Event Details

Live StorySlam Show: Open-Mic True Tales | Oakland

StorySlam Oakland is a monthly open-mic and featured storytelling event where people tell true personal stories on a different theme each month, held every third Thursday at Sweet Bar Bakery.

Put your name in the hat to tell a true story from your life on the selected theme or just come and listen. They have informal judging and give out informal prizes to the best open-miker and the best overall storyteller. Plus they often give away raffle prizes, just for signing the email list at the show.

Open-mic tellers are chosen at random and get up to 5 minutes to tell their story. Featured storytellers get up to 10 minutes.

Rules: Stories must be true, about your own life, and touch on the theme in some way. A cowbell will sound when you’ve hit the time limit and then you have one minute to wrap it up.

Terrible things your parents thought would be good for you. Traumatic experiences that made you a better person. That moment you were scarred for life. Tragedy + Time = Comedy.

Come tell your 5-minute Childhood Traumas story at StorySlam, featuring selected storytellers plus an open-mic. Prizes will be awarded for Best Open-Mic story and Best Overall Storyteller.
