Jonathan is the creator of the brand This is 65. Born and raised in Annapolis, MD, Jonathan studied film with a minor in art at Villa Julie College (now Stevenson University). Jonathan has been making movies of some sort or another since high school and will continue to do so until the day he dies, presumably underneath a camera. In addition to writing, directing, and performing for Popsuckette Theatre, Jonathan also writes and illustrates the comics This is 65 and Day Job, and is the cohost of This is 65 The Podcast. His inspirations include (old) Tim Burton, Jean Pierre Juenet, David Fincher, Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side, Mel Brooks, Ghostbusters, his friend Patrick Anderson and his wife Bekah. Jonathan currently resides in Baltimore, MD with Bekah and 3 dumb cats.
Bekah grew up in Baltimore, MD and enjoys putting Old Bay on everything, including beer. She graduated from Towson University with a major in Electronic Media in Film with a minor in English, which technically makes her smarter than most of the other people on this page and also explains why she loves Woody Allen movies so much. Bekah openly dislikes the production process but will still stand behind the camera to make sure everything’s in focus since she’s the one who’s going to be editing everything. Speaking of editing, Bekah is This is 65 Films’ official (amazing) editor, taking all of our terrible raw materials and cobbling them together into a cohesive masterpiece. In addition to editing and performing in Popsuckette Theatre, Bekah is a cohost of This is 65 the Podcast, and enjoys knitting, Dorothy Parker, gin, and the Gilmore Girls.
Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, Chris never went to college, but studied tv and radio production in high school which got him a diploma he probably doesn’t deserve. His enjoyment of making movies was borne of a love and appreciation for the medium that he has felt since he was a small child watching Harold & Maude and Tim Burton’s Batman repeatedly. He is a lover of video games and most foods covered in gravy. He is co-host of This is 65 The Podcast and frequently does stand up comedy at open mics and other assorted venues in the Baltimore area. Chris writes and performs voices for Popsuckette Theatre and has appeared in front of and behind the camera of several shorts films. Chris’ spirit animal is a cross between a bear and baby rabbit.
Kelly was born in Washington DC and raised in Olney but finds neither of those places exciting. She has a Bachelor of Science in Film/Video/Theatre from Villa Julie College. Since those are art things, she doesn’t understand the science degree and would love for someone to explain this to her. Kelly has been performing in plays, improv troupes, short films, and her shower for about half of her life. She has played a wide rang of roles, from child to prostitute, to blue alien, to various British Persons. When she was younger she loved shooting improvised commercials, short comedy slashers, and parodies of French new wave films. Kelly performs in Popsuckette Theatre, and When she isn’t raging against the patriarchy, Kelly enjoys eating foods that incorporate cheese, drinking whole bottles of wine in backyards, and watching Arrested Development for the jillionth time
Also born and raised in Baltimore, MD, Mark studied English and History at Baltimore County Community College, or BCCC as the natives call it. Mark is a raging hyperactive puppy dog on the outside and philosophical spiritual hermit on the inside. In addition to starring in several short films, Mark writes and provides voices for Popsuckette Theatre. He also started a podcast with Chris called Mark and Chris Have a Podcast with Mark and Chris. They later renamed it This is 65 the Podcast when they brought in Jonathan as a cohost. Then Mark quit the podcast to focus on
gettin’ laid being a better person. Mark loves C.S. Lewis, the Ravens, and interrupting people right as they’re about to talk.
John Walker, the third of his name, grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, with vague dreams of becoming a charismatic cult leader. When sufficient charisma failed to manifest, he turned to the arts. Currently he fronts the band Rosemary Stretch, co-hosts the Movie Schmovie podcast, and lives in Baltimore with his small family and a smattering of pets. He is probably pacing around obsessing over a half-baked creative project as you read this. John composed and performed the original music for Popsuckette Theatre.
Jordan didn’t write a bio, probably because we was playing Magic the Gathering, so Jonathan wrote one for him. Ahem. Jordan Lincoln was born and raised in ancient Rome, having battled sphinxes and sasquatches from an early age. Jordan went to school for electronic…stuff? And currently makes a fine living blowing glass, probably. Jordan was a main puppeteer for Popsuckette Theatre.
Katie was born and raised just north of Baltimore, MD, so she is your one suburban member of this group. She just graduated from University of Maryland School of Medicine and is now officially practicing as a Doctor of Physical Therapy at a small clinic in northern MD while suffering from crippling student loan debt. She is obsessed with her pets, and everyone else’s, for that matter, which is why she cannot leave the house without a cloud of dog and cat hair following her. She loves backyard parties, games, hiking, snowboarding, the beach, and too many other things to name here. She loves so much stuff! Katie was a main puppeteer for Popsuckette Theatre.
Brian is an elusive, magical man, living in New York City, possibly affecting its infrastructure. There’s just no way to know for sure. When asked to write a bio, Brian responded “I am not good at talking about myself.” What Brian IS good at is making music, playing in the bands Vestascension, Blind Rhetoric, and Novella, and contributing music to Popsuckette Theatre.
