After giving up a promising artistic roller skating career at age eight to pursue dance, music, outdoor pursuits and an awkward teenage phase as a unicyclist, Saran spent most of her childhood flinging herself into the air and making as much noise as possible. Now a professional swing dancer, she spends most of her adulthood flinging herself into the air and making as much noise as possible, only now she gets paid for it so the moral of that story is she didn't learn anything except to largely ignore good advice from older wiser people. She also did a whole bunch of music at serious music things for a while and people kept laughing, so now she does a whole bunch of music at silly comedy things instead.
Co-creator (or evil genius, depending on who you ask) behind the musical improvisation show Song Sale, 1/5 of the enigmatic Klaus Vermillion Quartet, and international viral sensation as “that sign language lady who flipped off all of parliament”, when she told people she was doing this show called Super Awkward the overwhelming response was “Well that sounds like you.”

Hadley Donaldson is a poster designer/illustrator/animator recently re-based in Wellington after a couple of years in Auckland. It was okay but then Marshall from Rubicon bought his flat and threw everyone out into the street. It was cool. Hadley heads the show Sketch/Comedy, where he live draws comedian's sets. There has been one show so far and it went very well thank you.

Originating from Canada, Rob has found a nice home with NZ stand-up comedy and has become a mainstay on the scene - the highlight of his experience receiving an honorary mention in the 2013 National Raw Comedy Quest finals. A mixture of observational and story-telling, Rob's punchlines seem to come out of nowhere, and tend to come often, always leaving the crowd delighted.
Rob Co-runs one of VK's weekly shows, The Medicine, and if he's not onstage, is definitely making his presence known from the tech booth. Even when he's not on, he's on.

The Watercooler is a platform for people from all walks to tell their stories, both true and imagined, in front of a live audience.

Inspired by many well-known storytelling events and podcasts held worldwide such as The Moth, or This Amercian Life. Host and produced by Alice Brine, created by Sarah Finnigan- Walsh.

This month's theme in Wellington is Smoke and Mirrors, more commonly known as a metaphor for deception and illusion. Fraudulent activity, lies and tricks, smoke and mirrors lurking in the shadows under a bridge wearing a top hat. Witches with potions and merchants whose eyes twitch. However, what is smoke and mirrors in 2016? Rather than black magic, illusion and deception is everywhere. It's in politics, advertising, social propaganda, the terms and conditions that no one actually reads. Just the fact that we're getting really good at filling our eyebrows in using make up is all part of this world we're in where it becomes impossible to tell the difference between truth and lies. Photoshop is the modern smoke and the billboard on the back of the bus is the mirror the smoke blows over.
