UnCabaret performers, besides being funny, great storytellers, unique voices, TV stars and lovely humans, are all fluent in the language of now. Mindful, present and accounted for. This week we actually have a meditation teacher among us.
Missi Pyle is our BFF! Recently named one of the most prolific actors on Hollywood by New York Magazine, Missi is a big hearted Southern Belle, actress and singer (Inside Amy Schumer, Two and a Half Men, The Artist, Gone Girl) and also a new Mom! Hearts a flutter, Missi’s here!

Other films include, Safety Not Guaranteed (Duplass Bros.), The Kings of Summer which she starred in with Alison Brie, Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally.
Pablo Das is a funny, “mindful”, acoustic folk-punk (or, if you prefer antifolk or unfolk) singer. He’s recorded solo and with his band “Testosterone Kills” and recently opened for Kimya Dawson (Juno soundtrack) at her Off the Sauce show, an annual celebration of sobriety and recovery. Pablo is also a recovery counselor and teaches at the wonderful Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation.
Byron Bowers Master of the slow burn and thrilling to watch. Byron loves to tell a story, is playful, experimental, unloving and a risk taker. Can you tell we love Byron? One of the very few stand-up comedians to have appeared on Jimmy Kimmel, Byron has also toured nationally with Dave Chappelle, Hannibal Buress, Eric Andre and shared the spotlight at the Oddball Comedy Festival in 2013 with Louis CK, Jim Gaffigan and Sarah Silverman.
Scott Turner Schoefield is a player in the trans liberation movement. And also a player in the sense of being in plays! But from the start of his career his gender expression prevented him from being cast in traditional plays. So he wrote one-man shows, and began a national tour to critical acclaim. He has gone on to sell out some of the biggest theatre venues in the world. Plus you may know Scott from The Bold and the Beautiful. Scott is both bold and beautiful! #soapoperastar #genderqueer #groundbreaking
