Allison Daniel Puppeteer Enamored with puppets since a young age, she in the past several years has pursued it as a career. While living in the midwest she would routinely work with many of the major Chicago production houses, recently including Chicago Dramatist's "10 Virgins," and Blair Thomas' production, "The Ox-Herder's Tale". Other Companies she has worked for include The Joffery ballet, The Marriott Theatre of Lincolnshire and Redmoon Theatre. In the spring of 2008 she was nominated for a Non-Equity Joseph Jefferson Award for her Puppet design of “The Nutcracker” with The House Theatre of Chicago. Her Puppets were featured on the 2009 Spring/ Summer issue of Puppetry International in their 40 under 40 issue. The Puppets she builds are as varied as the performances for which they were created. She has built 18” toys, to a six and a half foot tall body puppet, and many in between and beyond. See more at www.onefleacircus.com

This Fire eating, Burlesque performer may appear to have an icy exterior...but watch her work the stage and it is apparent she smolders within.

Brian Fields Host Dr. Fields (yes, this guy has a PHD) funny, outrageous, and shocking comedy has made him stand out in the San Francisco Comedy scene and is considered to be the new Lenny Bruce (at least one person said so).
