This Month's Tellers:

Eden Nameri.jpeg


Thirty years ago, Eden accidentally walked into Diane Wolkstein’s storytelling class and has been telling stories on purpose ever since. Her Bible stories incorporate traditional and original midrash — short stories that fill gaps in the larger tale.


Elaine deems herself cool and tells funny true stories, often about sex or dating but in the best way! She wants to represent older women and have people look at her demographic differently.


For 2 years, stage and film actor, and recording artist George has been appearing as the Mayor of Gander in the Toronto cast of Come From Away.  Now, he waits.


Darlene Chrissley is a writer, performer, explorer and master coach.  She was looking forward to spending this summer on stage at the Hamilton and Toronto Fringe Festivals and but like so many of our plans this has been put on hold and she is learning to live with the disappointment.


Dan Rosen is a Toronto-based comedian and filmmaker. He toured his one-person comedic storytelling show Game of Crohn's across Canada to rave reviews of "instantly likeable" and "literal toilet humour.


Christel Bartelse is an actor, writer, producer, clown, teacher and comedian, known for her five solo shows which have toured across Canada, the US and twice to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.  She is the creator of the Podcast all KIDding and cohost/coproducer of Chris and Christel’s Collection at the Peacock Pub. She’s terrible at updating her website but check her out at christelbartelse.com


Briane Nasimok is a Gemini-nominated writer, comedian, producer and the creator/performer of Fringe favourite, “Confessions of an Operatic Mute”. A current member of the Storytelling Toronto Board, his television credits range from YTV’s “Uh Oh” to MTV’s “Test Pattern”.  Briane had a previous career as a Canadian film star, which is why most people don’t know him.   He also has a website – brianenasimok.com.
