“Are We There Yet?” 3 Funny Storytellers
A Benefit for the Parent Child Center of Addison County
Thursday, January 29th
“Are We There Yet” joins award-winning storytellers Sue Schmidt, Kevin Gallagher and Cindy Pierce, as they share their experiences of life on three bumpy and hilarious roads growing up, falling down, shaking off, and eventually learning to rinse and repeat… This trio comes together for their first performance in a series designed to promote the power of comedic storytelling while raising funds and awareness for mission-driven organizations serving children and families throughout New England. They are thrilled to be working in partnership with The Addison County Parent Child Center*.
Cindy Pierce is a comic storyteller, speaker, innkeeper and mom. Cindy performs her solo shows Comfort in the Stumble, Finding the Doorbell and The Truth About Intimacy: An Upgraded Version of “The Talk” in the (Mis)Information Age. Cindy is the co-author of Finding the Doorbell: Sexual Satisfaction for the Long Haul. Cindy is represented by Kirkland Productions as a college speaker. Combining outrageous humor and years of research, she enlightens a wide variety of audiences about healthy sexual relationships.With three kids storming into their teens, Cindy is a bit of a social liability for them, but her husband, Bruce, keeps the family grounded. Cindy and Bruce live in Etna, N.H., where they own and run Pierce’s Inn.
Many moons ago Kevin Gallagher kissed the Blarney Stone and according to legend it left him with the gift of gab. As a 100%
Irish-American, he enjoys the qualities of both cultures: family, story and humor. Kevin’s style attempts to lift the spirits of the crowd as well as leave them with a little something-something as a take away. As a Moth story slam finalist, an international educational speaker and mental health consultant, there is little time for Kevin’s true passion…yet to be determined. Kevin is a psychotherapist in Burlington, Vermont. He is in awe of the privilege of being so graciously invited into the lives of others, so he shares his life as appreciation.
Susanne Schmidt is a stand-up comic and comedic storyteller. She has performed in the Boston Women in Comedy Festival and the Green Mountain Comedy Festival. A recent winner of the Vermont Moth Story Slam and a two-time host, Susanne has won both Vermont’s Extempo and New England Public Radio’s Valley Voices story slams. She is a member of the Vermont Comedy Divas and is the founder of the “Divas Do Good” and “Tell Me Something Good” fundraising collaborations.
