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.
