Tonight’s monthly story-telling jam theme is Go away
(but they really want you to stop on by).
This month’s Tell Me a Story (TMAS), Philadelphia’s long-running evening of storytelling, celebrates the stories that take you to far away lands, or have you running like the wind. The organizers are committed to showcasing as many storytellers as possible by not repeating a performer for at least a year. Thanks to this guideline, six of the seven storytellers this month have never told a story at a TMAS show.
Hosted by Tell Me A Story founder, Hillary Rea, this month’s line-up features TMAS regular Cecily Alexandria and newcomers Kristin Finger(ComedySportz), Ari Fishbein (Good Good Comedy), Jon Fortenbury (recent Philly transplant from Austin, TX), Sabina Leybold (also new to Philly and featured on Technical.ly), Sarah Pulver, and Ijanae Savage.
All tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door with cash or credit card. Doors open at 7 p.m., stories begin at 7:30 p.m. You can RSVP on Facebook.
