. Neither here nor there, metamorphosis or masquerade, the space amidst and among.

Our host:
Dan Kennedy is host of The Moth podcast, a longtime host and performer at Moth live events, and has spent much of the last fifteen years traveling the world performing and writing. His stories have appeared in GQ Magazine, on the Peabody Award-winning The Moth Radio Hour, in McSweeney’s, and in numerous print anthologies. He is the author of three books, Loser Goes First (Random House/Crown 2003), Rock On (Algonquin 2008, a Times of London Book of The Year, series rights bought by HBO) and American Spirit (Houghton Mifflin/Little 2013, a Publishers Weekly starred review). He has been a guest lecturer at Yale, and a guest author at The Harvard Lampoon in celebration of his work anthologized in The Best of McSweeney’s Humor. He lives in downtown New York, where he is currently working on another screenplay.

Our storytellers:
Andy Fischer-Price is a musician and an actor who — for now — lives in Los Angeles. He plays bass and sings in the psychedelic rock group Smoky Knights, is a founding member of folk trio The Good Mad, and occasionally tours with pop-duo Heffron Drive. His most recent work as an actor includes playing a Christian rock singer on ABC's Modern Family and playing a woman in Cameron Fife's Killing Diaz, a dark comedy feature due out in 2017. Andy and his sister, Katie Rose, are currently working with San Diego nonprofit to rebuild the Himalayan English Boarding School in Lukla, Nepal after it was destroyed in the 2015 earthquakes. The new school will be dedicated to their late father, Seattle mountaineer Scott Fischer.

Meg Ferrill is an Oakland-based storyteller, comedian and writer. Meg was selected to perform at Upright Citizen's Brigade Stand-Up Smackdown, Mortified, and Amateur Night at the Apollo. She is a five-time winner of The Moth's StorySLAM and holds one GrandSLAM title. Meg has nabbed a mention in The New York Times, and even caught the attention of documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock who cast Meg in his Webby-nominated series Failure Club, a year-long online documentary featuring seven people pursuing lifelong dreams and conquering the fear of failure in the process.

David Montgomery is a writer, comedian and storyteller based in Los Angeles. Trained in comedy by both a terrible childhood and the Upright Citizens Brigade, David always spins a terrible experience into a story that will make you laugh. He is a multiple Moth StorySLAM winner and has been featured in many curated national live shows, including Risk! with Kevin Allison, The Moth Mainstage and True Story. He now hosts his own comedy podcast, 2 Gays, No Girls, At A Pizza Place, available on iTunes. His autobiographical one man show, How The Queen Found His Crown just debuted to a sold out run and won the Audience Choice at Pittsburgh’s Fringe Festival. You can find videos of many of his performances at He is currently (slowly) working on piecing together his many stories for a collective memoir. Potential titles include War and Peace and How Am I Getting Away With This?, but he is certainly open to suggestions.

Carmen Aguirre has written and co-written twenty-five plays, including Blue Box, The Trigger, and Chile Con Carne, and has eighty film, television, and stage acting credits. Her second memoir, Mexican Hooker #1 and My Other Roles Since the Revolution was published in April 2016 to outstanding reviews, was shortlisted for the Hubert Evans Non-Fiction Prize, and is a Globe and Mail bestseller and a CBC Best Book of 2016. Her first book, the critically-acclaimed Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter, won CBC Canada Reads 2012 and is a #1 national bestseller. In her latest play, Broken Tailbone, she teaches the audience salsa dancing while weaving stories of the history of Latinx dance halls in Canada. Carmen is the recipient of the Hispanic Business Alliance's 2014 “Ten Most Influential Hispanics in Canada Award,” Latincouver's 2014 Most Inspirational Latin Award, the 2014 Betty Mitchell Outstanding Actor Award for her work in Alberta Theatre Projects' The Motherfucker with The Hat, the 2012 Langara College Outstanding Alumna Award, the 2011 Union of B.C. Performers' Lorena Gale Woman of Distinction Award, and the 2002 New Play Centre Award for Best New Play for The Refugee Hotel. Carmen is a graduate of Studio 58.
