Share Your Story: Each night storyteller hopefuls have the opportunity to join the all star lineup. Volunteer names are drawn from a hat and one lucky person will get to tell their story.

The show features six, (plus possibly yours) true, short stories, told live without notes in a beer basement that feels like your living room. Funny, poignant, intimate (easy now, not like that), and engaging it’s a great way to spend your Wednesday.
