Eric Schwartz's razor sharp, adults-mostly, on-the-spot wit combined with his exceptional musicality have made him a stand-out performer when appearing on the Comedy Central Stage (in Sit'n Spin); with comedy masters like Jim Norton, Rich Vos, Bobby Slayton and Jim Florentine on "The Bad Boys of Comedy;" at clubs (The Improv, The Comedy Store, The Ice House), on the radio (Howard Stern 100, NPR's All Things Considered, Doctor Demento, and Air America), and on the web, where his edgy, political YouTube videos chalk up millions of hits and garner him illicit proposals from all corners of the globe
This Melbourne based singer-songwriter became involved in secular activism over two years ago, despite her father being the president of a local synagogue. Her songs are a passionate response to dogmatic belief, inequality, religious oppression and the idea that only the devout can be grateful and good. She enjoys bringing this usually controversial topic to the public discourse and finds music to be a effective medium for expression and raising awareness. "I can say what I think for three minutes without anybody interrupting me." (Melbourne Times City Weekly)
'An Atheist Album' gives a voice to the often underrepresented views of non-religious people, the fastest growing minority in many countries. As one youtube fan wrote, "I can always come home and listen to Shelley remind us all that we have a voice and a movement of our own, and that there is hope for the future." After performing this year at the 'Reason Rally' to a crowd of 25,000 in Washington DC, Segal's music video for her single 'Saved' has gone global.
Arrive 6pm - 7pm for drinks and social hour. Dinner is served at 7:15. The show starts at 7:30pm.
Spread the word! All secularists, skeptics, humanists and atheists are invited!
