Stars of TV and Comedy on Right Between the Ears

KANSAS CITY, MO – The award-winning comedy show
Right Between the Ears will uncork another
night of "audiofoolery" in a live performance
at the 2015 HEAR Now Festival – Friday, June 12
at 8:00pm at the Heartland Forum Theatre
(formerly the American Heartland Theatre) in
Crown Center, Kansas City.

Special guests for this performance are David
Ossman, a founding member of the legendary
comedy troupe the Firesign Theatre; and Barbara
Rosenblat, the "Meryl Streep of audiobooks" and
one of the stars of TV's Orange Is the New

The HEAR Now Festival is the audio equivalent
of a film festival for contemporary
storytelling in all its forms: classic radio
theatre, audiobooks, experimental narrative and
more. The four-day festival, June 11-14, will
offer numerous live and recorded performances
at venues throughout Kansas City.

Poet, comedian, voice artist, producer,
anthologist, teacher - David Ossman has worn a
dizzying number of hats in his nearly forty
years of work in the audio medium. A founding
member of the comedy troupe the Firesign
Theatre, he's co-created over 20 albums. David
has produced programs for National Public
Radio, American Public Media, WETA in
Washington, D.C., WGBH in Boston, MA and
Pacifica. His voice credits stretch from the
1960s right up through Pixar's A Bug's Life and
the animated series The Tick.

With over 400 audiobook titles to her credit,
Barbara Rosenblat has been named one of
Audiofile Magazine's "Golden Voices". She's
appeared in London's West End theatre, worked
for the BBC, British film and television and
performed on Broadway in the Tony Award-winning
musical The Secret Garden and the critically
acclaimed revival of Eric Bogosian's Talk Radio
starring Liev Schrieber. On TV, Barbara
portrays Miss Rosa on the Netflix series Orange
Is the New Black and has appeared on Veep, Law
and Order SVU, Tales of the Unexpected and The
Guiding Light.
