Spontaneous Storytelling: True Stories & Free Drinks for Storytellers | SF


Spontaneous Storytelling (featured on KALW radio) is a different kind of storytelling show that combines the fun of meeting new people with hearing and telling true stories.

Do you have stories from your life to tell? Do you enjoy hearing true stories like at The Moth? Are you annoyed with online dating and want to meet people in real life? This event is for you.

How it works:

The event starts with a social game, then select several different themes, then take turns telling stories until you run out of time. Four lucky storytellers win a free drink just for telling a true personal story.

The social game makes it easy to get up on stage, because you’ve just met people in the bar. It’s optional, but highly recommended. The answers from the game become part of the show. Then it’s time for storytelling. Put your name in the hat for a chance to tell a true, 5-minute story from your own life. Or just listen and laugh.

The Rules: no reading or notes allowed; stories must be true, about you, and 5 minutes or less. We’ll have a volunteer timer to help you stick to the time limit.

Just tell them at the door you heard about it on SF Funcheap and get in for $5 instead of $10.

On Valentine’s day, join us as we celebrate, vent, laugh and tell stories about being single. Or about relationships, online dating, breakups, sex, or googly eyes. If it’s about love, there’s a story there.

It’s a storytelling show where you can share a true story from your life and win a free drink. Or just listen and laugh.

Put your name in the hat for a chance to tell a true, 5-minute story from your life. If you get called to tell your story, you win a free drink ticket.

Stories have to be true, about you (not your best friend) & 5 minutes or less. No notes or reading allowed. Storytellers will be chosen at random from the names in the hat. Occasionally we may have a special guest perform.

For the first half-hour of the event, we do a social game with everyone in the bar. The game is optional, but it’s a great way to warm up and meet people. Just grab a game card when you come in. Everyone in the bar will be here for this event.

Bring ID, 21+ only.
