Do you have funny or amazing stories from your life? Do you enjoy true storytelling along the lines of The Moth? Are you wanting to have more connection and affection in your life? This event is for you.
Spontaneous Storytelling is a different kind of storytelling show that combines the fun of meeting new people with hearing and telling true stories. Six lucky storytellers win free drinks!
How it works:
We start with an icebreaker game which will have you meeting and talking to everyone in the bar. Answers from the game become part of the show! It's optional but a lot of fun, and makes the show unique. After the game, we select themes from the audience and move on to open-mic storytelling.
Put your name in the hat if you want to tell a true, five-minute story on any of the themes. It's called Spontaneous Storytelling because we don't practice beforehand!
The Rules: no reading or notes allowed; stories must be true, about you, and five minutes or less. We'll have a volunteer to help you stick to the time limit. And, we will give out free drinks to a bunch of lucky storytellers. It doesn't even have to be a good story!
