"The Cow Story"
"Writing on the Wall"
PREVIOUSLY SECRET INFORMATION is a comedic storytelling series. It's not stand-up comedy. It's not traditional storytelling. It's not even a mixture of the two. It's something else. The producers of this monthly series, Bruce Pachtman, Joe Klocek and Ty McKenzie, seek out people who are willing to tell the whole story. They welcome the comedy but urge storytellers to include the frightening, disastrous, and even tragic aspects of their stories.
It appears that they've hit on something. Last year, Previously Secret Information was included in The SF Weekly's BEST OF SF issue, played to full houses at SF Sketchfest and Lit Crawl, performed at the Comedy Central Stage in LA and just recently were honored in the SF Bay Guardian 2012 BEST OF THE BAY issue along with the other series produced at Stage Werx Theatre. PSI has also begun to attract performers with national reputations like Marc Maron, Will Durst, Scott Capurro and Greg Proops while continuing to include top local storytellers. And like good storytelling series the world over, they will soon launch a podcast.
