Jamison hails from San Bernardino, CA. Most people would consider him to be just another Actor/Writer/Producer, but he likes to think of himself as a modern day minstrel spreading stories across the land. When he was Fifteen, he was awarded a scholarship to train in musical theatre at Idyllwild Arts Academy in a quaint mountain town in Southern California. In 2005 he co-founded a non-profit, The Sandbox Theatre Company, where he held the position of artistic director. He produced three full scale productions and five smaller events across the country, gave ten young writers the opportunity to see their work onstage, and raised over $24,000. He did all this during his summers off while pursuing his BFA in Musical Theatre at The Hartt School in West Hartford, CT. His goal in life is to entertain millions of people through the art of storytelling, collaboration, and inspiration.
After spending most of her life on the stage bringing other peoples’ art to life, Patricia McCarthy decided to turn the tables and start taking the helm creatively. As a burlesque performer throughout CT, MA, and NYC, she builds her act concepts (including choreography, costumes, make-up, and wigs) from the ground up and won both 1st Runner up and The Lady Naboombu Memorial Award at the Bon Appetit Burlesque Tassle Tussle in Northampton, Ma in 2013. Patricia first started flexing her writing muscles by taking to Twitter where she learned how to craft the perfect joke.
