He’s a comedian who made cerebral palsy sexy. She’s a singer-songwriter who made the harp cool. For one night only, they’ll share the stage for an experiment in storytelling, comedy, conversation, and song.

Zach Anner is an award-winning comedian, show host, and public speaker. In 2011, he won his own travel show on the Oprah Winfrey Network, "Rollin’ with Zach." He also hosted the series "Have a Little Faith" and "Top of the Mondays" for Rainn Wilson’s media company SoulPancake, and "Riding Shotgun" and "Workout Wednesdays" on his own YouTube channel, which has over 10 million hits.

Gillian Grassie is an award-winning harpist and singer-songwriter. A Philadelphia native, she has performed in over a dozen countries across four continents, including two tours as a cultural ambassador for the US State Department. She recently launched her fourth independent release.

Individually, their work has challenged conventions and delighted audiences with trademark depth and charm. When they met at one of Gillian’s shows in Los Angeles in 2013, a truly singular creative partnership took root. Over the past three years, they have acted as each other’s sounding boards, co-conspirators, and inspiration. Notably, Gillian and Zach worked closely together on Zach's critically acclaimed debut memoir, If at Birth You Don’t Succeed, which came out in March to rave reviews from Publishers Weekly, People Magazine, Kirkus Reviews, Lena Dunham, and many others.
